Look at this beauty! I wish things like this would come up for auction every day! This Lewis-Style whole plate Daguerreotype camera was made in 1857, but has a couple of modifications such as the 3 Waterhouse-type aperture plates which date from around 1860. Unsurprisingly a camera of this nature is going to be hugely sought after so Cowan's have estimated the value to be between $8,000-$12,000. But if they're looking for a good home, I'll gladly oblige. Auction takes place 13th of June!
