The two volumes were reissued several times well into the s, while the engravings, as well as pirated copies of them, appeared frequently in magazines, other books, and prints.
Such was the popularity of American Scenery that the pair produced another set of prints of Canadian views also published in two volumes two years later entitled Canadian Scenery This too was regularly reprinted during the following decades, as well as being translated into French in Such works joined text to often quite lavish images in an effort to appeal to a growing British market for the travelogue, for the colonial prospect, and for records of the leisured pursuits of the middle and upper classes abroad.
At the same time, the period saw increasing reports of inter-racial tensions in the British colonies, from frontier skirmishes in the Eastern Cape Colony to attacks by Aborigines in the Australian bush and growing Maori opposition to British colonial expansion in New Zealand. Native American attacks on European settlers had also been a mainstay in accounts of westward expansion from the earliest English colonies, and reports of hostilities at various points along a straggling North American frontier continued into the s.
As a consequence, Native Americans could be readily erased from representations of Eastern seaboard landscapes such as those in American Scenery, which, despite the expansive promise of its title, went no farther west than the Niagara Falls; for Bartlett had done no more than follow the popular tourist route there from New York City through the Hudson Valley. Nathaniel Willis, American Scenery, vol. European settlement. Thus, in his description of Village of Little Falls, an image in which the evidence of solid, local commercial enterprise was framed by a rusticated sublime, Willis suggested the wildness of the Mohawk valley still guaranteed a home for the spirit of that eponymous Native American population now physically eradicated from the landscape in spite of its modern mills, aqueducts, and steam-engines Willis, American Scenery 2: William Henry Bartlett, Wigwam in the Forest, Steel engraving by John Cousen, 18 x 17 cm.

He has pointed, for example, to the predilection amongst colonial prospect-makers for panoramic outlooks as the means par excellence for evoking economic, social, and moral advance Hamer 49— The elevated, expansive outlook of View from the Citadel of Quebec, in this regard, accentuated both the apparent ease of grasping that distant landscape and, through the details surveyed, its mastery by European habitations, roads, and harbor works. This and similar pictured prospects, such as Mr.
The precursors to these colonial prospects were visual records of picturesque tours of Britain and a tradition of British coastal views. The visual devices of the picturesque and Robert Grant Fig. Henry Butler Stoney —94 , Mr. Wood engraving by A. Wood, 11 x 19 cm.
Henry Butler Stoney, Residence in Tasmania, opp. In the case of Tasmania, there was, perhaps, more in common with the America that Willis and Bartlett described than other parts of the British colonial world. The cultivated terrain and leisurely promenaders outside Mr. Robinson allured them to quit their hiding places, and submit to the Government.
At the same time, these were years during which theories of race were deepening and becoming more complex. Thus, during the s and s, ethnologists such as Robert Latham engaged in immensely detailed categorizations of racial and linguistic difference. Of course, the idea of Caucasian or Anglo-Saxon superiority was nothing new. Charles Hamilton Smith, N.

For most commentators, by the s the disappearance of indigenous populations seems to have been accepted as a fait accompli, lamentable perhaps, but nevertheless a form of providentialism that helped explain European expansion, and Native Americans were inevitably amongst those so doomed.
They thus took their place with the low, sensual races that included the African, and their physical attributes became a measure of their lowly status. Images such as American Type and N. These are images and descriptions of a very different order from those produced by Bartlett and Willis, but they were nevertheless part of a continuum of evolving prospects of racial difference.
Linguistic, as much as artistic forms, conventions, stylistic modes, and handlings framed these prospects and effected important informational or disinformational work. He linked the darkening of white skin with pregnancy, fever, violent disruptions of normal life, even with being a beggar Prichard 1: — The coupling of race and biology had here come to guarantee European domination of the globe, and the Anglo-Saxonism of Carlyle, Knox, and Smith construed racial destiny as working itself out across space as well as time.
For some writers, as a consequence, America could be viewed as British destiny writ large. In the early decades of the nineteenth century, British attitudes to their transatlantic cousins had been ambivalent. As much as such early nineteenthcentury accounts of the American polity offered a reproach to British social and economic conditions, the United States had long been seen as inheritor of a distinctively British liberal tradition. By the s, links between the two countries were strengthening, not least through the economic ties of cotton production and manufacture.
Continued British emigration was bringing greater familial connections, while intellectual and literary exchange was growing with the increasing facility of transatlantic travel. At the same time, explanations of racial difference had always circulated trans-globally, although the expunging of Native American title in the s and the politics of abolitionism in the s and s made the transatlantic dialogue particularly important. The founders of the Confederacy saw themselves as participating in a widespread European movement, the selfdetermination of a people.
Ayers 62 At the same time, as Robert Young has argued, American debates about race and slavery had a material impact in Britain Young American ethnologists such as Louis Agassiz, John Nott, and George Gliddon were published in Britain, and their volumes made frequent references to their British counterparts.
These panoramas also formed part of a much richer jumble of metropolitan colonial bricolage. Racial attitudes were clearly interwoven in very complex ways across the Atlantic, part of a roiling strain that ran through European ideas about race from at least the sixteenth century. In Canadian Scenery, by contrast, that presence was more contingent, subject to containment and management.
