We realize that no photograph or scan of a daguerreotype or other image can be a 100% perfect reproduction. We do our best to accurately reproduce and desribe the images, but your final acceptance can only come when you actually hold the image in your hand. We will gladly accept a return of any image that does not meet your expectations, provided you notify us of your intention to return it, and it has not been tampered with in any way.

A dynamic 4x5-inch daguerreotype presented in a 4-3/4x6-inch mat and English-style "half-plate" push-button leather case. The image is a striking portrait of an English gentleman, seated at a table and holding an unidentified book. The image has been resealed some time long before we acquired it; the apparent "cloudiness" seen in the image is, we believe, on the inside of the glass and not on the image. Looking at the image from a slight angle, the sky in the background appears to have a magnificent light blue tint. The English-style oversized half-plate leather push-button case in minutely warped but in Excellent condition, and carries the gold-stamped imprint on the reverse, Mayall, 224 Regent Street, Argyll Place, London . My Mayall-ology is admittedly weak, but this image is by John E. Mayall, probably c. 1853; and not by John J.E. Mayall, who studied daguerreotyping in the US before returning to London in 1847 and opening a chain of daguerreian studios. $1,200.00
