Young girl; sixth-plate
  collection of Kenneth E. Nelson


"The daguerreotype will always be loved for its suavity of expression, its tempered technique and its convincing grace. Truth of substance was wedded to truth of style in its mellow sheen. . . The daguerreotype speaks a language of its own that touches the common chords of life."

-- from The Daguerreotype,
    by Sadakichi Hartmann
