DR. AMEISENHAUFEN'S FAUNA

Göttingen: European Photography / Scientific Division, 1988. First edition. 8vo., 83 pp., with illustrations from b&w photographs, drawings and field notes. Brown stiff paper wrappers titled on the spine and front cover. A fine, near new copy but for a price sticker affixed to the blank inside of the rear wrapper. Item #52702

An elaborate hoax perpetrated by Fontcuberta and Formiguera which exploits the notion that photographs are to be taken as facts. This fanciful production purports to be the archive of a German naturalist who scoured the earth documenting Jakcalopes, snakes with six pairs of legs, a squirrel whose tail is a living reptile, etc. Text in English with captions in both German and English.

Price: $375.00
