    Description

    Six Early Daguerreotypes and Tintypes. Including: 1) a half-plate dag of mother and daughter, 2) a half-plate dag of three children who apparently don't enjoy being photographed, 3) an unmounted half-plate dag of a seated gentleman, 4) an unmounted quarter-plate dag of a young girl, 5) a somewhat dark sixth-plate tintype of a child in his "nightie," and 6) a sixteenth-plate tintype of an infant cut down from a larger image. We also include two copper mats suitable for sixth or quarter plate images. The condition varies, but is generally good or better.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
