The Secrets of Houdini Book  
The Secrets of Houdini Book 

World-famous illusionist, master seluser, showman; Harry Houdini

(alias of Ehrich Weiss) is one of the most legendary figures of the modern stage, and probably the most controversial and

misunderstood magician of all times. So fantastic were his tricks that many thought him to be supernatural, a mystic, and

an amazing spiritualist. Exposing his closely kept professional secrets, and revealing in general terms the whole art of

stage magic, this book is now considered a classic study of Houdini's strange deceptions.

J. C. Cannell, professional magician, friend, and colleague of Houdini in the Magician's Club, was the first to explain

rationally how Houdini achieved his tricks. These include the famous challenges to death, escapes from bank vaults and from

a Ruddian prison van lined with zinc, walking through brick walls, escapes from crates under water, disappearing ladies,

women floating in mid-air, vanishing elephants, ghostly manifestations, seances, card tricks, rope tricks, mind reading,

spirit messages, and miracles. All of these and much more are discussed in clear, simple language, and for better

understanding, the author has uncluded numerous line drawings of Houdini's ingenious escape devices, with diagrams of the

more complicated tricks. Twenty-four new photographs have been added to the twenty-three in the original edition,

illustrating scenes from the magician's life as well as his performances.
