        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM Of TRAVELING CIRCUS PERFORMERS And SETUP CREWS, 1930s - 1940s

      Circa late 1930s - 1940s. Colorful hemp cloth, comb binding. Black construction paper leaves. Spine cloth split; binding comb slightly cocked/ warped to upper portion; top ~8 binding loops no longer threading most leaves; some photos in album and/or corner brackets detached or loose. Photos clean and generally well-developed. VG overall.. 17 leaves containing 227 b/w photographs affixed with corner brackets, plus 19 loose b/w photos. Total of 246 b/w photos, ranging from 2-1/2" x 3-5/8" to 3-3/8" x 5-5/8"; most on average ~ 3-1/4" x 4-1/2". 14-7/8" x 12-1/4" Collection of circus photographs from the late 1930s and 1940s, primarily featuring performers during shows, practicing, relaxing or posing behind the tents, etc., as well as their trains, transport caravans, and circus animals (camels, elephants, horses, dogs). Many bear handwritten notes about the location, date, and/or the performer's name to the verso, and several are stamped with the Peoria and Decatur, Illinois, addresses of circusiana hobbyists Roy Frietsch and Bert Backstein, respectively. Backstein cofounded the Circus Model Builder's and Owner's Association in 1935, and was later commissioned by circus historian Gordon Potter to create a miniature version of a Golden Age circus; the result, with the assistance of Backstein's son, Bill, is now known as the Potter Backstein Collection. The photographers (we presume multiple) were likely not directly associated with circuses, but, like Backstein and Frietsch, enthusiasts who were friendly with the performers and crews, and allowed to take photographs outside of the public sphere of the performance tents. The performers include trapeze artists, clowns, elephant and horseback riders, and miniature horses, possibly from Backstein's own miniature circus, among others. Some of the circus companies featured are Russell Bros. Pan-Pacific, Cole Bros., Austin Bros.; most of the circuses pictured appear to have taken place in the Midwest. We date the photos partially based on the dates on the verso of some of the photos themselves, and also by the trucks and tractors shown transporting the circus cars. Overall, a delightful collection of performance and behind the scenes circus photos.

Format ca. 25 x 17 cm. 867 S., 10 farbige Stadtpläne der größten deutschen Städte & eine Übersichtskarte des Deutschen Reiches. Wie auch den 12 Originalbildern zu entnehmen, ist der Band überdurchschnittlich erhalten. Das Leder des Buchrückens sowie das Rückenschild in originalem Farbton, d.h. schwarz bzw. rot. Der Goldauftrag ist glänzend. An den Rückenkanten & Außengelenken keine Einrisse, Fehlstellen oder dgl. Der Einband ist selbst an den Buchkanten sowie Deckelecken (diese mit noch geschlossenen Lederflächen) praktisch nicht berieben; lediglich am Buchrücken & den Deckelflächen ganz marginale Bereibung. Der Buchschnitt ohne der meist anzutreffenden Standspur"; nur wenig gedunkelt, mit einigen Kratzspuren, seitlich ein kaum erwähnenswerter Fleck (3mm Durchmesser) & an der Unterseite zwei kleine punktuelle Einkerbungen; an diesen Stellen die Seitenränder auch (max. 1cm lang) eingedrückt. Die Deutschland-Karte am Ende des Bandes etwas mehr als die Hälfte gelockert. Sonst innen tadellos, vollständig, feste Bindung, durchgängig sauber, keinerlei Fleckigkeit. Im Buch liegt vorn noch ein doppelseitiges Werbeprospekt des Bibliographischen Instituts zum "Großen Duden neu in 3 Bänden" (elfte Auflage) bei - neben dem Gesamteindruck ein weiteres Indiz dafür, daß dieses Buch ganz offensichtlich nie ernsthaft genutzt wurde." 2500 Gramm.
