Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Following on from the sale of the Dr Swaine Taylor daguerreotypes last month another interesting collection has surfaced in East Anglia. From a deceased estate and held in storage for the last 40 years or so a group of 20 portraits of the Stacey family by Claudet/Le Beau/Beard/Kilburn/Mayall etc. is to be sold by Cheffins Auctioneers in Cambridge on February 21.
George Stacey (1787-1857) English Quaker and Anti-Slavery Campaigner appears in several of the 12 daguerreotypes, either singularly or with his second wife Mary Barclay. Other family members /associates form the remainder of the group which will be offered in several Lots. Further details in due course from the auctioneers: http:/www.cheffins.co.uk/auctions/fine-art
UPDATE: Catalogue now on-line for Cheffins Library Sale next week which includes 20 daguerreotype/ambrotype portraits of the British Abolitionist George Stacey and members of his family. The relevant lots start at 135 (click here)
