PD121: 1845c 1/2 Plt Occupational Daguerreotype Alfort National Veterinary School Cadet Plus His Actual Alfort Button:
1845c Near 1/2 Plt Occupational ID’d Cadet of the Renowned National Veterinary School of Alfort (France) – Plus his Original Button as Shown on the Image. Offered is a very rare one for those occupational collectors. This is, from my knowledge, the only known vetinary daguerreotype out there. It is a near half plate in a passe and measures 4 x 4.8 inches. The dag is ID’d on the back as Edouard Leclerc of Alfort. He wears his Alfort cadet uniform and proudly sports his (horse?) whip. The dag plate is in superb condition and has been archivally resealed with Filmoplast P90. The original passe glass was broken and a new paper mat added. Comes with Leclerc’s original and rare Alfort cadet button (fully stamped Alfort with makers name etc). The National Veterinary School of Alfort (École nationale vétérinaire d’Alfortdisclaimer icon) is the world’s second oldest veterinary school (the world’s oldest veterinary school is in Lyon, France) and was founded in 1766. Both the Alfort and Lyon schools were founded by Claude Bourgelat.
