Stanley Collins brochure

The cover of this well produced publicity brochure describes Collins (1881-1996) as an Entertainer, Society Conjurer and Chinese Juggler. The inside pages, also illustrated here, describe other skills such as Juvenile Entertainer and Ventriloquist. It was very common for entertainers to offer a wide range of skills in the early 20th century. Collins’s story is a fascinating one, told well in the book by Edwin A. Dawes: Stanley Collins – Conjurer, Collector and Iconoclast, published by Kaufman and Company in 2002.
