Magic- A Picture in History Book  
Magic- A Picture in History Book 

This is unquestionably the most profusely illustrated history of stage magic ever published. It traces developments and transitions in the art of conjuring from the time of the Pharos up to the present, and presents this panorama through a diverting and unusual array of photographs, lithographs, woodcuts, engravings, drawings, handbills, posters, and even copies of sketches from the walls of ancient buildings.

These illustrations-taken from Mr. Christopher's private collection of magic memorabilia, the largest of its kind in the world-are very rare and many are unavailable elsewhere. They offer a unique glimpse of costumes, stage settings, and apparatus used by performers at various times; the ingenious advertisements they had printed and distributed; portraits of the magicians by leading portraitists of the day; programs and decorative fans distributed as souvenirs during performances; and satirical broadsides that were passed around the streets when certain pompus showmen were ridiculed. Some of the illustrations are paintings by famous artists, such as Hieronymous Bosch, William Hogarth, and Peter Breughel.
