"New Year's Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual." ~Mark Twain

observer of Man, a favorite satirist, Mark Twain reappears in the first of a three volume autobiography-



  1. I love this Rex Whistler book...the illustrations inside are super, ALL my nieces and nephews are continually frightened and delighted by these ingenious follies. It may be a thin book, but it holds MUCH MORE than the usual artbooks of today.

    Your library must be major!!

  2. I've been wanting to read that new Twain book.

  3. I've never seen this book...thanks for the introduction...K

  4. The Swan, It produced much amusement here. It still fascinates me.

    Donna-yes, Me too.

    Kathy- I will add some more images through the year.

    DED- Rex Whistler's illustrations are gifts-would that he had lived to old age-the bounty we would have received.
