This poster was a gift from Wittus Witt in 1983.

These are tricks in a matchbox designed and produced by Wittus Witt. Copyright 1991. There are two versions: one with instructions in English and the other with instructions in German. Special thanks are given to John and Anne Davenport for help with the translation.
In German on the lid it says ‘compiled and designed by the well-known magician Wittus-Witt’. This is an unusual do-it-yourself set in that the tricks have to be constructed by the use of handicraft skills. The box was put out by Spear-Spiele Gmbh, Nürnberg.
Wittus Witt produced this in 2011. The magic set consists of 12 cards with images on one side and tricks on the other. Davenports were pleased to give Wittus Witt permission to make use of the Maskelyne’s Mysteries image.
The European Magic History Conference was held on 28 to 31 August 2013. It was ably organised by Wittus Witt.
