For our first #favoritethingsfriday post, we’d like to highlight an item from the collection that is a personal favorite of our wonderful Administrative and Reference Specialist, Eric Esau. As Eric said when asked about his favorite item, “ Moby Dick, by Herman Melville is a superb example from the Golden Age of English fine bookbinding. The rich navy morocco leather is handsome, the gold tooling of a square rigger ship on the cover is detailed and evocative. But! There’s a surprise – a fore edge painting (see second photo, above). This is a lost art, and few are even aware of it anymore. I used to make good use of this volume when I did presentations for visitors, and the fore edge painting never failed to produce audible gasps of surprise and delight from viewers. To see Eric’s “favorite” item from our collections for yourself, request “Melville PS2384M62 1923c” the next time you visit Rauner Library. ⁠⠀ #favoritethingsfriday #dartmouthcollege #dartmouth #dartmouthlibrary #raunerlibrary #rauner #specialcollections #rarebooks #library #literature #mobydick #history #bookbinding #bookart

For our first #workingwednesday post of June, we present a collection of colorful 18th-century prints depicting various street vendors including food vendors, print sellers, the laundress, parasol seller, baker, and a citrus saleswoman. The collection of 14 “finely engraved and coloured” prints was sold for six pounds at the time of its original printing and contains many other entertaining portraits including those of a straw hat seller, mattress maker, the postman, etc.. To see additional artistic depictions of 18th-century salespersons and other urban occupations, ask for “Occupations 20” the next time you visit Rauner Special Collections Library. #workingwednesday #dartmouthcollege #dartmouthlibrary #dartmouth #raunerlibrary #rauner #specialcollections #rarebooks #art #history #working #occupations #jobs #illustration #drawing #cooks #fruits #clocks #sales #streetvendors #18thcentury #rl_occupations

For our first #morebirdsmonday post of June, we present the beautiful American Advocet (Recurvirostra americana) painted on Plate 318 of Audubon’s “The Birds of America” which is on public display in our Reading Room. As their scientific name suggests, these birds are famous for their upcurved bills, which aid them in sifting small food items from just below the water’s surface as they wade in the water with their stilt-like legs. Advocets typically ⁠⠀ nest in loose colonies, and as Audubon discovered when he tried to observe one of these birds on their nest, if predators approach a colony on foot, several adults may perform a distraction display nearby, running about in a crouch with both wings spread. As Audubon recounts, “Until that day I was not aware that gregarious birds, on emitting cries of alarm, after having been scared from their nest, could induce other incubating individuals to leave their eggs also, and join in attempting to save the colony. But so it was with the Advosets…” To see our beautiful copy of “The Birds of America” for yourself, stop by our Reading Room the next time Rauner Library is open! #morebirdsmonday #dartmouthcollege #dartmouthlibrary #raunerlibrary #rauner #birds #birdwatching #americanadvocet #waterbirds #art #wildlifeart #wildlife #naturalhistory #audubon

Dartmouth Library wants your pet photos…⁣ ⁣ Rachel Ackerman ’22 (@rachelackerman) sent us these lovely photos of Sasha, the 10-year-old goldendoodle who still thinks she’s a puppy.

Dartmouth Library wants your pet photos…⁣ ⁣ Luis Cusihuallpa Solorzano ’24 sent us these great shots of his six-year-old dog Hulk from their home in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Cusco, Peru!⁣ ⁣ Here’s what Luis had to say about his furry friend, “I got Hulk as a lovely birthday gift from my godmother after returning home from the 2014 FIFA World Cup. I named him Hulk because it’s the nickname of the Brazilian footballer Givanildo Vieira de Souza (@hulk_brazil12), and guess what? He loves to play outside with a Brazuca, the official match ball of that World Cup, albeit his special toy is almost mangled! During these trying times, playing soccer (well, technically handball) with him has been an incredible way to increase my physical activity and stay healthy. I am glad to have him by my side through this lockdown! I am beyond thankful and excited to hopefully go to Dartmouth in the fall and especially study at the beautiful libraries!⁣ ⁣ If you’d like to give your animal study buddies some well-deserved credit for everything they’re doing to keep your spirits up during this difficult time, we’d love if you’d send us a recent photo of them to tom.c.e.remp@dartmouth.edu (or DM us), along with something that’s gone really well during the term.

Dartmouth Library wants your pet photos and videos... ⁣ Here’s something to make your day! Meet Ransome, the talking four-year-old parrot belonging to Julia King ’23 (@jules2018).

Dartmouth Library wants your pet photos…⁣ ⁣ Leeza Petrov ’22 (@leezapetrov) would like us to meet Fluffy and Basil. They are brothers and a little over a year old.

