Robert William Chambers (May 26, 1865 – December 16, 1933) was an American artist and fiction writer, best known for his book of short stories entitled The King in Yellow, published in 1895.IN SEARCH OF THE UNKNOWN1904It appears to the writer that there is urgent need of more "nature books"—books that are scraped clear of fiction and which display only the carefully articulated skeleton of fact. Hence this little volume, presented with some hesitation and more modesty. Various chapters have, at intervals, appeared in the pages of various publications. The continued narrative is now published for the first time; and the writer trusts that it may inspire enthusiasm for natural and scientific research, and inculcate a passion for accurate observation among the young.THE AUTHOR.Where the slanting forest eaves,Shingled tight with greenest leaves,Sweep the scented meadow-sedge,Let us snoop along the edge;Let us pry in hidden nooks,Laden with our nature books,Scaring birds with happy cries,Chloroforming butterflies,Rooting up each woodland plant,Pinning beetle, fly, and ant,So we may identifyWhat we've ruined, by-and-by.
