A Devil taking a daguerreotype
Published as the frontispiece for Barón de Parla-Verdades (pseud.), 1849, Madrid al daguerrotipo, (Madrid).
In this book the daguerreotype is used as a symbol of truthfulness.
I'm indebted to Roberto Ferrari for bringing this illustration to my attention. (Yahoo, Photohistory list, 11 September 2011)
