From: Les Pigeons par Madame Knip from 1838 in our Cullman Library, which you can see in its entirety at the Biodiversity Heritage Library, or see a few more on Flickr, here, here, and here.
Who knew pigeons could be so classy? Madame Knip did, for sure, as she put her name on this work. But then again—Madame Knip was a plagiarist of the worst kind. At least that’s the allegation in vol. 5, no. 4 of The Bulletin of the USGS, which reads,

“This work [Les Pigeons par Madame Knip] is one of the curiosities of literature…
Madame Knip accomplished a piece of truly feminine finesse, by which she stole [the text] from Temminck. To do this, she changed the cover-title of the 9th and following livraisons, and made sundry other alterations to suit her purpose…
…This was certainly a bold trick, regardless of consequences. But no such piracy as seems to have suited the lady’s taste could hope to pass without detection; and Temminck immediately published an indignant reclamation, exposing and protesting against the fraud.”
