Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I just did a little more digging and was slightly mistaken. Only one of the images is confirmed to be by Claudet, the others are not attributed but have the same provenance. These daguerreotypes had belonged to James David Forbes. The full description of the Claudet image is as follows: Still in original cloth bound hard case with Mr Claudet, 107 Regent street in gold lettering. Image damaged but just visible are four men, one standing and four seated around a table with a piece of equipment? on it. [Identified as J D Forbes, Rev William Brown, Hugh Lyon Playfair and Dr George Buist]. On back is decorative label of "Mr Antoine Claudet, 107 Regent
Street", by royal patent "Daguerrotypes, Miniatures, plain, coloured and non-inverted daguerrotype portraits".
I hope this clarification helps.
All the best,
Just stumbled across this thread, and I have an absolutely beautiful pair of stereos of Julia Cameron, nee Buckley, taken 1853-4 at 107 Regent St which I'm more than happy to help you out with high-res copies obverse & reverse, including the case, if you wish?
