Description
Preface: The object of this little work is to fill a void much complained of by Daguerreotypists particularly young beginers. The author has waited a long time in hopes that some more able pen would be devoted to the subject, but the wants of the numerous, and constantly increasing, class, just mentioned, induces him to wait no longer. All the English works on the subject particularly on the practical application, of Photogenic drawing are deficient in many minute details, which are essential to a complete understanding of the art. Many of their methods of operating are entirely different from, and much inferior to, those practised in the United States: their apparatus, also, cannot compare with ours for completeness, utility or simplicity.
