As a cornerstone of the global magic scene for decades, Will Goldston was ideally placed to produce a “Who’s Who” of magic. The idea was suggested to Goldston in 1904 by Professor Hoffmann and Houdini provided further encouragement. Despite this, he didn’t start producing the work until 1932, completing it in 1934.
The book contains an unusual mix of professional magicians, semi-professionals and amateurs. It is by no means a complete list of magicians of the time, but it is a place to find details of some magicians barely recorded elsewhere. This makes it an indispensable reference for people researching magic history today. This is an unabridged facsimile reproduction.
