Bosse for the Army Corps of Engineers. They show the Mississippi River between Minneapolis and St. Louis, and were taken from 1883 to 1892 as part of the Corps effort to document and understand the ever-changing river. Not much is known about Bosse. Born in Germany in 1844, he entered the United States in 1865 and worked in stationery stores in Chicago. At that time, stationers, in addition to selling paper and ink, were dealers of printed books, fine prints, and frames.

Letters and cards suggest that Bosse liked to drink, sing, and play cards, but he was a sophisticated man by American standards, melding a European sensibility with his Midwestern creativity and leaving behind a landmark of cartography and a major work of American Impressionism.
