Detailed Description
An informal history of sensational, scientific, silly and startling attractions based on 17th, 18th and 19th century broadsides from the collection of Ricky Jay. You may know Ricky Jay as the gambler Eddie Sawyer on HBO's Deadwood, or as the villain Gupta in the James Bond Film Tomorrow Never Dies. What you may not be familiar with is his abiding passion for the wonderful characters that have graced the stage, the fairgrounds, the lecture halls, the museums, the streets-indeed any venue that featured or sustained the exploits of human ingenuity.

For the uninitiated this book will serve as a splendid introduction to his world, at once rarified and remarkable, accesible and arcane.

Edited by Ricky Jay. Hardback, 2005. ISBN: 1-59372-012-2. 176 pages.
