Post Darlington, Edgar B.P.: Circus Boys Omnibus. v5. 11 March 2013

An omnibus edition of the 5-book "Circus Boys" juvenile series, originally published between 1910 and 1920. The books tell the exciting adventures of Phil and Teddy, two teenage boys who run away to join the circus (a popular activity of the time, seemingly!).

As described by the publisher:

"No call to the heart of the youth of America finds a readier response than the call of the billowing canvas, the big red wagons, the crash of the circus band and the trill of the ringmaster's whistle. It is a call that captures the imagination of old and young alike, and so do the books of this series capture and enthrall the reader, for they were written by one who, besides wielding a master pen, has followed the sawdust trail from coast to coast, who knows the circus people and the sturdy manliness of those who do and dare for the entertainment of millions of circus-goers when the grass is green. Mr. Darlington paints a true picture of circus life."

The books in the series are:

1. "The Circus Boys on the Flying Rings" or "Making the Start in the Sawdust Life"

2. "The Circus Boys Across The Continent" or "Winning New Laurels on the Tanbark"

3. "The Circus Boys In Dixie Land" or "Winning the Plaudits of the Sunny South"

4. "The Circus Boys On the Mississippi" or "Afloat with the Big Show on the Big River"

5. "The Circus Boys on the Plains" or "The Young Advance Agents Ahead of the Show"

Note that the 5th book mentions, at the end, a further volume in the series. This is a "phantom title" which was never written.

Enjoy!
