Auction: George Stacey Abolitionist newly discovered collection of Daguerreotypes/Ambrotypes / 21 February 2018

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

Comment by Malcolm Batty on Wednesday

Good luck to anyone bidding at the auction. The photographer name BEARD is very important to UK photography. His work needs to be saved by people who value his contribution.
