About this Item

Small 4to. Stiff glazed color pictorial wrappers. 15pp. Color illustrations. Very good. Laid in is a Typed Letter Signed from Robert L. Parkinson, Circus World Museum chief librarian and historian: 1p, 8" X 11", Baraboo, WI, 1973 September 25. Addressed to Lyle Juneau. Near fine. On elaborate Parkinson thanks a circus buff for a donation of books: "It is donations such as this, and the thoughtful efforts of many others like you, that enables the Library and Research Center to grow and expand to cover all facets of circus history." Signed simply "Bob." Original elaborate envelope (with promotional inserts) also present. Parkinson (died 1991) was a giant in the world of circus studies; he served as first librarian of Circus World Museum's Library and Research Center (Baraboo, Wisconsin) from 1965 until his death; under his direction their collection became the best and largest circus materials collection in the world, and in 1994 it was renamed in his honor; he served as national president of the Circus Historical Society (1966-67) and in 2002 his "Directory of American Circuses 1793-2000" was published.
