world. Specialties include historic photographs of New York City and
Central Park, a large inventory of important W. Eugene Smith photographs,
and rare African-Americana. More eclectic highlights include a collection
of hand-colored photographs of French criminals from the 1920's, a suite of
photographs from the archives of the U.S. Steel Company, and a substantial
inventory of daguerreotypes, ambrotypes and tintypes. Charles Schwartz also
has a deep interest in Japanese photography and has an extensive offering of
19th and 20th century works from Japan, including rare ambrotypes.
