  • Title: The Daguerreian Society: Annual article
    Descriptive info: This article was reprinted in the.. Daguerreian Annual 1994.. with permission from the.. Walt Whitman Quarterly Review.. 9 (Winter 1992):148-53.. Footnotes appear in (parentheses).. Notes on.. an Early.. of Walt Whitman.. by Denise Bethel.. On a recent trip to the Walt Whitman Historic Site in Camden, New Jersey, I was given the opportunity to examine the early daguerreotype of Whitman located there.. (1) This superb portrait (Saunders #1.. 1;.. WWQR.. [.. ]--1840s, #2), showing the poet in frock coat and black cravat, may be the earliest photograph of Whitman extant and has been reproduced many times.. (2) Whitman scholarship traditionally assigns this image to Whitman's New York newspaper days, during the author's stints on, say, the New York.. Aurora.. or the Brooklyn.. Eagle.. , with suggested dates ranging from the early to late 1840s.. (3) In the image of Whitman presented--a serious young man, dressed in the style of the day, with one lock of hair turning prematurely grey--there is nothing to contradict this.. After a brief survey of Whitman daguerreotype portraits,(4) however, I was struck by the absence of information regarding the physical attributes of this and other daguerreotypes of the author: what the plate sizes might be, how the images are cased or framed, what markings might be present that would be meaningful to a historian of nineteenth-century photographs, markings that might have been overlooked by literary scholars.. My examination of the early Whitman daguerreotype in Camden yielded surprising results.. Based on my knowledge of American daguerreotypes and how they were made, I propose that the Camden portrait of Whitman was not taken in New York, but in New Orleans, and thus can be dated precisely to that period of February to May 1848 when Whitman was 28 years of age.. First, a description of the Camden daguerreotype in standard photographic terms: the portrait is a half plate,(5) housed in a mahogany-colored.. passe-partout.. mount(6) and gilt wall frame.. The size of the image, framed by the oval mat window, is slightly larger than quarter-plate size (sight size 4-7/8 x 3-1/2 inches), although the edges of the image extend beyond the mat opening, thus bringing the total plate size to that of a half-plate (approximately 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches).. The daguerreotype is not presented in a case, as one might expect of a New York daguerreotype of the 1840s, but rather in a mahogany-colored glass.. mount, measuring 6-3/8 x 5 inches, with gilt-edged window and a single gilt-ruled decorative border.. The mount and its cover glass are sealed together, as is customary for daguerreotypes housed in this way, with matching mahogany- colored paper edging; the daguerreotype plate itself is sealed to the verso of the mount's card backing with paper strips, as was also common; covering the daguerreotype plate is a rectangle of brittle card, affixed to the back of the mount with further paper scraps.. In my opinion, this.. mount and its various paper seals are contemporary with the daguerreotype itself and are likely original.. Although portions of the paper seal around the card covering the daguerreotype plate are beginning to split from age, the edges of this seal are largely undisturbed and show no signs of tampering.. The whole daguerreotype "package"--i.. e.. , the daguerreotype plate, mount, and cover glass, sealed together-now is displayed in a gilt wooden frame with unmarked wooden backing.. Although this frame is not new, it would be difficult to determine whether or not it is original to the piece, but this is a less important matter.. As it is not attached in any way to the original daguerreotype package, the frame could be exchanged easily, even now, for another period frame of the same size, with no one the wiser.. When I examined the daguerreotype, the frame's wooden backing was held in place by four small modem nails that were not at all rusted and hence quite easily removed, a sign that the frame had not remained undisturbed for decades.. In this instance, fortunately, only the original daguerreotype package, with its mount and paper seals, was important for my purposes.. To a photographic historian, the first indication that the portrait might not have been made in New York City is the.. mount in which the daguerreotype plate is housed.. Amount of this nature is found customarily on European daguerreotypes, and more specifically, on daguerreotypes made in France.. These mounts are sometimes made of paper, but more often are of glass,  ...   