THE CIRCUS 1870 1950 This is a behemoth of a coffee table book and is quite simply the last word on the subject of circus in America I bought the book on line as a Christmas gift for my husband, an ardent circus fan I was unprepared for the enormity of the volume, when the at least 20 pound package arrived But, when opened, I discovered a treasure chest of marvelous art and history He loves it The big and boffo art posters spell CIRCUS in the best of hyperbole and the book is a treat to peruse Better get something like a dictionary table, though, to hold it Then, pull up a chair, roll up your sleeves and have at THE CIRCUS, for an hour or ten of delightful immersion and celebration of an entertainment institution not just American, but world wide, with a rich and lustrous history.
