About This Item

Garden City NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc.. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. 1976. First Edition. Hardcover. 0-385-02959-4 . [very light soiling to top edge of text block, minimal shelfwear; jacket shows just a little wrinkling along top edge, otherwise nice and clean]. (B&W photos, facsimiles, color plates) This lavishly illustrated history "catalogues the growth of the [American] medicine show from Wizard Oil routines with their high moral tone and starched wing collars; to the humbug Indian spectaculars put on by the Kickapoo and Oregon Medicine companies; through the crucible of the Pure Food and Drug Act; right up to the giant Hadacol Caravans that showcased stars in the South during the 1950s." .
