The 21st consecutive year is 1893-1894. According to the book on the Egyptian Hall by George Jenness, the first production of ‘The Artist’s Dream’ was in September 1893, so this programme cannot be earlier. Jenness also says that at Easter 1894 Devant was billed as presenting electric shadows, in addition to sleight of hand. This programme does not include electric shadows, so is therefore probably between September 1893 and Easter 1894.

The twenty-first consecutive year is 1893-1894. According to the book on the Egyptian Hall by George Jenness, the first production of ‘The Artist’s Dream’ was in September 1893, so this programme cannot be earlier. Jenness also says that at Easter 1894 Devant was billed as presenting electric shadows, in addition to sleight of hand. This programme is therefore probably between Easter 1894 and May 1894.

On 18 October 1958 there was an All Bengal Reception for P.C. Sorcar. This presentation programme is most impressive. It has 15 pages between thick end boards, held together with a bright cord through the middle. The pages contain information on the reception and praise for Sorcar from around the world.

Maskelyne and Cooke’s twentieth consecutive year at the Egyptian Hall was 1892-1893. According to the book by George Jenness on the Egyptian Hall, Louis Duprez and his trio of Canine Conjurors was new to the Hall on 19 December 1892. Jeness also said that just before Christmas 1892 Douglas Beaufort finished, but the dogs remained on the holiday programme, which also included Arcana, Proper-ganders and Mr. H. Verne. The earliest date for this programme would therefore be just before Christmas 1892.
