Text includes “Le Amson, the famous escapologist. Late of Barnum and Bailey’s Circus, in an act that borders on the miraculous, Le Amson escapes from police and prison, handcuffs (German and American), straight-jackets, leg irons, shakes, locks, chains and ropes. Le Amson, the jail-breaker, will escape from a German straight-jacket whilst suspended above bayonets and swords. The ropes that support his body will be set on fire. Should he fail to escape Le Amson will be pierced to death…The most brilliant and distinctive motor show touring Australia. J.F. Williams, Printer, 234 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne.”
