Spinners of the Big Top.

London: Chatto & Windus, 1960. First edition. Hardcover. 9.75" x 7.5". 140pp. Sunny yellow cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on the spine in original black pictorial dust jacket with minor edge wear; a near fine copy. Illustrated with black and white photos by Rex Coleman and David Simpson of Baron Studios. "This is the intimate story of the biggest tenting circus in the British Isles, run by one of the last of the old-time showmen and his ten children. An expansive individual who is known to millions through the medium of the television screen, Bill Smart's very appearance, with his palm Beach suits and Stetson hats, serves as an advertisement for his show; and the show itself achieves a unique and happy balance between tradition and the speed and colour of a West End revue."
