2 THE CERCLE FRANCAIS OF HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESENTS CASSANDRE By Fernand Baldenne as a Benefit for French Relief....
[1941] Very good 
Hand-drawn theatrical poster (approximately 17" x 27") on stiff cardboard. Solid orange backdrop or coating with black lettering and an image of the Trojan prophetess, Cassandra. This is a handmade theatrical poster for a 1941 production of a three-act play entitled Cassandre, staged by the Cerlce Francais of Harvard University. The Cercle Francais had a long history at Harvard, and from the late 19th century until the 1940's, the club produced French plays for the university community. This particular play was written by the French scholar and one-time Harvard professor, Fernand Baldensperger, under the name of Fernand Baldenne. Given the outbreak of war in Europe, the proceeds of this production were to be used "as a benefit for French relief. " One long crease mark on the verso of the poster that is barely visible on the recto and a 5-inch closed tear at the lower left hand corner. Nevertheless, the poster is fully intact.

ILLUSTRATED AND DESCRIPTIVE HISTORY OF THE ANIMALS CONTAINED IN SANGER'S ENGLISH MENAGERIE OF TRAINED ANIMALS, &C., &C., COMBINED WITH HOWES' GREAT LONDON CIRCUS AND MARDI-GRAS CARNIVAL COMBINATION., Toole, T.R.

New York Martin B. Brown, printer 1876 Softcover Good Softcover 
Pamphlet (approximately 5 7/8" x 9 1/8"), stitched as issued. 47,[1]pp. including 23 woodcut illustrations of exotic animals and full page advertisements for the British Cornet Band, Howes' circus, and the printer, Martin B. Brown. Elaborately-decorated color pictorial paper wrappers. Front wrapper shows an image of a pyramid of elephants and rear wrapper depicts an image of 5 snarling tigers with their trainer. This is one extended promotional piece for an 1876 tour of the United States by an English circus and traveling zoo that appears to have been promoted by Henry Barnum. "Mr. Henry Barnum, well known as a most successful and enterprising manager, gives his personal attention to the entire exhibition. . . " Worldcat lists just one copy held by U. S. libraries and that copy lacks the 6 additional pages that appear here. In addition to promoting the circus, this pamphlet also demonstrated the printing capabilities of Martin B. Brown, who announced: "Show Printing a Specialty. " Modest soiling, a few crease marks with some splitting at the spine. Still a very nice copy of an uncommon item. 
Price: 400.00 USD
