Carte-de-visite photograph. A portrait of Kingsley seated in an upholstered chair with white stitching. His left elbow is leaning on a table, and his right hand rests in his lap. Captioned "THE REV. CANON KINGSLEY. Registered Minshull & Hughes." beneath the image. Elaborate crested imprint on the reverse of "Minshull & Hughes, Photographers, Chester. Entered at Stationers Hall." Mount very lightly soiled, with a few stray marks. Minor oxidization and fading, else good to very good. An attractive image with strong contrast.

Charles Kingsley (1819-1875); English novelist, clergyman, author of The Water-Babies and Westward, Ho!. (Item ID: 16897)
