Chas. Lee's Great London Shows; The Largest and Best on Earth Congress of Training Animals [etc. etc.]

N.p. No stated publisher, n.d. [1880s-90s]. No stated edition. Unbound sheet. One newsprint broadsheet, folded once to make 4 pages. Good: chipped, wrinkled, tear to front page with a little loss (could be carefully mended). Item #31091

Large advertising flyer for Lee's "monster aggregation of living marvels.  The most successful exhibition traveling of features that cannot be duplicated in America."  Advertises educated horses, donkeys, and dogs; reed and cornet bands; "M'lle Elnora the great French slack wire artiste; the original and only Thorn great Egyptian juggler; Chas. Lovell the human snake; the ruling stars of the classic, arenic realm;" etc. etc.  Adult admission was 25 cents.  With a list of the cities the show had traveled to over the last two years: Philadelphia, Baltimore, Richmond, Chicago, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Charleston, Mobile, Atlanta, and Savannah, each for one to four weeks.  Perhaps an early Lee courier, since he announces his new scheme of one-day shows in small and medium-sized towns, which he carried out in the 1890s.  Very scarce. Shipping/handling will be extra; please keep this in mind when ordering.

Price: $300.00
