Photographer Frederick F. Gutekunst (1831-1917) took this phototype portrait of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow within a few years of the poet's death March 24, 1882.

A lithograph that may have been made from this photo appears as the frontispiece of Vol. XI, the final volume of the Craigie Edition of The Complete Writings of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, published in 1879.

The book dates the lithograph as 1879.
