Text by M. Susan Barger and William B. White.
Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, DC, 1991. In English. 320 pp., 133 black-and-white illustrations, 9x11ΒΌ".

This book is the first in-depth study of the daguerreotype process at the microscopic level. In a comprehensive way, Barger and White describe the earliest scientific studies on the daguerreotype along with the latest scientific research to reveal for the first time how the daguerreotype process works. They also discuss old methods and techniques for cleaning daguerreotypes and describe new methods for preserving these beautiful images. The authors also contribute a methodology for future study of photographic deterioration and preservation and for application to the study of other art objects and artifacts. The book contains many previously unpublished scientific daguerreotypes and micrographs of daguerreotype surfaces.
