Broadsides extracted from the book structure Being a True Account and Rendering of Professor Myerhoffer's Apocryphal Entomological Expedition: 1895 Inspired by a winter spent in a used bookstore in Henniker, NH curled up by the wood stove with a cat, browsing through old botany and entomology books, reading about strait-laced Victorians seeking the source of all things. A world where all mountains could be climbed, all frontiers breached and one could still return home; a fascinating combination of confidence and naivete. The broadsides claim to have been found in Boston's Peabody Museum, one of my favorite childhood haunts, during their massive renovation in the '80s, the contents a collection of poetic musings and true facts.
