Hancock House, Boston: An original Crystallotype or Sun Picture
Frontispiece for Various writers Homes of American Statesmen: With Anecdotical, Personal, and Descriptive Sketches (New York: G.P. Putnam & Co., London: Sampson Low, Son & Co, 1854), Frontispiece.
From page iv of the Publishers' Notice:
Most of the illustrations in this volume have been engraved from original drawings, or daguerreotypes taken for the purpose. The frontispiece is somewhat of a curiosity, each copy being an original sun-picture on paper. The great luminary has here entered into direct competition with other artists in the engraving business our readers can judge how well he has succeeded.
