Hi Edward,

I think GWW is still somewhat underrated due the volume of reproduction.  I think time will raise his stature further.  I have a similar number of images to yourself, mostly stereos and cdvs but also some larger albumen prints,  I've even added a few of the late GWW postcards to my collection.

I have been working on a very large digital stereo card index database. (you cant buy them all!)

I think I may have been a little over keen in my attribution of the cdv image i posted,  but the images is still very fine and one of my favorites.

Regards

ian
