Date: 1891
Place: Camden
Photographer: Thomas Eakins or Samuel Murray, Philadelphia
Note: This photograph was ascribed to Eakins when it was printed in the Small, Maynard edition of Leaves (1898), but it is very similar to two other photographs, the second of which is clearly ascribed to Murray. At this point, Whitman had a wolf-skin draped across the back of his rocker in the first-floor parlor of his home, where this was taken.
Type: Glass plate negative (4 x 5 in.)
