DagNews: Daguerre's manual found in Mafra National Library, Portugal

posted in: Events, Senza categoria | 0


Last November 2013, photographic conservator  Luis Pavão and his team (LUPA, Lisbon) had the opportunity to work in the Mafra National Library where they found some very interesting 19th century photographic manuals as part of the Possidónio Joaquim da Silva (1806 -1896) estate.

Among the volumes discovered, one is of special interest to us because it is the “Nouvelle Edition” of Daguerre’s manual Historique et Description des procédés du Daguerréotype et du Diorama, published by Alphonse Giroux et Cie, in August 1839.
