British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Does anyone have any information about the Egerton brothers, Jeremiah and John, who were the subject of litigation by Richard Beard in 1845? I have read what’s available (R. D. Wood, et al), but I am looking specifically for any daguerreotype or daguerreotype case which can be identified as having (possibly) been made by the Egertons.

Many thanks. Reply here, or contact mijaco@tin.it.

Following up on the Egerton request, has anyone ever seen this daguerreotype case pattern before? If so, can you relate it to a specific British daguerreotype studio?

I was recently visiting the site with the idea of finding something of a research nature to test my Photo History database:

I have included all of the referenced works in their entirety in a Dropbox link below. I have several his on French journals which I can provide if this project is still active.

Dear Richard, many thanks for the suggestions. Your database looks excellent, and I will gratefully make use of it.

I had already found references, mainly from published articles by R. Derek Wood (with whom I am in contact), but I was/am hoping to locate an example of an actual daguerreotype that may have been made by the Egertons for the purposes of comparison.

I own a remarkable early English daguerreotype which I am trying to maker-identify (with a view to publication), as it is clearly neither a Beard nor a Claudet studio product. 
Mike.
