Star Spangled Banner Newspaper 1850s Patriotic Anthem Daguerreotype For Sale

Star Spangled Banner Newspaper 1850s Patriotic Anthem Daguerreotype

"The Star Spangled Banner," the national anthem of the United States of America, was written by Francis Scott Key in 1814. By the time of the Daguerreian era, it had become a popular anthem at 4th of July celebrations and other large gatherings. Therefore, it's only logical that a newspaper would eventually be named after it. A note enclosed with this daguerreotype indicates that the newspaper was published in Boston. We found online verification that Star Spangled Banner was listed as a weekly newspaper in the New England Mercantile Union Directory (1848, 1849, 1851), City Directory of Boston (1848), The Boston Directory (1849), and The Massachusetts Register and United States Calendar for the Year of Our Lord (1855). LATERALLY REVERSED. This daguerreotype is laterally reversed which means the daguerreotypist did not use a correcting prism. The letters "STAR SPANG…" appear laterally reversed and by inference we can assume it says "Star Spangled Banner." We have added a flipped and reversed scan of the newspaper for your viewing. Daguerreian era convention suggests that this is a depiction of the editor or publisher of the newspaper.SIZE. Sixth plate.HOUSING. Split case.CONDITION. Late 20th century seals. Light mat abrasions. Halo of tarnish. Spider mold and tiny black spot at the top of the best. APPEARANCE. His face and hair are very sharp. Great tonal range although the newspaper comes out light. Strong content, probably occupational in nature. VISIT OUR WEBSITE by clicking on the ME icon and then clicking on ‘Greg French Early Photography Website.’
