KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of fairs is really the story of trade, and in this survey it extends from 2,000 B C to the present day. The changing fashions in fairs reflect the changing patterns of life, so this results in a special sort of social history. Colorful, dramatic, and full of incident that makes it easy reading as well as a good reference book. Additional market of the moment as background book for the two American World's Fairs.
