Midget Exhibit: Images From The Heyday Of Dwarf Display

In the mid-1800s, inveterate showman/salesman P. T. Barnum introduced a real-life Tom Thumb and spawned a huge movement of midget exhibits. Little people were paraded en masse throughout Europe and the New World, earning fame and fortune as the central attractions in a freak show phenomenon that lasted well over a century. Explore this little world in postcard mementoes from an era when the unabashedly curious feasted their eyes on the unusual.

If you love looking at pictures of midgets, then this is the book for you. It has many entertaining photos of little people, and makes a great gift for that special person in your life. The only issue with this book is that it is a little short....

Nifty little book about nifty little people. Surprisingly, not enough about the world-famous "Singer Midgets". Nice presentation and images worth having.

We learned more about midgets than we ever thought we would.

I bought this for a friend that had an obsession with midgets. She absolutely loved it. The book is a series of old midget photos with a short bio for each.

This was a gift for a friend! It was Exactly what he wanted! He says it's his new coffee table book.
