Antique LIVING SKELETON Circus Sideshow ISAAC W SPRAGUE Freak Thin Man CDV PHOTO
Up for sale is this rare antique cdv photo of Isaac W. Sprague, the Living Skeleton. The cdv is in good condition with some light wear and a little fading to the photo. It measures approximately 4 1/8 inches by 2 3/8 inches. Please look at the scans to further note the condition. Sprague (May 21, 1841 January 5, 1887) was an entertainer and sideshow performer, billed as the living human skeleton. He was born on May 21, 1841, in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Although normal for most of his childhood, Sprague began irreversibly losing weight at age 12 after feeling ill after swimming. The weight loss continued throughout his life despite having a healthy appetite. His condition has been described by historians as extreme progressive muscular atrophy. This ultimately led to his death. Isaac bounced around from job to job during early adulthood. He worked as both a cobbler for his father and a grocer. However, his illness kept him from continuing down either of those career paths. His parents died and Sprague could not work enough to support himself, so he was left unemployed. In 1865, he was offered a job at a circus sideshow, where he became known as “the Living Skeleton” or the Original Thin Man. The next year P. Barnum hired Sprague to work at his (newly reopened) American Museum. Sprague remembered the moment Barnum offered him the job: Mr. Barnum stood very near me, and I overheard him say to his agent,’Pretty lean man, where did you scare him up? Barnum’s Museum burned down in 1868 and Sprague managed to escape with his life. At this point, Sprague took time off to marry his wife, Tamar Moore. They had three sons who lived healthy, normal lives. Sprague made attempts to stay away from the sideshow, but he could not escape financial distress. It is rumored that in addition to being financially responsible for his wife and their three sons, Sprague had a gambling problem. His condition also kept him from finding real work anywhere other than Barnum’s. So he continued to tour off and on throughout the country and eventually overseas. By the age of 44, he was 5 feet and 6 inches tall with a weight of only 43 pounds. Sprague’s condition required him to be constantly taking in nutrients. His health was in such a poor state that he often carried milk in a flask around his neck. He would sip this from time to time to keep himself up and conscious. He died on January 5, 1887, in poverty, of asphyxia in Chicago, Illinois. Sprague was the first of many more Living Skeleton acts to come. In a result of forced promotion and work pressure, it was not uncommon for the Living Skeleton act to marry the Fat Lady act.

The School for Scandal. Follow Us on Instagram /theschoolforscandal/. A new paper cutting,, advertisement of Claude-Ambroise Seurat a freak show attraction from Troyes, France. He was known as “the anatomical man or the living skeleton”. Seurat was also the subject of an anatomical drawing of Francisco Goya after the Spanish painter met him in 1826 at a circus in Bordeaux. Seurat’s toured across Europe aroused controversy and because of the publicity, there was extensive interest in his life, particularly from the medical establishment. An account, for instance, cited that Seurat was born healthy and was normal like other children except for his depressed chest. By age 14, his health dwindled so that his frame already became skeletal in form. When he visited London for a tour in 1825, Seurat was described having normal height, being between 5 feet 7 inches (1.70 m) and 5 ft 712 in (1.71 m), but with an emaciated body; at the time, he weighed 78 pounds (35.4 kg). The circumference of his upper arms was 4 inches, his waist was less than 2 feet (0.61 m) around, while his neck was short, flat, and broad. Later, in 1832, he was stated to have weighed 43 French pounds and was 5 ft 3 in (1.60 m) tall. Seurat’s last recorded performance was in 1833 at Dinan in Brittany. And apparently died in 1868. The newspaper cutting is dated Sunday, August 14th 1825 and some faint writing reading Bell’s Life in London, which was a London newspaper and by repute “Bell’s Life became Britain’s leading sporting newspaper, without which no gentleman’s Sunday was quite complete”. Housed later in Chinoiserie style frame, 37.5/15cm. The newspaper cutting depicts Seurat with the blurb reading. The public exhibition of this extraordinary being commenced on Thursday, in Pall Mall, and, as might have been expected, attracted a considerable number of visitors. The following account of his peculiarities is from the pen of a medical gentleman by whom he was visited for scientific purposes:- The name of this curious being is Claude Ambroise Seurat, born on the 10th of April, 1797, at Troyes, in Champagne. His mother was a woman of good health, and experienced neither fright nor accident during the term of parturition; so that no part of his malformation and consequent state can be accounted for by external causes. According to the statement of his father (the mother is dead), he presented nothing extraordinary in his appearance at the time of birth; though, in my own mind, I have no doubt but the same malformation was existent then, which is so apparent now. He continued growing until the usual term of life, and concomitant with that growth were his depletion and loss of muscular power. Upon entering the room, a stopping posture of sitting, attenuated hands, sunken eyes, and meagre face, tend strongly to impress the mind of the visitant with an idea, that he has just emerged from the couch of long continued illness. With regard to individual features, they are, however, perfect, and such, as, it lit by health and excitation, would afford a face of considerable attraction; his eye is dark and full, and the tunica conjunctiva of a beautiful whiteness; but the effect of this organ is rendered painful to the beholder, by that expression of anxiety and glaziness so generally observed in persons labouring under phthisis; his teeth are good, and his capability of mastication suited to his need, preferring for his diet that which calls for the least effort of the masticatory muscles. On Sunday last I was with him at the time of dining l, when he took soup (vermicelli, I believe) to about the amount of four table spoonful, eating the eight of a penny French roll with it; this, with the half of a small glass of cider, constituted the whole of his repast. He appeared anxious for the meal, but by the time he had eaten half the specified quantity, his appetite evidently decreased. He is able to feed himself by bending his head down halfway to the table, where the fore arm rests, but when requiring drink, his mother-in-law (who is most kindly attentive to him) must supply him, as he cannot raise the glass to mouth. His sleep is mostly sound and good, occasionally, only, interrupted by nightmare; his digestive powers seem quite efficient to the task assigned to them, and his state of body is regular. The pulse, whenever I have examined it, has been full and soft, and of a natural acceleration. On Sunday it was increased a few beats after his dinner. He converses in good french, and with considerable vivacity, appearing, however, exhausted of continued many minutes: he did not, according to his own account, experience the slightest inconvenience from sea-sickness, during the passage over: indeed, I almost doubt whether he has muscular power sufficient to eject the contents of the stomach; at any rate, the effort would be attended with great risk to himself. His general health they state to have been good, but he has laboured formerly (five years since) with a liver complaint, and also an attack of pleuritis. At present he is perfectly free from any bodily affection; though I much fear the inequities of temperature experienced in a English winter, and he frequent exposure he is threatened with by exhibition, will tend to produce disease of the lungs.
