    Description

    Bostock & Wombwell's Circus Poster (Bostock and Wombwell's, early 1900s). Poster (20" X 30"). Miscellaneous.
    A delightful stone lithograph for one of the most successful traveling zoos in British history. Bostock & Wombwell's Menagerie was a small circus that criss-crossed the British Isles backwards and forwards, giving countless thousands in small towns their first glimpse of wild beasts. The poster still has its original date snipe attached, with the menagerie appeared at "the usual ground, Wigan," (a small town roughly 16 miles west-northwest of Manchester). An unrestored poster that displays signs of use. It has been attached to cardstock, and could easily be removed. May include light edge or fold wear, slight fold separations, very minor paper loss, pinholes, or unobtrusive stains. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
