Programme for Maskelyne & Cooke’s royal performance at Sandringham, 11 January 1875

The show was given at Sandringham House by the distinguished favour of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. As might be imagined, Maskelyne and Cooke gained excellent publicity from this show. Over the years they made good use of the title ‘Royal Illusionists and Antispiritualists’.
