“Quincy Adams was the first American president to be photographed,” Heritage Director of Americana Auctions Tom Slater said, “and this newly-discovered example is one of the earliest known presidential photographs.

The sixth-plate daguerreotype was taken at the Washington, D.C. Studio of John Plumbe Feb. 14, 1846, according to Adams’ diary entry. The location of this image was unknown until it was recently discovered in an antiques market in Paris.

Plumbe was one of the most prominent photographers of the day, and apparently had complete approval from Adams, who sat for him on four different occasions.
This image is housed in a case stamped on the brass mat with Plumbe’s name and lined with paper reading “Manufactured at the Plumbe National Daguerrian Depot/New York.” The image is accompanied by a detailed letter of authentication by William F. Stapp, who served as the Curator of Photographs at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery from 1976-91.
