The Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth, the 1897 circus poster advertising the Barnum & Bailey circus. Note that this poster features cool artwork of a woman in a dress riding a horse, a clown and a lion tamer. If anyone knows more about this poster, please e-mail us and we will post it here.
If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been trimmed and it now measures 29 3/4" x 39 3/4" [76 x 101 cm]. Also note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: poor. There is paper loss in the top of the poster. But fortunately, it is only part of the name and the background, and the mostly solid background, so certainly, it could be re-created by any talented restorer, even if they couldn't locate an image of the complete poster (and really, all they need is an image of the complete name from the top of any Barnum & Bailey poster of this time period). It was once folded across the middle and there is paper tape on the back of the borders and on the back of the fold). Please do not bid on this poster unless you can accept its major defects described above or are willing to pay to have them properly restored.
