The Secret Museum of Mankind (Date Unknown)

by (Unknown)
I have very little information about this book.

I do know that it spawned a fabulous series of international music CDs.

What little else I know about it is in the Compact Deuce section.

Oh, I do know one more thing: after all these years (I don't know how many, because I don't know when it was published), The Secret Museum of Mankind is back in print again! So buy it while you can, or you'll wait another I don't know how many years.!

Update, 23jan2008: Courtesy of Ian Macky, you can now enjoy the entire contents of The Secret Museum of Mankind online.

I nabbed the book image above from David Byrne's Strange Ritual.

Just think, some people thought True Stories was weird ...

STEP RIGHT THIS WAY, FOLKS!

SEE the most amazing COMPUTER IMAGE FOR THE SECRET MUSEUM OF MANKIND

NO EXPENSE was spared in capturing this BIZARRE SEPIA-TONE IMAGE which caused a LARGE PORTION of the teeny-tiny type to DROP OUT even on the ORIGINAL PAPER

We have VERIFIED by LOUPE and FLUORESCENT LIGHT that every nuance of the original image has been CAPTURED by our DEDICATED STAFF

Also please note that there are three other avertisements on this page with the same street address, 70 firth ave. They each have different departments - the other three ads are all for "Harvest House" (reduce fat, appear at once taller, beautify your form ["bust faults"]), and they have an "H" as the prefix, whereas the Metro one does not (Dept 6707).

Oh, also! Duh. Keen Magazine, July 1942. THERE'S A WAR ON, SOLDIER!
