This was a gift from Tim on 1 May 2018. With the help of these high quality cards the magician is able to divine the number thought of by a spectator.
Copyright 1995 by Redstone Press, London. The description on the back of the box reads: ‘Here is an enchanting box of surprises, drawn from the fascinating and hyperbolical history of magic and conjuring. Open the box to discover an astounding compendium of rare graphics and picture cards, amazing tricks and illusions, jugglings and jokes.’ That description is about right. Compiled by Daniel Stashower.
This is an interesting advertising application of the magic square. As it says on the label: Each row, each column and each diagonal adds up to 60, the average contents of each box. Made in Sweden.
This print and glowing article appeared in ‘The Illustrated London News’ on 9 February 1856 on pages 157 and 158.
The advertisement features Woodin with his ‘Carpet Bag’ and ‘Sketch Book’ in the Large Room “which has been (at considerable expense) entirely remodelled and magnificently decorated”.
The brochure advertises La Follette, (the man of many faces) and his Unbelievables in a variety of shows for 1940. This includes Spook Parties and special Kid Shows.
In Great Britain it was necessary for dramatic plays to obtain approval from The Lord Chamberlain’s Office before they could be staged. This document dated 29 August 1905 grants permission for ‘Will, the Witch and the Watchman’, a dramatic sketch in one act, to be presented at St. George’s Hall, London. No changes to the submitted script were requested. J.N. Maskelyne had not long moved from the Egyptian Hall to St. George’s Hall. It may be that changes had been made to the script, so that it required new approval, or perhaps the change of venue from the Egyptian Hall made reapproval necessary.
The novelty is that this single sheet of paper has been slit in such a way as to allow it to be folded into the booklet of 8 pages. It was produced for an Art Trail exhibition at Conway Hall, London 4 November 2014 – 28 February 2015. The exhibition was mounted as part of the South London Women Artists Collaborative residency at Conway Hall, Red Lion Square.
This novel folding greetings card was sent to John and Anne Davenport as a Christmas 2013 and New Year card. Dany is a magician and very knowledgeable on many topics including paper engineering and pop-up cards.
