The Davenport Collection
- a growing resource on magic and entertainment history

Signed presentation to Mr. and Mrs. Devant from the members of the Maskelyne and Cooke Provincial Company on the recent advent of their daughter

This charming presentation signed by the members of the company accompanied the gift of a Dressing Case. Research in recent decades has pointed towards their daughter Vida Mary Heather being adopted by the Devants. This might explain the wording ‘congratulations on the recent advent of your daughter’. There is no mention of the birth of Vida.
