Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
A highlight of a forthcoming Paris sale early next month is a handwritten document from 1829, signed Niépce, titled Notice sur l’Héliographie. Lot 53 can be yours for an estimated €35,000-50,000. The eight highly legible pages, written in an elegant yet precise style, are of major interest for the history of photography and, in fact, are said to constitute the ‘birth certificate’ of photography.
Or how about a cheaper Lot 23 of Daguerre's document on the history and description of the daguerreotype 1839 for an estimated €1,500-2,000.
With Christmas just round the corner, you can pick both up at this auction link here.
