Scope note
Photographs made by the process called daguerreotype, which produces a direct positive image on a silver-coated copper plate. They are often mounted in special cases lined with red velvet or leather. They are named for Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre of France, who invented the technique in collaboration with Nicéphore Niépce in the 1830s.