They’re the best part about coming home and she’s loved to be able to watch them grow up and to play with them during study breaks.⁣ ⁣ Here's what Leeza said when we asked how the term is going, “The term is going well, online classes are definitely a challenge but I’ve been zooming/FaceTiming my friends a lot which has been helpful. My professors are for the most part very accommodating of the circumstances but what I miss most is interacting with people face to face!

Ever seen a dog do this?⁣ ⁣ Bryanna Entwistle ’23 sent us this awesome video of her golden retriever Aspen, who has a special talent of climbing out of pools via ladders and who just started going on runs! Bryanna’s been quarantining in Singapore where she grew up, and is finding the time difference pretty tough, with classes from 10pm-2am.

Happy Friday: If this isn’t the best thing you’ve ever seen, we don’t know what is… ⁣ ⁣ Meet Cayenne the pug, belonging to Susan Achenbach, Museum Preparator at @hoodmuseum. Cayenne was found six years ago in the woods at a farm in Virginia. The best guess is that she’s now 9 years old. She had clearly been there for some time before she was found, all skin and bones and covered with ticks. Susan had planned to name her Violet, but she is one spicy lady. Susan started Cayenne in agility in 2015 and she is a star! “When she runs she makes little growling noises like a kid playing with trucks…and it makes me happy to know she loves doing agility. Her favorite treat is cheese and she will run like the wind for some cheddar. You can see the joy on her face in the pictures.”⁣ ⁣ Susan works directly with the art at the Hood Museum and misses being in the building to care for and work with all the fabulous pieces the museum has in its collection. “The work I do includes matting and framing the works on paper so I get very close to the artworks and am very fond of them. That connection makes me love my job and the work we all do their as a team. I work with wonderful people and look forward to all of us being back there again.”⁣ ⁣ Dartmouth Library wants your pet photos…⁣ If you’d like to give your animal study buddies some well-deserved credit for everything they’re doing to keep your spirits up during this difficult time, we’d love if you’d send us a recent photo of them to tom.c.e.remp@dartmouth.edu (or DM us), along with something that’s gone really well during the term.

For our final #formerfriday post of May highlighting now-extinct North American birds painted by John James Audubon, we present the boisterous Heath Hen (Tympanuchus cupido cupido), or as Audubon called it, the Pinnated Grouse. John James Audubon's first drawing sold for commercial purposes depicted a Heath Hen on a $3 New Jersey banknote from 1824. Today, both the Heath Hen, a small grouse, and the banknote, a $3 bill, are extinct. Heath hens once ranged across scrubby coastal heath barrens from Maine to Virginia. Intensive hunting, coastal settlement, and fire suppression caused the population to plummet, and by 1870, heath hens had vanished from the mainland US and only remained on Martha’s Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts. As heath hen populations further dwindled, Martha’s Vineyard officials banned hunting in 1906, two years later creating a 600-acre preserve for the birds. Unfortunately, it was too little, too late. The tiny remaining population was highly vulnerable to disruption. Add to that a lack of understanding of prairie grouse ecology—most notably of fire’s role in maintaining viable habitat—and the heath hen’s demise was sealed. As Audubon writes in his Ornithological Biography, “When I first removed to Kentucky, the Pinnated Grouse were so abundant...Such an account may appear strange to you, reader; but what will you think when I tell you, that, in that same country, where, twenty-five years ago (Heath Hens) could not have been sold at more than one cent apiece, scarcely one is now to be found?” The last Heath Hen was seen in 1932. The failed attempt to save heath hens from extinction, stands as a valuable lesson about not waiting until a species hangs on the brink of extinction to begin conservation efforts. #formerfriday #extinct #extinction #extinctspecies #environment #heathhen #birds #birdwatching #audubon #art #wildlife #wildlifepainting #raunerlibrary #rarebooks #specialcollections #dartmouthlibrary #dartmouthcollege #rl_rare⁠⠀

Jem is a very good boy but sadly illiterate. ⁣ ⁣ Here’s what Jen had to say about how the term has gone so far: “My first spring term is obviously not how I imagined it but I am enjoying having more free time and have been learning guitar, biking around Atlanta, and exploring the city. Right about now, I'm really missing the nature of the Upper Valley– the O farm, swimming at the river, hiking around campus, and lying out on the green.”⁣ ⁣ If you’d like to give your animal study buddies some well-deserved credit for everything they’re doing to keep your spirits up during this difficult time, we’d love if you’d send us a recent photo of them to tom.c.e.remp@dartmouth.edu (or DM us), along with something that’s gone really well during the term.
