Many acts are noted to be "First Time Anywhere" or "First Time in America." Each act is announced with an amusing alliterative description. This particular guide also includes a lot of background information about the circus, the acts, and about Gunther Gebel-Williams and Kenneth Feld.

A wonderful piece of circus memorabilia, and includes the poster intact.

Condition: Some creasing of cover and internal pages. Tear to bottom right of cover and affecting three pages. Some creasing of first two internal pages. Otherwise in very good condition internally, with pull-out poster intact and unopened. Very rare to find one with the poster intact.
