Alfred Russel Wallace : Alfred Wallace : A. R. Wallace :
Russel Wallace : Alfred Russell Wallace (sic)
Following is a list of Wallace images (mostly
photo-portraits) published during his own time (and thus now post-copyright)
that I have come across. Please note that I have not checked for multiple
printings of the same photo. Also note that some of these photos may
have been printed as left-to-right reversals. The Wallace images I have
actually reproduced at this site come from: the book Darwinism,
at age 66 ("Home" screen); the book My Life, at ages 25, 55
and 80 (the first, third and fourth alternate images to the "Home" screen);
James Marchant, Alfred Russel Wallace: Letters and Reminiscences (1916),
in 1862, 1912 and 1913 (the second, eighth and ninth alternate
images to the "Home" screen); C. W. Saleeby, The Cycle
of Life According to Modern Science (1904), opp. p. 142--perhaps
the reprint of an image on p. 937 of the Harper's New
Monthly Magazine issue of November 1897 (the fifth alternate
image to the "Home" screen);
John Rothenstein, The
Portrait Drawings of William Rothenstein 1889-1925 (1926), pl. XLII
(the sixth alternate image to the "Home" screen); a Wallace
interview published in the 20 January 1909 issue of The Woman Worker (the
seventh alternate image to the "Home" screen); the book My
Life, at age
30 (the "Wallace Writings" screen); and the book My Life, at
age 46 (the "Wallace Interviews" screen). Many of the books I list in
the "Writings on Wallace" section also contain photographs of Wallace,
including some that are not among the ones itemized below.
Doing an image search on Google.com is a good
way quickly to come up with a lot of actual images of Wallace, though
one cannot find electronic versions of some of the ones referred to below
George Beccaloni has made available
a considerable number of other Wallace images at
