Originally published in 1946, this second edition collector's item is a very rare book about the history of circus and fairground. 

The cover notes state: "It is a fascinating record of the evolution, history and traditions of the English Circus and Fair Ground by an author who has had an intimate experience of its picturesque life. He has travelled his own circus and met the outstanding personalities of its colourful world. Sir Garrard is also a noted breeder and trainer of wild animals and owner of one of the most famous private zoos in the country. He was Mayor of Maidstone for many years and offers a vast store of entertaining reminiscences."

Condition: The dust jacket is missing. Internally the book is in good condition, with some general yellowing, which is expected of a book of this age. There is some loosening of the spine in places, but it remains intact. Click on the photo above for a close-up of the cover showing its condition.
