De Vere Prestidigitation catalogue from 17 Rue Saulnier, Paris

This pre-1910 De Vere catalogue carries an ink stamp for Horace Hurm & Prévost, who took over the business in c1910. According to Jacques Voignier in the Voignier and Albo book 'Magic of France', Hurm & Prévost took over De Vere's business around 1910. This explains the presence of the ink stamp on the cover and title page, as can be seen in the images. A typical page is also illustrated.
