Rare Original Photograph of O'Neill as a boy, unsigned, oblong 8vo, with full signature on a small 12mo visiting card
The image shows the future playwright in full length profile, sitting on a rock, with pad and pencil as if he is about to sketch or write. He sits near a lake with a house visible at the lake's edge. The photo has been cropped at the top. On verso, docketed in pencil, are notations for further cutting of the image to remove unwanted margins from the central focus of a charming portrait of O'Neill as a boy. The docketing reads, "Eugene O'Neill 25 years ago." The photographer's stamp shows upside down at the top edge indicating to whom credit should be given when reproductions would be made. The photographer is Nickolas Muray (1892- 1965) who had made other images of O'Neill as an adult. On the black bordered visiting card, O?Neill has crossed out his printed name and written his full name below
