Bruce Coville | AuthorA New Daguerreotype of Emily Dickinson? | Dickinson Electronic ArchivesUPDATE: On September 4, 2013, the Collector who discovered it deposited the 1859 daguerreotype at Amherst College Special Collections. He received no money for doing so, but signed a deposit agreement, and also agreed that the daguerreotype could and should undergo further testing. Anyone who wishes to see the daguerreotype should contact Amherst College Special Collections directly at or at (413) 542-2299. A cultural palimpsest of our emotions, desires, opinions, and literary histories, the image of a teenage 'Emily Dickinson' has presided over this international icon. The Dickinson Electronic Archives 2 is a scholarly environment showcasing the possibility of interdisciplinary and collaborative research and exploring the potential of the digital environment to reveal new interpretive material, cultural, historical, and theoretical contexts.
