In the nineteenth century the Circus was everywhere, from rings in little tents in country meadows to rings in finely decorated theatres in great provincial towns. The men and women who performed in them were equestrians, acrobats, jugglers, clowns, masters of every speciality of skill and dating. Their names were recorded on flamboyant posters. But today they are completely forgotten.

Until now. John Turner has combed the records, and brought the performers back to life in a work of fantastic research. Students of popular entertainment everywhere will find this work beyond compare, in revealing a world that seemed lost beyond recall.
