14 [Exhibiton catalog] Young America, The Daguerreotypes of Southworth & Hawes
386521066x / 9783865210661 
[ANTIQUARIAN PHOTOGRAPHY] Young America, The Daguerreotypes of Southworth & Hawes, Gottingen: Steidl, 2005. Large, heavy quarto, first edition, pp. 552, purple cloth boards, extensive and beautiful reproductions of daguerrotypes. Edited by Grant Romer and Brian Wallis, this book was released to accompany an exhibit, and it quickly became the most important reference in the field. No question, if you need expertise in daguerreotypes, you have to have a copy. Southworth & Hawes treated their work as art, amid a vast group of hacks, and it is admired as much today as it was when new. The writers of this book fit the firm into the context of their era, and the photo reproductions are probably the biggest collection you can see in one volume. Condition of this book: fine, still sealed in publisher's shrink wrap.
