About This Item

New York: Pantheon Books, 1973. Paperback. Wide 8vo. Stiff glazed pictorial wrappers. (Ca. 200pp). Extensive illustrations. Very good. Faint edgewear. Tight and attractive second printing of this cult classic, a bizarre gathering of small town Wisconsin photographs taken by Charles Van Schaick between 1885 and 1900.

Synopsis

First published in 1973, this remarkable book about life in a small, turn-of-the-century Wisconsin town has become a cult classic. Lesy has collected photos taken between 1890 and 1910 by a Black River Falls photographer, Charles Van Schaik, and juxtaposed them against newspaper accounts and state asylum and police records.
