I'm not sure where to begin with this little set, it is really neat.

This is a set of 8 tiny little circus books with a copyright of 1949, Capitol Pub Co. The little set is housed in a folded cardboard "circus tent" that opens up to measure a very large 25" (book is shown open in the third photo) The inside contains pockets in which the little books fit, sadly THE SET IS MISSING TWO OF THE LITTLE BOOKS.

The books included feature spectacular little circus performers, in vividly colored pages. The little books themselves are 2 1/2" x 3 1/4". The each contain about 10 pages. I have not thumbed through each book as the pages are fragile, but the only book with considerable damage is "Effie the Elephant" as her book is missing the whole front cover. The circus tent cover, folded over as shown in the first photo measures 12 1/2" x 6 3/4". The back of the tent is shown in the third photo, and is the same size.

I imagine this piece as part of some vintage circus display as it is best not played with in this fragile state. The imagery is wonderful, and the colors are great.

•• if you desire more photos, I will happily send some. Just convo me.
