(A) Published in a multivolume work regarded as a magnificent piece of visual anthropology, Edward S. Curtis had made more than 40,000 photographs of the American Indian starting before the turn of the century and continuing for some thirty years.
-- the first clause illogically modifies "Edward S. Curtis". "Edward S. Curtis" cannot be published.

(B) Beginning before the turn of the century and continuing for some thirty years, Edward S. Curtis made more than 40,000 photographs of the American Indian and published them in a multivolume work regarded as a magnificent piece of visual anthropology.
-- "them" illogically refers to American Indian.

(C) More than 40,000 photographs of the American Indian made by Edward S. Curtis, beginning before the turn of the century and continuing for some thirty years, was published by him in a multivolume work regarded as a magnifi-cent piece of visual anthropology.
-- using two subordinate cluases before the main cluase to modify it is awkward.

(D) Having made more than 40,000 photographs of the American Indian, beginning before the turn of the century and continuing for some thirty years, the multivolume work in which Edward S. Curtis published them was re- garded as a magnificent piece of visual anthropology.
-- using two subordinate cluases before the main cluase to modify it is awkward.

(E) Edward S. Curtis had made more than 40,000 photographs of the American Indian published in a multivolume work regarded as a magnifi- cent piece of visual anthropology, starting before the turn of the century and continuing for some thirty years.

E. A- wrong modifier; B- "them" reffers to the indians, not to the photos; C- wrong modifier + wrong verb(was is incorrect, were would be ok); D- wrong- not the multivolume work made photos.
