Barnum und Bailey grösste Schaustellung der Welt. (The greatest show on earth. This is the German language variant of the image.
In this Japan martial arts circus poster, the company is announcing a show of Japanische men and women showing all different types of Japanese martial arts like Swordsmanship, Kendo, Kenjutsu, Battojutsu, etc.
As the English circus collapsed, the big American companies maintained the prestige of the circus. In 1871, in the United States 22 big circuses were traveling, and Phineas Barnum than launched an operation of a unparalleled scale by producing a four-masted tent that was later extended to six. This required a rail transport with 21 wagons.
Barnum played an important role in development advertising displays and in the art of media effects (parade, manipulations, deceptions).

After a terrible competition with Bailey for supremacy, Barnum came to associate with James Bailey who in fact, the company ran from 1881 to 1906.

After Barnum's death in 1891, Bailey remained alone and undertook in 1897 a great five-year European tour. It was a real revolution in the circus world. The installation of the long tent of 200 meters and the rigorous organization of this true traveling city of a thousand people was a model efficiency.
The first performance in France, in Paris, in 1901, took place in the presence of the family of the President of the Republic, the President of the Council and ten ministers. The Ringling Brothers then took advantage of Barnum's absence in the United States.
