This rather well known photograph, reproduced in Devant’s ‘My Magic Life’, shows Vida and Jasper as they appeared with Devant in his Boy, Girl and Eggs trick at the Royal Command Performance at the Palace Theatre, London on 1 July 1912. For some reason Devant’s book gives the date of the photograph as 1913.
Devant produced this for his 1912-1913 music hall tour. As it says on the front page: ‘Stories of Mr. Devant’s career, and accounts of some of his famous mysteries, will be found in the following pages.’ There is indeed much detail and many illustrations of Devant’s tricks. The back page advertises Devant’s appearance at The Empire, Stratford, week commencing 22 August 1912. The front page gives the price of the issue as ‘PRICELESS’.
