Bill Nye 1850-1896... A very forgotten humorist.

Today when you mention Bill Nye you think of the science commentator. But in the late 19th century Bill Nye was a very famous and well liked humorist. His stories were told all over and his books were quite popular as well.
Here is a photo of the humorist and one of his books I have. Look him up, he was quite funny and had he lived would have had a great place in early 20th century humor.

But sadly he died at 45 years of age. He was yet to turn 46 the year of his death.
