Item description for Circus Parade by John S Clarke...
Roll up, roll up for a trip back in time to the heyday of the circus! Originally published in 1936, Circus Parade shows the big top at its most exciting: a world of expert horse-riders, death-defying trapeze artists, elastic acrobats, fearless lion-tamers and, of course, hilarious and loveable clowns. The author, John S Clarke, had many years' circus experience and understood its people and way of life like no other. As well as explaining the origins of the circus in Roman and medieval times and highlighting some of the most celebrated acts through history, he reveals the fascinating and sometimes tragic stories behind the glitz and sawdust of the big top. Illustrated with numerous photos of circus performers in action, Circus Parade offers a unique ringside view of this traditional yet ever-changing entertainment.
