WELCOME!

This resource serves as an extensive gathering of primary source texts, graphics, and ephemera regarding the history, art, and appreciation of the daguerreotype.

My initial endeavor will be to provide an array of texts with a particular focus on texts from 1839. As I have a large gathering of material in various stages of preparation, the content on this site will quickly grow.

Much of the content provided on this site is provided in pdf format and requires Adobe Reader (or similar) to view. Depending on your browser or device, the file may open in your browser window, in a separate window, or as a download.
