English: American poet Walt Whitman. This image was made in 1887 in New York, by photographer George C. Cox. The image is said to have been Whitman's favorite from the photo-session; Cox published about seven images for Whitman, who so admired this image that he even sent a copy to the poet Tennyson in England. Whitman sold the other copies.[1]
This image is available from the United States Library of Congress's Prints and Photographs division under the digital ID ppmsca.07549.

ISBN: 0060535113. “During one brief visit to New York, for his Lincoln lecture in April 1887, Whitman made an appointment with Augustus Saint-Gaudens, sat for a portrait by the painter Dora Wheeler, a friend of the Gilders, and was photographed at the Broadway studio of George C. Cox. He liked one of Cox's portraits so much that he titled it "The Laughing Philosopher," sent an autographed copy to Tennyson, and put other copies on sale to supplement his income.”
