Cabinet Photograph of Helena Petrova Blavatsky. H. P. Blavatsky.

Cabinet Photograph of Helena Petrova Blavatsky

np: nd. 4 1/8 x 6 9/16" cabinet card (image size 3 7/8 x 5 1/2"), silver gelatin print mounted on a bevelled card.

A striking portrait of Madame Blavatsky. Though there is no photographer information or date, this appears to be similar to other images taken during the 1884 sitting of images taken by, or for Laura Holloway - it is very similar to the image printed in Vol. VI of her Collected Writings which was taken in that session, though appears to be very slightly different to this cataloguer's eye.

Mount a bit bowed, with a small abrasion to verso; print heavily oxidized at margins. Very good. Item #29558
