Gustavus Fagersteen (c. 1831-c.1890) moved to California in 1871. He was active in the Yosemite region from 1876 through 1890 and, for a time, was associated, in some loose partnership, with S. C. Walker, a photographer based in Stockton, California. Both Fagersteen and Walker "had been assistant photographers for J. J. Reilly; many of their [stereo] cards are Hazeltine mounts and images overprinted 'Successors to M. M. Hazeltine, Photographed by Walker & Fagersteen.' [Hazeltine] operated out of Stockton, 1868-1878, issuing stereoviews alone and in association with J. J. Reilly" (Mautz). Fagersteen operated his own studio in Yosemite Valley from 1886 through 1889. He produced photographic views of Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa big tree grove in 4x6 and 6x9 inch formats, as well as a very small quantity of stereoscopic cards. His main output appears to have consisted of posed photographs of early tourists visiting Yosemite. See Mautz, pp. 123, 179 and 489. Cloth portfolio a bit rubbed, very good; images largely fine with rich tones and good contrast. Provenance: Signature of Mrs. Lizzie Channing on the inside front cover. (#165998).