thus we can be sure that.. "Le Messager".. was published continuously in the year that Whitman visited New Orleans.. Whoever took the daguerreotype--or whoever worked in his studio--seems to have had an issue of the paper at hand to use in sealing Whitman's daguerreotype plate to the back of the mount.. If there was ever a daguerreotypist's label on the back of the passe-partout mount, or on the frame, it is now lost; this small scrap of.. Le Messager,.. however, serves almost as well as a label to locate the daguerreotype in the Louisiana of the 1840s that Whitman knew.. In the coming months, I intend to investigate the Camden daguerreotype's connections to New Orleans more fully, in hopes of discovering which daguerreotypist might have made the portrait--if indeed, his identity can ever be known.. I wanted at this time, however, to share my observations with the Whitman scholarly community, for I feel that the evidence thus far points conclusively to the daguerreotype's New Orleans origin.. I would appreciate hearing from Whitman scholars with specialized knowledge of the author's New Orleans activities who might aid me in this search.. Notes:.. (1) I wish to thank Christian M.. Bethmann, Superintendent 1, Lebanon State Forest, New Jersey State Park Service, for so graciously allowing me to inspect the Camden daguerreotype.. I would also like to thank Grant Romer, Photographic Conservator, International Museum of Photography and Film at George Eastman House, Rochester, New York, for discussing with me the terminology and construction of the.. mount and especially Michael Deas, author of.. The Portraits and Daguerreotypes of Edgar Allan Poe.. (Charlottesville, VA: University Press of Virginia, 1989), for speedily providing me with information on.. (2) The portrait is sometimes reproduced in Henry S.. Saunders,.. Whitman Portraits.. (Toronto: N.. p.. , 1922) as #I.. 1; the.. Walt Whitman Quarterly Review,.. Volume 4, Nos.. 2-3, Fall/Winter, 1986-1987, reproduces it as the second portrait from the decade of the 1840s.. See also Justin Kaplan,.. Walt Whitman: A Life.. (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1980), plate 6; Henry Seidel Canby,.. Walt Whitman: An American; A Study in Biography.. (New York: Houghton Mifflin Co.. , 1943), plate IV; and the Godine edition of Walt Whitman,.. Specimen Days.. (Boston, 197 1), 124.. (3).. places the portrait in the early 1840s, when Whitman worked on the.. , and tentatively suggests John Plumbe, Jr.. , as the photographer.. Kaplan, op.. cit.. , captions the picture as "Walt Whitman in the 1840s at about age twenty-five.. " Canby, op.. , also attributes the plate to Plumbe and describes it as "Walt Whitman in the 1840s or the earliest 1850s," "probably taken while he was editor of.. The Brooklyn Eagle.. (4) For a special Whitman issue of.. Seaport Magazine.. (New York: South Street Seaport Museum, Winter, 199 1), I was asked to contribute a general article on Whitman and the daguerreotype.. In that article I followed Whitman scholarship in attributing this early image to a New York photographer of the 1840s; I regret that I was not able to examine the Camden plate until after that article went to press.. (5) A daguerreotype is commonly described in terms of its plate size-e.. g.. , half-plate, quarter-plate, sixth-plate-rather than its dimensions in inches or centimeters.. The "whole plate" supplied to daguerreotypists by manufacturers of photographic equipment measured about 6-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches; smaller plates approximated a rough division of the whole pate into halves, quarters, and the like.. (6).. Passe-partout.. mount is the terminology used in referring to a mount, or mat, with its central portion cut out to receive a picture.. This opening is referred to as the mount or mat "window.. (7) Cf.. Margaret Denton Smith and Mary Louis Tucker,.. Photography in New Orleans: The Early Years, 1840-1865..

    Descriptive info: The Daguerreian Society 2011 Symposium Benefit Live Auction.. CLICK HERE TO JUMP TO THE CATALOGUE.. Auction a Success.. The October 29, 2011 Daguerreian Society benefit auction was a resounding success.. Preliminary numbers indicate our revenue collected (before expenses, mostly shipping) as about $12,000 for a new record.. As usual, donated lots were crucial to this effort.. Also, 27 absentee bidders placed 96 bids which spurred on the bidders in the room.. Most of these absentee bidders were Daguerreian Society members who didn't attend for various reasons, and this was a chance for them to connect.. There were a few bidders not affiliated with the Society.. Most of the material was from estates, resulting in more group lots than usual.. However, this extra quantity was absorbed readily by the room.. In recent years we've boasted an astonishing 84% sell-through rate.. This year only one lot did not sell, for a mind-boggling 98%.. Lot #51, realizing $3630, was an appropriate crescendo to the evening as it was a donation and also represented the high point in sales.. Results for individual lots are posted below..

He learned how to make daguerreotypes from the internet.. He acquired the camera, the chemicals and the plates by sheer persistence, and taught himself the process.. Daguerreian Society Co-President Jeff Green befriended LI through the internet and was active in soliciting plates from the contemporary daguerreotypists for him.. Li has become a prolific daguerreotypist and plans on making some outdoor scenes soon, as well as a series on the senior citizens of China.. He is now a member of The Daguerreian Society.. As a 'Thank you' to the contemporary daguerreotypists and friends who have helped him, Li has donated this magnificent portrait..
