Brief Description: Carte de visite (albumen print mounted on card) of J. B. Reade, head and shoulders, half profile looking right, in clerical collar; vignetted. It is probably one of the cartes de visite of Reade missing from the Royal Microscopical Society album of 1867 (11837). Companion of the slightly earlier 12034. He looks more similar in age and pose to his RMS presidential photograph (12036), presumably taken in 1869. Reade was a founder member of the RMS in 1839 and its President at the time of his death in 1870.
Primary Inscriptions: Printed on front: 'Dr. Wallich, Trevor House. 2, Warwick Gardens. Kensington.'; on back similar. Pencil identifying inscription and 'duplicate' on back.
