Description
 
A two-sided magazine supplement for a new game called Le Cercle, a field game similar to croquet. In fact it was meant to be a competitor to the popular game of croquet, and one of its advantages was that it could be played on a smaller field then croquet. The front side has an idyllic black and white illustration  of a couple and young woman playing the game in a small field next to a pond with a forest in the background. There are instructions on how to play the game as well as testimonials from people who have played. Such as "the set which we have used at our home has become so popular that it is now going the rounds of our friends' houses", and "my children have played a great deal with it. It is a very nice game." On the bottom of the back page is a price list for the various items one needs in order to play a game of Le Cercle. Double sided leaflet. Measures 8 1/4" x 5 1/2".
