Abstract:

The American Antiquarian Society's photograph collection includes nearly 230 daguerreotypes. Daguerreotypes, the first commercial form of photography, appeared in America around the year 1839. These were produced by first sensitizing a polished silvered copper plate with iodine vapor, and then exposing the plate to light. The image was developed over hot mercury, fixed, and rinsed. This was a direct positive process, meaning that no negatives were produced, and so each daguerreotype is unique. Daguerreotypes can be easily distinguished from other early photographs by their reflective, mirror-like surface. They were generally produced in the following sizes, which are noted in the inventory: Imperial or Mammoth Plate - Larger than 6 1/2" x 8 1/2"; Whole Plate - 6 1/2" x 8 1/2"; Half Plate - 4 1/2" x 5 1/2"; Quarter Plate - 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"; Sixth Plate - 2 3/4" x 3 1/4"; Ninth Plate - 2"x 2 1/2"; Sixteenth Plate - 1 1/2" x 1 3/4."

The collection includes daguerreotypes, some in cases, made mainly in the United States, with portraits of men, women and children. Notable subjects include Edgar Allan Poe, Clara Barton, Abby Kelly Foster Daniel Webster, with multiple portraits of Caroline Moore, Ida Adelia Barton, Elihu Burritt, Caroline Moore, Luther Holman Hale, Mary Louise May Pearson, and Dr. Samuel B. Woodward. There are a number of unidentified portraits in the collection. Rare views of San Francisco and Worcester are also included.

Photographers represented in this collection include Luther Holman Hale, John Denison Baldwin, B.D. Maxham, Dr. Van Alstin, Moses Sanford Chapin, J.D. Wells, S. Peck & Co., Williamson Bros., George Adams, George Clark Jr., Samuel Root, Alfred P. Critchlow, and Meade & Bro.
