By Ingersoll and Haynes

  • Published as Yellowstone National Park: The World’s Wonderland, the Green Book has 24 pages that fold out accordion-style with 77 images of scenes in or near Yellowstone National Park. The engraved images by Charles Frey of Frankfort, Germany are based on photographs by F. J. Haynes and T. W. Ingersoll.
  • This is a book published in 1889 by W. C. Riley whose company was based in St. Paul, Minnesota. This small-format book (14 by 19 centimeters, or 5.5 by 7.5 inches) has come to be known by collectors as “The Green Book” though some copies have dark maroon covers.
