In specimens of Daguerreotype, a large collection was displayed, as well as of specimens of Ambrotype, by Vance, of San Francisco. The latter are the largest they have ever seen, some of them approaching to a life size, and very remarkable for clearness and expression. They award, therefore, the framed diploma to this artist. [P. 47.] Best specimens of Daguerreotype, framed diploma; R.H. Vance. [P. 51; see entry 02720009 for other work noted in this commentary.]
