The Art of the Daguerreotype
by Helmut Gernsheim
Publisher's Description
Illustrated with more than sixty-five full color reproductions, the subjects of this book vary widely--from a rare male nude to one of the first photographs of Niagara Falls. The daguerreotypes shown here have been selected from the collection of Stefan Richter, one of the most extensive such collections still in private hands. It is the first time the collection has ever been shown to the public. Carefully reproduced to preserve the hand-tinting on the originals, this is an extraordinary and well-designed book.
