ARMY BIRMINGHAM
Black Country – industrialized region, name derived from its pollution-coated landscape. Extend immediately to the west of Birmingham. Being of the coalfields, blast furnace filled the air with smoke and grime – extreme pollution
Army England

Purloin haunt – to put away, render ineffective
Delay – to appropriate wrongfully
Steal – to practice theft, filch

My Moby Dick Book
Moby Dick appeared in 1951
In 1853 the unsold copies burned up in the publisher’s warehouse fire
No one cared one way or another
The public forgot him. His prestige waned
As lecturer, he faded and withdrew from public life
The first edition did not come close to selling out in his lifetime

Original Format

Pencil, felt-tipped pen, and maker on paper.
