A lovely engraving by British engraver and publisher, Samuel Hollyer (17917-1883). Longfellow is shown sitting in his library in Cambridge, apparently working on a poem on the table, piled with books and manuscripts. Portraits hang on the wall and other details of his library are wonderfully depicted.
