The Theatre of Marvels is Marian Hannah Winter's story of the fantastic, exotic and supernatural world of theatre and ballet, mime and circus now translated into English from the French by Charles Meldon (1964).

Marcel Marceau, the great mime of the 20th century, has provided a tantalizing Preface.

Beginning in 1790 and ending in 1860 with its focus on theater in France and French theatricals, this book covers the careers of Jean-Georges Noverre, Jacques Louis David, Guilbert De Pixerecourt and then discusses techniques of the Theatre of Marvels, the Boulevard du temple, pantomime with Jean-Francois Arnould-Mussot, boulevard du crime, performing animals, and choreographers such as Jean Aumer and Louis Henry and Jules Perrot.

This hardcover book is in good condition, with firm binding and no markings except a name on the back of the front cover. The illustrated dust jacket is worn at the edges, scuffed and handled, but it is still a remarkably beautiful jacket with colorful pictures front and back.

The book is lavishly illustrated, with ten pages of color illustrations and about 200 other images, many full page. 208 pages long the book measures 9" x 11 1/2" x1 3/8."
