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!. (Item ID: 16896)
