2 Bailey, Bill, illustrator Circus Panorama
New York J. L. Schilling Co. 1946 Leporello, heavy card, paper pastedown Very Good Plus 
4to. Closed, oblong, 22 by 25 cm, extending to over 300 cm, with five folds and cover, with bright imagery of circus procession on both sides of concertina. While the inner panels have swooped shaped topsides, if one looks at the sides of the panels, they have bands of color that line up artfully. The color used is sunny and bold, and it captures the spirit of the mid-20th century circus well, while also in keeping with the prevailing style of children's book illustration of the day. The panels are of a sturdy card, as is the cover. Minor chipping along the joints, and the lightest of soiling there.
