This is a full unabridged reprint of Houdini's own history of magic. It looks at magic through the ages and, rather unfairly, deconstructs the idea of Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin as a great originator. Controversial at the time, and now,  it was nonetheless a brilliant work of magic history for the time. Superbly illustrated with items from Houdini's extensive collection. 

 

The edition is a facsimile of Houdini's own copy, complete with his own annotations.  

 

N. B. These are in stock with us now, not "special order".
