Necromancers

About the Show

Necromancers of the Public Domain Each month, Theater of the Apes plucks a long forgotten volume from the shelves of the New York Society Library and resurrects it as a low budget variety show.

Get some culture. Get some beer.

This month The Spinner Family (1903)

All of Nature's children are interesting, whether rock or stream, herb or tree, bird or insect or other animal, and the spiders are by no means the least interesting among them all. Nowhere will the student and lover of nature find a more profitable study or a keener joy than in delving into the secrets of the spinners, or watching them solve the problems which they meet in their struggle for existence.
