Description

Print of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his Library at the Craigie House in Cambridge, by Samuel Hollyer.

Hollyer sent Longfellow an artist's proof in November 1881. "You may perhaps remember seeing the sketch of it some two years ago when I last saw you at Cambridge." He then asked Longfellow for an endorsement, which was not forthcoming.
