The Daguerreian Society


Some of the texts we reprint may contain the use of derogatory racial slurs. Any such word is certainly one that we would choose not to use today. The words remain in the reprint, however, because that is how the text was originally written. Although times have changed, if we are to understand history by studying it, then we must be able to read documents as originally written, without any attempt at cleansing. We do not reprint any text to offend anyone; rather, we hope that our texts shed a sharper light on our cultural past.
