Wild, Weird, and Wonderful: The American Circus 1901-1927 as seen by F. W. Glasier, PhotographerDeath, Crime, Car Crashes, Freaks and the Circus, Photography
by Mark Sloan. Quantuck Lane Press, 2003. First Edition. Near fine in dust jacket.
Glasier s work was unique in many ways, not the least of which was the off-hand elegance he allowed his subjects, even the wonderful animals. This was the era of the big tents, and in these beautiful prints they appear as seductive, gossamer backdrops to the performers. Mark Sloan s discovery of Glasier s work is a true gift to circus lovers and all of us who care about our past
