Oversize two-sheet stock poster with large color wood-engraved images of jugglers, equilibrists, and acrobats performing with juggling sticks (balancing hats), suspended from a trapeze (with a second bar being supported by ropes held in one acrobat’s mouth), balancing on each other’s shoulders, and contorted in a variety of poses. 69 x 41 3/4". With minor losses at intersecting folds and in margins expertly restored; B+. Linen backed.
