Here is a fabulous oversized Denslow illustrated book–My Favorite Circus Book, copyright 1903 by Denslow, published by Donohue slightly later, 44 pages. This is actually a compilation of three of Denslow’s softcover Picture Books, including “One Ring Circus,” “Zoo,” and “Animal Fair.” Nice, oversized, gorgeous color cover and printed in color throughout. Also included is another Donohue book in the same format but not illustrated by Denslow: My Favorite Fairy Book (Robinson Crusoe and Puss in Boots).

The Denslow Circus book is in near very good condition, with front and rear cover having some wear and corners worn, but with intact spine and interior bright and beautiful. Front and rear endpaper and title page slightly separating at bottom of gutter, but still well attached and book is complete. This is an especially nice Donohue production. The companion volume, My Favorite Fairy Book, is only in fair condition with many minor faults. Illustrations for this one are by C H Lawrence. Still attractive and difficult to find–the Fairy Book in similar condition at for $100.
