From the inside front cover:
"This is the story of the author's
life with an English tenting circus and the story of that circus
itself, as related to him by members of a remarkable family. It
traces 'Rosaires' from the time when the 'Count' Rosaire, busking in
a Staffordshire street, met and married the 'Countess', to the great
days when their show was the third largest in England. First
published in 1940 in the week in which France was invaded and long
out of print, the book has now been considerably augmented and
revised and is newly decorated by Laurence Scarfe."
