CIRCUS: From Rome to Ringling

An analysis, history and detailed chronicle- this is the evolution of the present day circus, so recently ending its expected and well-loved tours. All the way back to the individual components long ago, the text covers circus life from Egypt, which knew equilibrists and prestidigitators, on through Greece and Rome, the Renaissance world and the America of Barnum- and gives full scope to a towering family tree.
