Big Top" Circus Book - Pop-Up Book ca. 1950s 3-D Scenes - Animals Clowns Acrobats


Title: Big Top" Circus Book

Description: Circus pop up book. No date or publisher indicated; made in Holland (circa 1950's). A trapezoid shaped book (having a diagonally-angled top edge) with brightly colored, illustrated boards. Blue cloth spine. Very good condition with a few starting tears in some of the scene corners. One repaired tear.

Book unfolds into a circular Big Top Circus tent; has a red silk ribbon that can be tied to secure it in its fully open position. Presented are six 3-D circus scenes, each showing some combination of circus animals, clowns, and master of ceremonies. Each scene is described by a caption in a rhymed stanza; the first caption reads "As a constant gay reminder, / That the Circus is in town, / You can see the organ grinder / And his little monkey-clown." These are the following scenes: magnificent elephants, performing bears, clowns hosing each other, prancing horses, and a balancing act performed by a strong man and his family.
