|My Studio Neighbors|
|William Hamilton Gibson (18501896)|
|My Studio Neighbors, a volume of sketches, by William Hamilton Gibson. Illustrated by the author (1898). The titles of these sketches are: A Familiar Guest, The Cuckoos and the Outwitted Cow-bird, Door-Step Neighbors, A Queer Little Family on the Bittersweet, The Welcomes of the Flowers, A Honey-Dew Picnic, A Few Native Orchids and their Insect Sponsors, The Milkweed. Nobody since Thoreau has brought a more exact and clear observation to the study of familiar animal and plant life than the author of these sketches, and even Thoreau did not always see objects with the revealing eye of the artist. Mr. Gibson has the sharp eye and fine ear of the prince in the fairy-tale; and his word pictures are as vivid as the beautiful work of his pencil. To read him is to meet the creatures he describes, on terms of friendship.|| 1|
