Lot 589: ALS in French, signed "Daguerre," one page, 5 x 8, no date. Letter to Mr. Damptain, in full (translated): "In case you can make available the funds corresponding to this document you will oblige me greatly by giving them to the bearer." Also addressed on the reverse of the second integral page in Daguerre's hand. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, scattered staining and soiling (near but not affecting the signature), and brushing to ink at the bottom. Handwritten material from this photographic pioneer is exceptionally rare; this is only the second signed Daguerre item we have offered. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 458 Wednesday, 12th August 2015 Estimate: $3000-4000
