Dr George Skene Keith, a surgeon and elder brother of Scottish photographer Thomas Keith, traveled to Palestine in 1844 with his father, the theologian Alexander Keith, and made what may be among the earliest daguerreotypes taken there. They were later used as the basis for engravings by W. Miller and published in the 36th edition of Alexander Keith's massively popular book "Evidence of the Truth of the Christian Religion" in 1849.
