Charles Hengler was the proprietor of Hengler's Grand Cirque and built it up into a famous establishment known throughout the British Isles. This book focuses on the story of Charles Hengler, who started with a tenting circus and made it into the most respectably conducted established circus in the country, located in what is now the London Palladium. Charles Hengler's Cirques held between 4,000 to 5,000 people and often hundreds of people had to be turned away when the building was crowded.

This volume of Hengler's Circus finishes at Charles Hengler's death and covers the years from 1780 to 1887.
