Carte-de-visite photograph. An attractive full-length portrait of Collins standing beside an ornate carved chair. His legs are crossed at the ankle, his left arm is leaning on the chair, and he holds a book in his right hand, which hangs at his side. Double ruled gilt border and with the gilt imprint of Case & Getchell, Boston on the mount beneath the image. Decorative printed attribution reading "CARTE de VISITE by Case & Getchell Photographic Artists, 299 1/2 Washington Street, Boston." on the reverse, along with the ownership stamp of Henry Y. Porter and ink identification of "Wilkie Collins 1924-1889 English novelist" in black ball point pen. Minor soiling and faint wear to image, still fine overall, with good contrast. (Item ID: 12440)
