[Editor's note: The attribution of this daguerreotype of Daguerre to Claudet is incorrect. This illustration is based on a daguerreotype taken by Charles Richard Meade of the Meade Brothers, New York, during his visit to Paris in 1848. See Melissa Banta, A Curious & Ingenious Art: Reflections on Daguerreotypes at Harvard (Iowa City: University of Iowa Press, 2000) opposite page 1.]
