Excerpt from Index to the Journal of the Franklin Institute (Including the Franklin Journal) For the One Hundred and Twenty Volumes From 1826 to 1885: Arranged According to Subjects and Authors In preparing an index to a work of 120 volumes embracing a record of the progress of the sciences and the arts, during a period of sixty years, in which many theories have been pre sented, modified, or discarded, and many new arts created, and in which many words have undergone changes in signification, numerous difficulties presented themselves. A perfect index under the circumstances would imply a complete knowledge of all the heterogeneous materials in the work, and of the history of the progress of the sciences and the arts during the period of its publication. In editing the work for publication it became obvious that a too rigorous adherence to the phraseology of titles on the part of the compiler greatly multiplied the difficulties, and would impair the usefulness of the work. It was, therefore, found necessary to rewrite much of it so as to adapt it better to the user's point of view.

The Early American Daguerreotype in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

The American daguerreotype as something completely new: a mechanical invention that produced an image, a hybrid of fine art and science and technology. The daguerreotype, invented in France, came to America in 1839. By 1851, this early photographic method had been improved by American daguerreotypists to such a degree that it was often referred to as “the American process.” The daguerreotype—now perhaps mostly associated with stiffly posed portraits of serious-visaged nineteenth-century personages—was an extremely detailed photographic image, produced though a complicated process involving a copper plate, light-sensitive chemicals, and mercury fumes. It was, as Sarah Kate Gillespie shows in this generously illustrated history, something wholly and remarkably new: a product of science and innovative technology that resulted in a visual object. It was a hybrid, with roots in both fine art and science, and it interacted in reciprocally formative ways with fine art, science, and technology. Gillespie maps the evolution of the daguerreotype, as medium and as profession, from its introduction to the ascendancy of the “American process,” tracing its relationship to other fields and the professionalization of those fields. She does so by recounting the activities of a series of American daguerreotypists, including fine artists, scientists, and mechanical tinkerers. She describes, for example, experiments undertaken by Samuel F. B. Morse as he made the transition from artist to inventor; how artists made use of the daguerreotype, both borrowing conventions from fine art and establishing new ones for a new medium; the use of the daguerreotype in various sciences, particularly astronomy; and technological innovators who drew on their work in the mechanical arts. By the 1860s, the daguerreotype had been supplanted by newer technologies. Its rise (and fall) represents an early instance of the ever-constant stream of emerging visual technologies.
