Grey cloth with black and red spine titles that read “The Great Chicago Fire” and a paper cover label, 15.5 by 23.6 cm, 85 pp. (see below). Very good with light wear at the extremities. Behind the red Curtain, or, a creative use of remainders. Once a book on the Chicago fire, Fishlove & Co. had a rectangle die-cut through the endpapers and entire textblock to reveal the joke – a cloth red curtain that you lift up to reveal an illustration of a young boy with bare buttocks. The buttocks appear to be made from some sort of plastic. A great gag.
