Manning-Sanders, Ruth  
The English Circus

Publisher: London, Werner Laurie,1952.
358 p.illus. 22 cm. The English circus tradition goes back several centuries. One ring tent troupes tour the country. I saw one at Oxford and it reminded me of the small shows I remember as a boy. Not your huge three-ring spectacular where you want to see it all, but the intimate version where you are aware of the run in the stocking and the depth of makeup from close up. Stock# 30,001.
