 6th plate daguerreotype

The daguerreotype is named after the French artist and chemist Louis Daguerre, who announced its perfection in 1839 after years of research and collaboration with Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, the inventor of photography. Instead of Daguerre obtaining a French patent, the French government provided a pension for him and announced on August 19, 1839 the invention as a gift "Free to the World."
