Humbug The Art of P. T. Barnum

Softcover, Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1981. Fine. "Neil Harris's Humbug: Thje Art of P. T. Barnum is, in my mind, one of the most valuable contributions to American cultural studies of the 19th century in recent years. Cast in the apparent form of a biography, the book deals with Barnum's remarkable career,...and also explores American cultural life, the developing urbanization between 1840 and the 1880's, and some major patterns within the movement. .." --The Nation.
