Illustrated with 15 line drawings by
the author and a coloured frontispiece, with introduction by John
Seago was involved in the publication of many books throughout his
career. About the age of 18, Seago joined Bevin’s Travelling Show,
and subsequently spent much time touring with circuses in Britain
and on the Continent. He recorded his experiences in this book (both
the first and second editions were published in 1933), and included
a number of its illustrations in his first London solo show at the
Sporting Gallery. Although without a dust jacket, this book is well
worth the cover price even if only to cut out and frame the
wonderfully evocative paintings.
Condition: Very good.
