Description:
[New York: 1889]. Folio circular, 21" x 14". 4 pp. on a folded sheet. Illus. A large illustrated circular promoting a Wild West-cum-circus show in New York City produced by Adam Forepaugh. Adam Forepaugh (1831-1890) was one of the great circus organizers of 19th century America from immediately after the Civil War until his death in 1890. Forepaugh is generally credited with devising the "Wild West" idea as part of his 1869 show, although he did not create a separate show until after "Buffalo Bill" Cody began his act in 1883. This large circular, advertising the coming 1890 season, was probably printed in late 1889, as Forepaugh died 24 Jan. 1890 and is here referred to as the manager for upcoming events. His son, Adam Forepaugh Jr., an elephant trainer, is billed here as manager as well, possibly because Adam was in poor health. A rival of P. T. Barnum, Forepaugh Sr. once remarked that he would prevail over Barnum because "I have a boy and Mr. Barnum has none. My show will outlast his." However,… Read more

Franconia, New Hampshire, 1915. Inscribed photograph; silver print, 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" A scarce, early photograph of Frost seated in his writing chair, inscribed in the lower left corner "Your friend R.F. at home." This image is reproduced in Jay Parini's Robert Frost : A Life, where it is described as taken at Frost's home in Franconia, New Hampshire in 1915. In her Robert Frost : A Pictorial Chronicle, Kathleen Morrison notes "The major part of his later writing occurred as he sat in the Morris chair at the cabin with his homemade lapboard propped on his knee in front of him. In fact it would be safe to say that the greater part of his poetry started in that chair, which he had bought while he was a student at Harvard in 1897 and which he carried with him to Derry and later Franconia, Ann Arbor, and Amherst and to its final destination, the Homer Noble farm." A wonderful, inscribed copy of this iconic image of Frost at work. REFERENCES: Parini, Jay. Robert Frost : A Life. NY, 1999; Morrison,… Read more
