Book Description 
  
Called "monsters" by the medical profession, the subjects of this photographic collection made their living appearing in circuses, side shows, and living museums across America from the 1880s through the 1890s. Photographer Charles Eisenmann captured the images of these unusual people within his New York studio apartment. Originally released in 1979, this new edition includes the 80 original images and background information to place the subject of each performer within America's Gilded Age. Also included is a discussion of Eisenmann's photographic techniques.
