From the University of California, Mark Twain Papers, The Bancroft Library, Berkeley, in full, ?Dear Bro ?" All right. I enclose the $82. I am getting close run for money, as my income does not begin again until the middle of August [Orion?s letter requesting a loan has not been found. Clemens expected his income from the ?Gilded Age? play to resume at the start of the new season, in mid-August.] One item in your account strikes me curiously ?" ?pew rent.? You might as well borrow money to sport diamonds with. I am willing to lend you money to procure the needs of life, but not to procure to so useless a luxury as a church pew. It would much better become a man to remain away from church than borrow money to hire a pew with. The principle of this thing is what I am complaining of ?" not the amount of money. All hands well. We are expecting to leave for Newport on Saturday. My love to Mollie & thank her for her interesting letter, which I purpose answering soon. Yr Bro Sam.?On pages 323-324 of Volume 2 of ?Mark Twain?s Autobiography,? edited by Albert Bigelow Paine, published after Clemens? death as he had stipulated, Mark Twain refers to his brother?s request for $82: ?As I say, he always sent a detailed statement of the month?s profit and loss on the chickens ?" at least the month?s loss on the chickens ?" and this detailed statement included the various items of expense ?" corn for the chickens, a bonnet for the wife, boots for himself, and so on; even car fares, and the weekly contribution of ten cents to help out the missionaries who were trying to damn the Chinese after a plan not satisfactory to those people. But at last when among those details I found twenty-five dollars for pew rent I struck. I told him to change his religion and sell the pew.?"

        Drepanoris Bruijnii (Bruijn's Bird of Paradise)

      London 1875 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became and expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While in Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented “Birds of Asia”. “The Birds of New Guinea” was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the “The Birds of New Guinea”, and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's “Birds of Paradise” (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the “The Birds of New Guinea”, which, like the “Birds of Asia”, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Drepanoris Bruijnii, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. These birds, commonly called Bruijn's Birds of Paradise, are expertly hand-colored in shades of brown with blue accenting around their eyes. This dynamic lithograph shows the two birds perched on a branch, one with a berry in its beak. The precise lines detail and define each feather from head to tail feather and give them dimension. The patterns of their plumage are also well defined and the positioning of their bodies allows for total appreciation of these characteristics. The branch they rest on is well colored with detailed leaves, adding vibrant shades to the print.

Nous lui devons sans nul doute la meilleure vue, la plus claire, la plus variée, la plus étendue de cette partie de l'Histoire. Son journal est écrit non seulement par année ou par mois, mais presque jour par jour, de 1574 jusque peu avant sa mort. Son journal est précédé d'une présentation dans laquelle l'auteur dénomme ses >, le >. Il compare ces/ses mémoires avec les ''Essais'' de Michel de Montaigne, de façon erronée car son oeuvre est bien plus celle d'un chroniqueur méticuleux et tatillon des événements petits et grands de son époque que celle d'un moraliste analysant les humains et lui-même. Audiencier à la Chancellerie, il était donc aux premières loges pour satisfaire une curiosité inlassable et pratiquement jamais assouvie. 0.0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Circus Pallidus, Sykes (Pallid Harrier)

      London 1875 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, “The Birds of Europe” was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of “The Birds of Europe” are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. This hand-colored lithograph, Circus Pallidus, measures 21.5” x 14.75” and is in excellent condition. Commonly called the Pallid Harrier, this migratory bird of prey is expertly hand-colored and extremely well detailed. This male is colored in a brilliant white with black specks on its underbelly, and gray wings with black wingtips. The precise lines define and detail each feather and wing and add definition to the body.
