Subtitled, "The History and Art of Ventriloquism"
Excellent book on vent! The history of vent is thoroughly covered from ancient times through today, with the modern era having more of a British slant (which is natural...the author grew up in England). Includes a chapter on how to do vent, but the real stars here are the history and the anecdotal material.
Val is an excellent writer and keeps you entertained and enthralled throughout. Even if you're not particularly interested in "ancient" vent history, it's a good thing to have general knowledge of. If you're a ventriloquist, sooner or later someone's going to ask you how vent as an artform got started. Believe me, you don't want to embarrass yourself by saying that it all started when Jeff Dunham got a Mortimer Snerd dummy when he was 8!
Read this fascinating history and get an intelligent grounding in just what it is we do...
This is the first edition, published by Kaye & Ward, Ltd. in England - 1981. Book measures 7-1/2" x 10" and is hardbound with full color pictorial dustjacket. 174pp; numerous photos and illustrations, many in color.
The first edition is SCARCER in this country than the later revised edition. This one was withdrawn from a library. The endpaper seams have split, but the binding is still nice and tight. There is a Brodart cover on the dustjacket, so it is in excellent condition. Library card pocket still inside.
