The collection contains many examples from the Adam Forepaugh Circus, Al G. Barnes Circus, Barnum & Bailey Circus, Buffalo Bill's Wild West, Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus, Ringling Bros. Circus, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and the Sells Bros. Circus. There are posters from the United States, France, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, Russia, India, Spain, Mexico, Italy, and Japan.
