Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre
French postage stamp showing Niepce, Daguerre and Arago.
Archives of Modern Conflict OR National Gallery of Canada
The illustration shows Arago standing and talking while Daguerre and the young Niepce are seated next to him. That scene took place on August 18, 1839, not January 7, 1839. Could the French Postal Service have possibly made a mistake?
This illustration was included in the lecture "The many faces of Daguerre" presented by Matt Isenburg at the Daguerreian Society Symposium (2009).
