The Society's Quarterly is published four times a year and features over twenty-four pages of 19th-century images, articles of interest, Society and Photography news, and reviews of recent publications and exhibits. Classified and display advertisements are available, as well as research inquiries for Society members.
The Daguerreian Society Quarterly has been published in PDF format since 2016, but printed copies can be purchased at an additional charge with membership dues. An archive of Quarterly and earlier Newsletter issues back to 2007 are available to logged-in Society members under the Member Services link of the web site.
For a sample of a recent article, “There is no Escape from Death and Taxes” by Pamela C. Powell, click here.
As a sample of the PDF file you will receive, we offer the Jan.-March 2016 Quarterly here.
Contributing to The Daguerreian Society Quarterly
If you have an idea for a short article (up to four-five pages in length) for the Quarterly, the Publications Committee would be happy to review it for possible publication in the Quarterly, or, if more appropriate, in The Daguerreian Annual. Article inquiries can be sent or emailed to our offices.
Remember that the Society is interested in quality articles on all areas of 19th-century photography, not just daguerreotypes. Hard copy or high quality jpegs (300 dpi) of original images should accompany any article. They should be of sufficient size to be run in actual size in the publication.
If you have a research query we would be happy to publish it in our next Quarterly (there is no charge). Research queries can be sent or emailed to our offices. A paragraph or two is fine and, if you wish, a small illustration can be included. Hard copy or high quality jpegs (300 dpi) are acceptable. We would hope that one of our members worldwide may be able to provide you with images or information to assist in your research.
