Wonders of the Circus

Marvellous scenes of trained animals from the late 1800's. Three sections illustrated with 48 color-tinted images:

- Visit to the Circus: Dancing Horse Act, Trick Horses at Dinner, Eight Horse Riding Act, Bareback Drum Act, and many Bareback riding tricks;
- Monkeys' Circus: The Band at the Door, Toby Spinning the Dishes, Miss Lily's Ride, and other monkeys performing human circus acts, including a dinner which seems to be working out better than the Horses';
- Wonderful Performing Dogs: Performing Poodles, the Wheelbarrow Ride, and other amazing tricks by fully clothed small dogs with some Newfoundlands obligingly playing the role of Dogs.

Interesting pencil inscriptions and poem written by Daisy Maud Watkins as a young child who received this book for Christmas in 1885 and moved to Logan, Ohio in 1886.

(19th c dolls like wax and wax over composition mentioned).

22525 Santa's Circus in box. White Plains Greeting Card Corp. Copyright 1952

Santa's Circus.

Unique in that every toy is completely present and in perfect condition... even the life saver retains its cellophane wrap and has not stuck to the opposite page as is usually the case. The magic pencil and the clown clicker nose are present! Ellie Elephant's 60 year old balloon "trunk" has hardened, not sticky, and thus there is no damage to the facing text. A beautiful example of the novelty books of the 40's and 50's designed to be used as toys.

22481 Drawing for Children 1875/1830's

Drawing for Children. Miller 1875/1830's.150 cuts.

Originally published in London in the late 1830's and fascinating for its view of children's learning (4 to 5 to 10 or 12). The object was to start from a young child's perception of the whole, to correct gently if at all, and to alternate this copying with drawing from life and from the imagination. " to teach him to think and act for himself, not to teach him to imitate another." The book contains an introduction on the principles of art education, notes to the teacher on the teaching of art, notes on every individual exercise, and 150 woodcuts to copy. Most are of common objects, dogs, and cows. The rather crude drawings were intentional; perspective, foreshortening, and shading were treated only briefly at the very end. (In the 1840s large drawing copies, for use by 40 or 50 children at a time, were also published). Do you know an art teacher sheltering at home? This is the book for them!

22484 Our Dogs F. T. Barton [1911]

Our Dogs and all About Them. F T Barton, Estes [1911], 1st Am

The author, the veterinary surgeon to the Gamekeepers' Association of the United Kingdom, has written numerous books on horses and earlier books on Toy, Terrier, Non-Sporting and Sporting dogs. Exhaustive treatment of kennel management, breeding, hunting, medical care, "breaking and training" and exhibiting, with a description of many breeds as to their confirmation, suitability, popularity and current price. (very little on temperament.) Interesting to see how breeds and their popularity have changed. Clumber Spaniels are a favorite of his.
