Carte-de-visite photograph. A 3/4 length portrait of the novelist stainding, with his right hand on his hip and with his left hand grapsing the back of a chair. His pocket watch and chain are visible against his dark vest, and he is wearing a long coat which is open, and draped across his shoulders. Crested imprint on the verso of Gurney, Fifth Avenue, Cor. 16th Street, New York, along with the slogan "I Have Chained the Sun to Serve Me". Corners rounded, uniformly browned and lightly faded; some minor soiling and oxidiation. Beginning to separate (cleanly) form mount. An attractive image, despite the defects noted. (Item ID: 12476)
