1846 (original Daguerreotype)
National Gallery of Canada, The Origins of Photography: The Matthew R. Isenburg and Enhanced Isenburg Collections 1840-1880
This is based on the daguerreotype, Meade 5 fingers in thecollection of the Société franþaise de photographie.
The crystalotype clearly claims that it was ----
Crystalotyped by J. A. Whipple, from the original and only life picture in America, taken by and in the possession of Meade Brothers.
Though Charles Meade had it in America in February 1855, after this crystalotype was published, he returned with the daguerreotype to France where it finally ended up in the SFP where it resides today.
This illustration was included in the lecture "The many faces of Daguerre" presented by Matt Isenburg at the Daguerreian Society Symposium (2009).
