Plate-Holder for Cameras (Daguerreotype Camera Attachment)
1855, 10 April
US Patent no: 12700A
"My invention consists in a peculiarly-arranged frame in which the plate-holder is permitted to slide, by which means I am enabled to take four daguerreotypes upon one plate and at one sitting, diierent portions of the plate being brought successively opposite an opening in the frame, the opening remaining stationary in the axis of the camera while the plate-holder and plate are moved."
