Description
COLORED TALBOTYPE OF A CHILD BY JAMES W. WILLIAMS. 7 x 5 ½ - inch oval print in an ornate wood frame with gilded details. The child wears a checkered jacket. His hat rests on the matching cloak on the table.

Williams' original label, the size of the print, is still behind the print. It is quoted in Hanlon's book, p. 176. It advertises Talbotypes taken from daguerreotypes, and states some of the advantages of Talbotypes over Daguerreotypes. There is also a smaller, later paper label with McClees and Germon's address in pen. This Talbotype may have been made from a daguerreotype by that other firm, although Hanlon shows that McClees and Germon themselves also made Talbotypes from daguerreotypes.
Condition
The print is in fine condition, with only a slight break at the very bottom. [D3+] The frame is excellent with no damage. [4] Rare to find an attractive subject in this condition with the original frame and label
