Sixth Plate



EW-11    Terms of Sale

SHE JUST COULDN’T BE BOTHERED … To look from her Bible. When I resealed this sixth plate dag, I found a book so large under the mat that I figured it must be a Bible. Bothe for sure born in the 1700s, this elderly couple were game to have their daguerreotype made and it’s a fine one at that, despite grandma’s inattention. Written in pencil in the bottom of the case are copying instructions: “Paul White 4 CDV by himself.” Do tell me if you have one of the images! Paul holds his cane, you’ll note. The dag comes in a case with a split spine and is in good condition.
