Carte-de-visite photograph. A close-up head-and-shoulders view of Cook, with her shoulders square and her head slightly turned to look off towards her right. Her dark curls spill from her lacy white bonnet and she is wearing a dark dress and a somewhat reserved facial expression. The verso bears the decorative printed identification: "John Watkins Photographer to the Queen The Price of Wales & The Ex Royal Family of France 34, Parliament Street, London, S.W." and an abbreviated form of this attribution is repeated on the mount beneath the image. Lightly spotted and with some minor oxidation, but a dark, attractive image overall.

Eliza Cook (1817-1889) English poet and journal editor. (Item ID: 15717)
