NO AUTHOR - Tin Type of Young Girl

Title: Tin Type of Young Girl
Description: New York: Unknown, c1896. First Edition; First Impression. Ephemera. Tin type of young girl in period clothing ( late 1800's) She has hand resting on wooden plant stand. A great representation of period dress, hair style, and stoic pose. The tintype was developed in 1853 using a similar technique to the ambrotype. Called a collodion process, this technique requires the photographic material to be coated, exposed, and developed on site. This is not a book. The tintype image, however, was mounted against a thin sheet of black-enameled (or japanned) iron instead of glass. Unlike earlier photographs, a tintype is unbreakable.Interestingly, the term tintype is a misnomer. Because the iron they were mounted on was so thin, many assumed it must be tin, and the name stuck.The entire tintype process was quick and cheap. Within a few minutes, the customer could take an image home with him at the cost of a penny or less at first ; Photograph; ; 64mo 3" - 4" tall; 17 pages. Very Good with No dust jacket as issued .
