About this Item

1 p. 2 1/2" x 4 3/16". A carte de visite of the distinguished poet, author, physician, educator and inventor, Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894), the father of the Supreme Court Jurist. Holmes coined the word anaesthesia, saved the U.S.S. Constitution through his poem "Old Ironsides", invented the stereoscope and was Dean of Harvard Medical School. He entertained Charles Dickens on the latter's visits to America and testified at the trial of Professor John White Webster for the murder of Dr. George Parkman, which took place at Harvard Medical School while Holmes was Dean. An undated photograph, but Warren's was active by the 1860's and there is a photo from 1867 of Edward Jackson Holmes by Warren at Harvard. Very Good +. Bookseller Inventory # 10372
