"The Chrystallotype, or Crystalotype, an old name for photographic transparencies upon glass, either Lantern Slides or larger plates for window decoration, patented by John Whipple of Boston in 1854, despite the fact that they were produced by the Albumen On Glass Process invented earlier." Nadeau, Luis. ENCYCLOPEDIA OF PRINTING, PHOTOGRAPHIC, AND PHOTOMECHANICAL PROCESSES. Atelier Luis Nadeau: New Brunswick, Canada, 1994. p. 79. In this broadside, John M. Donahoe has applied the process for making transparencies from color prints.

OCLC locates a single copy at the American Antiquarian Society - their copy measures 20 x 13 cm; the 9 in the date of 1859 is clearly printed, and the imprint bears the initial L before Scofield Leavitt.
