Very rare booklet from 1988.

From the introduction:

"There are relatively few scholarly studies of Fairs. Early writers, in general, concerned themselves with historical origins and Charters. Modern writers, on the other hand, have concentrated on the rides and shows of the Steam and Electric Eras. Between the two lies the area of interest taken up by this booklet. As a pioneering study it attempts to do little more than bring together all the evidence known to the author and to analyse it."

Condition: Very Good. Previous owner's name written on inside of cover. (Click on image above for close-up of front cover).
