Beasts and Birds in Pictures and Words was published in 1891 by McLaughlin Bros. In it you will find over 100 illustrations in the genre of wood engravings created by several German engravers, including brothers Friedrich and August Specht, along with descriptions of as least as many land and sea animals, birds and reptiles. A copy of this book, despite the wear from use over the years, is not only a fascinating browse for the animal afficionado and book collector, but would look well on a coffee table and most likely become a topic of conversation. A copy of Beasts and Birds in Pictures and Words is currently offered for purchased at QualityMusicandBooks.com.

TheHillsOfHome.pdf


This great western image is from the cover of a piece of 1925 vintage sheet music that was in very poor condition.  The sheet music, The Hills of Home was sung in dramatic fashion by noted film tenor, Mario Lanza, and may be heard on YouTube.com.


The text for The Hills of Home was written by Floride Isabella Lee Calhoun, and is connected in some manner to the Clemson family from which originated Clemson University.  It was set to music by Oscar Julius Fox, a musician who was born, and after extensive music study worked as a musician in various capacities in Texas.


If anyone might know who is the artist for this sheet music cover art, I would appreciate the information.  This clipart image presented by Mary Katherine May of QualityMusicandBooks.com.
