By Stanley Burns

I miss Stan.  He was a wealth of vent knowledge and information.  This book was his life's work...he toiled on it for years.  And unfortunately, he never got to see the finished product.  This book is a shining testament to Stan's love of ventriloquism and ventriloquists.  He covers some of the ancient history, but the book really comes into its own with the coverage of the 20th century "Golden Age" of ventriloquism.  You'll examine the photos for hours and read the anecdotes again and again. 

After Stan's passing, his lovely widow Sylvia enlisted the aid of Dan Ritchard to get the book finished and produced.  Dan did a yeoman's job and deserves much credit.  I do wish there had been a final fact check or two, however, as there are a few unfortunate instances of names misspelled and incorrect captions, but overall, I know Stan would be proud to see this.

This highly desirable book gets my highest recommendation. It was a limited edition printing to begin with and is already long out of print.

First (only) edition, copyright 2000.  380pp, 9" x 11" hardcover with glossy pictorial dustjacket.  Includes a 24pp section of full-color plates.

Near Mint condition.
