Anbieterinformationen: Aah! Rare Chicago specializes in collections of Chicago authors such as David Mamet, Ben Hecht, Vincent Starrett, Carl Sandburg, james t. Farrell, Eugene Field and many others along with collections of Chicago Publishers such as Stone and Kimball and Way and Willams. We have hundreds of books about Chicago dating back to the early 1800s including Crime, Prostitution, Banking, Mayors, Architecture, Newspapers, Sports, the 1968 Democratic convention riots including posters and the subsequent conspiracy trial, Prefire imprints and Business. Much of the material is very difficult to find material such as in early in magazines and other ephemera.
