Carte-de-visite photograph. A black-and-white 3/4-length image of Tupper standing before a lecturn or desk, with his right hand holding an open volume. In a long dark coat, with his left hand down at his side. Copyright imprint (partially trimmed away) of Southwell Brothers [16 & 22 Baker Street, London] beneath the image and repeated in full on the reverse. A few small spots, but unusually fine.

Martin Farquhar Tupper (1810-1889); English poet. In his day, Tupper's international celebrity rested chiefly on his Proverbial Philosophy, which, by the mid-1840s, had achieved the status of a runaway best-seller in the United States. (Item ID: 12654)
