Inhaltsangabe: Incredible... but true! The story of a man whose ingenious exploitation of his unique physical gifts made him the sensation of Paris, the rage of Europe. What was the secret of Le Petomane's act that it should have convulsed whole audiences for more than twenty years, from 1892 to 1914, and broken all records at the box office? This tribute, a curious blend of vulgarity and filfial pride, celebrates the career of a man whose natural endowments enabled him to perform feats that would be dismissed as impossible had they not been witnessed and vouched for by so many. A best seller in 1967 when it first appeared, this celebration edition, complete with the original, startling photographs, is a timeless memorial to the man who turned a physiological anomaly into a show business phenomenon. A trumpet blast to propel Britain into Europe!
