Extraordinary exhibition of Scapiglione

Advertising flyer for an Extraordinary Exhibition at the Saville House, Leicester Square, every day from Ten o'Clock till One, and from Two till Ten. Scapiglione. The name of SCAPIGLIONE is given to him from the extraordinary HEAD OF HAIR which is Four Feet and a Half in circumference from each angle, and of the wonderful arrangement of the same. He is possessed of the most robust temperament and advantageous form of body and most proportionate; his athletic muscular and high and majestic stature; his full and fine countenance, and his decorus and elegant demeanour. The organ of his voice is extraordinary, and he will give a proof of his great talent. Front seats, 6d. Back do. 3d. Printed by T Birt, Bloomsbury.
