He danc'd like a monkey, his pockets well cram'd ... [graphic].

Description: "Vestris fils, as in BMSat 5905, on the same stage, is dancing in a similar pose, poised on his right toe, his back to the audience, looking over his left shoulder smiling. In his right hand is his hat, held out as before but full of notes or bills, inconspicuously inscribed "gui, £1100", and "£20,000". In his left hand he holds out a netted purse to which is attached a label inscribed "English Guineas". In place of the goose of BMSat 5897 in each lower angle of the square is an ape dressed as a dancer and with his hat held out, cf. BMSat 5903; one (left) matches the pose of Vestris in BMSat 5905, the other (right) his pose in this design."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state of the same composition.

Keeping a nature journal : discover a whole new way of seeing the world around you / Clare Walker Leslie & Charles E. Roth.

Nature.
Author: Leslie, Clare Walker.
Description: From the day it was released in 2000, Keeping a Nature Journal has struck a profound chord among professional, casual, and occasional naturalists of all ages. In response to this groundswell of enthusiasm, we have revised Keeping A Nature Journal, updated the interior design, and created a new cover. Undoubtedly the most exciting new element in this second edition is a portfolio of 32 illustrated pages from Clare Walker Leslie's most recent journals, reproduced in full color. What makes Keeping A Nature Journalso popular? It is inspiring and easy to use. Clare and co-author Charles Chuck E. Roth offer simple techniques to give first-time journal-keepers the confidence to go outside, observe the natural world, and sketch and write about what they see. At the same time, they motivate long-time journal-keepers to hone their powers of observation as they immerse themselves in the mysteries of the natural world. Clare and Chuck stress that the journal is a personal record of daily experience and the world around us. Nature's beauty can be observed everywhere, whether in the city, suburbs, or country.
