Some letters were also written from #montreal (“le Mont-Real”)

Quilting is a surface design technique that involves stitching patterns through multiple layers of fabric to hold them together. This was acquired by Charles "Charley" Jervis Langdon while he was traveling abroad with Mark Twain in 1867. Charley is a featured character in Twain's "Innocents Abroad." #marktwain #samuelclemens #charleylangdon #innocentsabroad #quilt #19thcenturytravel #surfacedesign #jacket #fashion #fashion history #quilting #cornell #cornellcostumecollection #design #white #pattern #humanecology #cornelluniversity #iamhumec

"London den 2 Febr. 1895
Älskade Helene,
Märkwärdigt nog war öfwerresan rätt wacker och straxt då jag ankom hit telegraferade jag dig om min ankomst - innan jag gick på mitt rum."
. . . (Alfred Jacobsson till Helene Jacobsson)

I forgot to post this at the beginning of the month so I guess it's technically Book 50 but it's going up as Book 55. 
Maria Graham led a most extraordinary life. She was able to follow her husband all around the world and luckily for us she wrote about it. Sadly at the beginning of this volume she loses her husband to an unmentioned malady. However she defies what was expected of her and stays on in Chile and explores the continent with her friends - old and new. And thanks to her being a woman we get a glimpse into the daily life of women and their families in Chile at the time, something we likely wouldn't have seen had she been a man. 
Also, Forgotten Books are a publishing company who take undeservedly forgotten manuscripts and writings and print them in their originally published style. Pretty damn awesome of them, hey? 
3.5* for a life well lived.
