1905 Barnum & Bailey Route Book
I've been asked by a friend to sell some route books for him. This is a 1905 Barnum & Bailey route book. The cover is scuffed up as you can see but a hand crafted plastic cover has been made to be in place to protect it. ( I slipped the cover off to scan this. ) The Book is complete and intact with no loose pages. There are 112 pages. The Book is 10 1/2" wide by 7" tall. $200.00 firm.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
