It’s Mattioli Monday in Archives and Special Collections! This is one of my favorite pages of Mount Holyoke’s 1565 edition because at some point these chickens inspired a reader to sketch his/her own chicken in the margin. (And don’t miss those itty bitty baby chicks at the bottom of the page.) -Leslie

Queer Pets at Marcy’s

1880

Written by Olive Thorne Miller

Illustrated by J.C. Beard

 

Harriet Mann Miller wrote this influential book under her pseudonym “Olive Thorne” in 1880.  Most of her writing centered on birds and their behavior, but this is one of her fictitious children’s books.  It is full of lovely illustrations as it chronicles Marcy and her animal adventures.

 

This is a treasure from the Mount Holyoke College Archives and Special Collections.  See it live in the reading room treasure case, visit us in the cellar of Dwight, or find us online to find out more!
