The majority are for variety shows which include a magician. Most are from the UK covering the 1870s to the present day.

Maskelyne and Cooke, Egyptian Hall, London

The bill includes 'Arcana' which was first produced on 5 November 1887, according to Jenness. 'Arcana' continued for at least 8 months into 1888. The June 1888 date written in ink on the cover is therefore probably correct.
