“A mile of gleam, gold, glint, and glistening glamor” beset with “sonorous metals blowing martial sounds.” Such was the circus parade, “the most alluring form of advertising ever conceived by man.” Here it all is, in a modestly priced paperback. We see the telescoping tableaux, the forty-horse hitch, the Una-fon. These are marvelous pictures of a razzle-dazzle, and now vanished, American entertainment.
