This photographic image was used as a frontispiece in Pound's Pavannes and Divisons (Knopf, 1918). An iconic image. Pound is shown in profile, seated in a barely visible Victorian chair, wearing a heavy dark great coat (which is draped around the legs of the chair), Pound's face and hands highly visible in white light against the dark background, with nice tonal contrast.
