- There are numerous
publications on the development of the photography. For a description of the daguerreotype
process, see Floyd and Marion Rinhart The American Daguerreotype, (Athens, GA: The
University of Georgia Press, 1981); the work of another African American daguerreotypist
is the focus of Deborah Willis J.P. Ball, Daguerrean and Studio Photographer,
(New York: Garland Publishers, 1993); for technical information on the preservation of
daguerreotypes, look at James M. Reillys Care and Identification of 19th Century
Photographic Prints, (Rochester: Eastman Kodak Company, 1986); finally, Joan L.
Severas Dressed for the Photographer: Ordinary Americans and Fashion, 1840-1900, (Kent,

used in nineteenth century photography.
