It is difficult to review a book that preceded others on the same subject. Perhaps books should always be reviewed in the order of their publication date, but that is not always possible? “The Daguerreotype in America” preceded “The American Daguerreotype” by Floyd and Marion Rinhart, which was published twenty years later (although only five years after the revised third edition by Newhall in 1976). The Rinhart’s readily point out that they have “built upon the heritage left by Robert Taft’s "Photography and the America Scene" (1938) and Beaumont Newhall’s excellent history, "The Daguerreotype in America" (1961).”

This is the review of the third edition that “has been expanded by the addition of sixteen more pages of plates; corrections and minor revisions in the text; and the Bibliography has been brought up to date to include reprints of obscure and long out of print manuals, and microfilms of periodicals.” So the body of the third edition is substantially the same as the first edition, and that is what is being reviewed.

The book is divided into four parts; An Art and An Industry, in which Newhall takes the mostly accepted chronological view of history; Plates, in which are included major examples of the daguerreotype “art” showing that the daguerreotype was principally used to record people, places, and occasionally things; A Technique and a Craft, in which is explained “The American Process;” and Biographies and Notes.
Newhall’s account of the history and process is easily read, making for a satisfying introduction to the daguerreotype in America, but it lacks some of the detail and completeness of Rinhart’s later book.

If there is a fault in Newhall’s book, it is in the scarcity of illustrations of apparatus, although there are a small number of engravings of studios and galleries. However, the selection of plates cannot be faulted.

Although the Rinhart’s book is more complete, Newhall’s book nonetheless should be on any student’s or researcher’s reading list on the history of photography.
