excerpts

Knowing the laureate’s indisposition to any approach to publicity, it is with some surprise I see it stated that a bust of him is about to be executed by Mr. Brodie, a member of the Scottish Academy. Of this sculptor’s powers I have no personal cognizance; but another sculptor’s rendering of Tennyson–a medallion head, of admirable quality, by Thomas Woolner–is likely to appear, through the unrivalled medium of photography, as the frontispiece to the illustrated volume.
