Lewis Cass Unknown

Hand engraving after a daguerreotype from: Portraits of United States Senators. Claremont, N. H.: Tracy, Kenney & Co., 1856. The work of a provincial engraver reluctant to give up his personal style but unable to resist the blandishments of a new reality. "The engravings which are here given, have been made by the first artists from daguerreo­types taken from life, and, as portraits, are unusually correct." Wagstaff An Exhibition on Photographic Reproduction Processes from The Collection of Samuel J. Wagstaff, Jr. at the Grolier Club. 1983
