Daguerreotype photograph filing series (Library of Congress)( Visual )

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The majority of the daguerreotypes are portraits by American photographers, including many by Mathew Brady's studio and the first American daguerreotype, made by Robert Cornelius. The collection also includes some early architectural views, outdoor scenes, and copies of works of art. Portraits are primarily of men, chiefly politicians, but also artists, journalists, and entertainers. Some of the portraits are occupational daguerreotypes that show workers with the tools of their trade. Unidentified people appear in more than 200 images. Among the architectural views are the White House, Capitol, Patent Office, and the General Post Office in Washington D.C., by John Plumbe, and street scenes in Philadelphia. The 30 images from the American Colonization Society Records are of Liberian government officials and colonists and relate to the Society's resettlement program for African Americans; includes images taken by Rufus Anson and Augustus Washington

Prof. Martin Hans Boye by Robert Cornelius( Visual )

1 edition published in 1843 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Cornelius was the son of Christian Cornelius, a Dutch immigrant to Philadelphia in 1783. A well-to-do manufacturer of lamps and chandeliers, the elder Cornelius sent his son to private school where he took a special interest in chemistry. In 1831, he began to work for his father and specialized in silver-plating and metal polishing, a skill for which he was so sufficiently well-renowned, that in 1844, the newly-created Smithsonian Institute entrusted some of its early experiments to him. It was natural, then, for Joseph Saxton to approach Cornelius for the silver plate required for his daguerreotype of Central High School, and equally natural for Cornelius himself to become interested in the procedure. {excerpted from the ExplorePaHistory website, 4-10-2014}
