WALT WHITMAN (1819-1892). Whitman was a prominent American poet, journalist and essayist. He is best remembered for his masterpieces Leaves of Grass, “Song Of Myself”, “O Captain! My Captain!” and “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd”. PS. 4 ¼” x 6 ¾”. No date [circa 1872 or later]. No place. A sepia studio photograph signed “Walt Whitman born May 31 1819” in black ink. The image was taken in September 1872 by the Brooklyn photographer G. Frank Pearsall. This was most likely removed from an edition of Two Rivulets, a collection of Whitman poetry that used this image as its frontispiece. The signature is dark and bold with some light skipping. The borders are slightly irregular and there is very minor creasing noted for accuracy. The photograph is still glued down to paper from the frontispiece, which can easily be removed. A fine signed photograph of the great writer. (Inventory #: 3929)
