Sketch of Richard Furman


This sketch of Richard Furman was done by his son, James Clement Furman, possibly during his tenure as first president of Furman University.  The book is titled Anastasis, (sacred dramatic dialogues on the resurrection of our Saviour): the temptations of the wilderness, Bathsheba, and other poems.  It was written by Thomas Curtis and published in 1850.  The younger Furman apparently enjoyed doodling in his books:  other volumes he owned feature sketches of dogs, horses, and various Furman family members.
