Robert Hale, London - first edition, 1987. hardcover, 11 1/4" x 7 3/4", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers etc. Barcode excised from ffep. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Dark-blue cloth-bound boards with silver type to spine, light-blue endpapers, 14 full-colour illustrations (mostly posters & playbills), over 160 b&w illustrations (posters, portraits), a bibliography of kinds, and eight-page index. There is a bizarre cast of thousands introduced in this amazing illustrated history of the world's most spectacular entertainers - daredevils, stone-eaters, armless violinists, virtuoso petomanes, sword swallowers, a Pig of Knowledge, hypnotised parrots, singing mice and other incredible performing pets, without forgetting some incombustible ladies tippling boiling oil! Packed book weighs 1.5kgs (over 3lbs) - expect higher shipping cost.
