Stand up straight, breathe naturally, don't hold on too tightly, and always keep your head high. No, wait, sorry, that's a violin lesson. Well, close enough. ❤🎻
(An item awaiting cataloguing library_vic: L.E. Tiddeman's 'Love's Lessons', London, 1905)

The emerald green color swatch bookmark at work: I just acquired this 1850 English imprint from an online auction, and it appears to meet our known criteria for arsenical emerald green bindings. The color is just on the edge; it could be degraded emerald green, or it could be a chromium green. I’m looking forward to analyzing it with XRF to refine our understanding [UPDATE: analysis showed the pigment is copper acetoarsenite, or “emerald green”!] If you work with or own mid-nineteenth-century bindings bound in bright green bookcloth, you can email your postal address to reference@winterthur.org with “Emerald green bookmark” in the subject line to receive one of our project bookmarks, which are intended as a tool to aid visual identification of potentially arsenical bookcloth. #poisonbookproject #publishersbindingthursday #publishersbinding #bookhistory #bookconservation #rarebooks #victoriana #arsenic winterthurconservation ...

“The Story of our Post Office: The greatest government department in all its phases” wins today’s Dramatic Title Award.

Written by Marshall Cushing, private secretary to the US Postmaster General John Wanamaker, in 1893, this sounds like a good read for the moment, as USPS leadership is directing the “greatest government department” to be not so great for everyone. So keep Cushing’s sentiment with a smile for your letter carrier and understanding for that slow package from a small business.

All mail puns are being accepted in the comments with our stamp of approval. 😊

For #publishersbindingthursday we have ‘The universe, or, The infinitely great and the infinitely little’ by Félix Archimède Pouchet, 1800-1872. Published in 1872.
*
Pouchet was a French naturalist and a leading proponent of spontaneous generation of life from non-living materials, and as such an opponent of Louis Pasteur's germ theory. L'univers: les infiniment grands et les infiniment petits, detailed the richness of the earth’s life forms within the context of the divine universe as a whole. Pouchet was born in Rouen, France, on August 26, 1800. His father was a respected manufacturer in Rouen. In 1827, Pouchet received his M.D. in Paris, and later became the director of the Rouen Museum of Natural History.
