About This Item

E.S Hayden. Splendid Daguerreotype Miniatures, Taken in Every Style,

"His Miniatures are warranted not to be surpassed by any, for their richness of tone and life-like appearance; standing out in such bold relief, that they can be seen equally well in any light. All those wishing a perfect likeness of themselves, or their friends, would do well to call soon; confident that neither the Pictures nor the Price will fail to suit. . . "

Original early letterpress broadside. 10 by 12 inches. Illustrated with decorated border. American Office Waterbury, CT (ca. 1850).

Broadsides were used by itinerant practitioners who traveled from town to town in the mid-19th century taking portrait photographs of willing subjects. Daguerreotypes ceased to be used by the mid-1850s.

This particular example belonged to E. S. Hayden, a well-travelled daguerreotypist in the Connecticut area. (See John S. Craig, Craig's Daguerreian Registry, Vol.1, page 172).

Some mild toning; two very tiny holes not affecting text, remnants of removed tape in two spots on verso, o/w Fine. Rare.
