We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Making an argument that the tradition of vaudeville is still evident in today's sitcoms and talent shows, the book traces the history of this branch of entertainment, popular from the late nineteenth century to the 1930s. The quick-moving text, illustrated with black-and-white photographs and reproductions, also discusses various types of vaudeville routines, and identifies some of the famous performers of the era, including Al Jolson and the Marx Brothers.
