At New York Comic Con, we presented exclusives inspired by a gentlemen's guide to the seraglios of New York City that was published in 1870. We had created several products that were unable to go live at the convention due to component and time constraints. We are offering them now as a fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy relief. Proceeds from every single purchase of these limited edition products will go directly to the American Red Cross.
Without further ado, we are thrilled to present an addendum to the Gentleman's Directory.

++ THE GENTLEMAN'S DIRECTORY: NEW YORK CITY IN 1870 ADDENDUM
Nor set down aught in malice.
We don't intend to tell the reader where the Central Park is, the Croton Aqueduct, the new Court House, Cooper Institute, or Knox the hatter, as any one can point out to him the location of these celebrated places, but we propose to acquaint him with locations and with facts, a knowledge of which he could not procure elsewhere.
We claim no credit got telling a person that Cape Horn is on the island of Terra del Fuego, or that London is on the western side of England; but when we impart information that is not generally known, even to old denizens of the city, and give him an insight into the character and doings of people whose deeds are carefully screened from public view; when we discribe their houses, and give their location, we supply the stranger with information of which he stands in need, we supply a void that otherwise must remain unfilled. Not that we imagine the reader ever desire to visit these houses. Certainly not; he is, we do not doubt, a member of the Bible Society, a bright and shining light, like Awful Gardner or John Allen.
But we point out the location of these places in order that the reader may know how to avoid them, and that he may not select one of them for his boarding house when he comes to the city. Our book will, therefore, be like a warning voice to the unwary – like a buoy attached to a sunken rock, which warns the inexperienced mariner to sheer off, lest he should be wrecked on a dangerous and unknown coast.

MRS. PALMER'S ESTABLISHMENT ATMOSPHERE SPRAY
The house No. 112 Spring street is kept by Mrs. Palmer. It is a low establishment, and frequented only by the lagends of the community.

THE WARS OF VENUS BATH OIL
The house at No. 140 is kept by Mrs. James, and is a very quiet parlor house, devoted to the wars of Venus.
This phrase "Wars of Venus" was too wonderful; it inspired a scent immediately. Gird yourself for battle: sweet honey, French vanilla, honey myrtle, balsam of tolu, and rose otto.
.4oz bath oil.
