Furthermore, this updated edition includes Sir Frederick Treves' original case study of "The Elephant Man "(Joseph Carey Merrick, whom Treves insists on calling "John"). There is a bonus appendix discussing Tod Browning and his swan-song film, "Freaks". And best of all (in addition to a very clinical "freak" autopsy report from 1891) is a reprint of the short story, "Spurs" by Tod Robbins that provided the basis for Browning's cult classic film, "Freaks".
The book was a good read with more pictures than most.

I have a feeling this book was shocking.....in 1989. But in the advent of the internet age, it's poor quality photos that provide nothing shocking or revelatory.Published 13 months ago by TB625
