Louis J. Bossieux was recorded on September 9, 1854 in an advertisement in The Daily Dispatch (Richmond, Virginia.) Wanted—To sell a Daguerrean Apparatus complete, with chemicals and stock. It will be sold low and on a credit of six months. Should a person purchase it ignorant of the art, they will be instructed. Apply to Louis J. Bossieux.
Many question surround this entry for Bossieux. Was he a dealer in Daguerrean equipment? Did he somehow acquire the camera? Or the probable scenario was that he a daguerreotypist selling his equipment and getting out of the business? At this point this is pure speculation on my part. There are no listing for Bossieux other photographic directories that I have checked, nor is he listed in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry.
