Carte-de-visite cdv photo of CHARLES KINGSLEY clergyman author Westward, Ho:
(KINGSLEY, CHARLES). Carte-de-visite photograph. An unusual outdoor setting, showing Kingsley seated on a low chair on a lawn beside two open doors of a building which is covered in ivy. A writing desk or chest of drawers is just visible through the doorway, indicating that the building is perhaps an office or a studio. Kingsley sits with his legs apart, looking off towards the left-hand side of the image, and his hands, in his lap, hold a walking stick. No photographer's information. Mount perhaps a trifle toned; fine.
Charles Kingsley (1819-1875); English novelist, clergyman, author of The Water-Babies and Westward, Ho!. Additional information or images provided upon request. Authenticity guaranteed. Seller is a member of PADA (Professional Autograph Dealers Association), ABAA (Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America Inc.) and ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers).
