"The stupendous P.T. Barnum: the 'hero about whose name clusters so much of romantic interest and whose brilliant deeds are themes of poetry and prose' as one of his own posters modestly put it. Impresario, circus owner, speculator, lecturer, author, politician. Barnum was unquestionably America's greatest showman. For decades he reigned supreme as the master of trickery and extravaganza, and in Humbug: The Art of P.T. Barnum, Neil Harris demonstrates how he puffed his way to the top." Quantity Available: 1.
