Struggles and Triumphs: Or, Forty years' Recollections of P.T. Barnum; Author's Edition. Revised, Enlarged, Newly Illustrated, and Written up to December, 1878, by the Author
Buffalo: The Courier Company, 1879. Hardcover. Good. Inscribed on front flyleaf in light pencil by Barnum "With the author's compliments / 1879/ P.T. Barnum." Original pebbled navy cloth with copper spine lettering. Author's edition. Illustrated with 33 woodcuts. Former owner's name and info follow on next blank page. Good+ overall with cloth frayed at head, tips exposed, front hinge starting, spine lettering rubbed. Not a bad copy. Signed by the famous promoter, politician, and founder of Barnum & Bailey Circus. An inveterate self-mythologizer, Barnum excelled at the genre of memoir (not surprisingly) and this book was a runaway bestseller, going through many editions.
