Auction catalog for an unprecented sale of a collection of 27 original and practically unknown Diane Arbus photographic prints, along with the archive of the former manager of Hubert's Museum, a New York City freak show that was an inspiration for much of Arbus's early, post-fashion work. All of the photos are reproduced in the catalog, most of them in actual size.

Arbus photographs previously unknown until discovered & acquired by bookman Robert Langmuir. The photos were taken by Arbus in Hubert's Dime Museum on W. 42nd St, just off Times Square. The auction of these works was slated for 4/8/08, but was canceled shortly before the auction date. This catalogue then became unavailable, & copies are hard to come by.
