Wreck of the Circus    

The Wreck of the Circus, by James Otis (pseudonym of James Otis Kaler)

              Crowell,  1897

Otis was a prolific writer of children's books, authoring more than 150 titles.  Sacker did designs for at least twenty-four Otis books. The simplified faces on this cover are typical of Sacker's work on Otis titles. By the printing of the "eleventh thousand" [date unknown, before 1906], the design on the back cover was gone (see below) although the front was more elaborate.
