The phototype listed has as "Fizeau process engraving from a daguerreotype" may be incorrect. Berres (Christian Joseph Berres Edler von Perez 18 March 1796, Göding – 24 December 1844, Vienna) used a chemical etching method rather than the physical one used by Hippolyte Fizeau (1819-1896).
Lenia Oliveira Fernandes at the Rijksmuseum is researching the Berres process (October 2016).
