Tonight’s guest is writer and editor JOY M. KISER. When she was an Assistant Librarian at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Ms Kiser saw on display a truly beautiful book from the late nineteenth Century illustrating birds nests. Created  by one Genevieve Estelle Jones it was titled Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio. Kiser discovered that this was virtually a lost book. Although the lithographs rivaled those of Audubon, few people knew of the books existence.
