G. W. Hunter (May 16, 1850 - May 17, 1936), born George Walter Hunter, was a British comedian/singer also noted for his close-up magic and inventions. He was known the "Father of Pocket Tricks".
Hunter came to the United States when he was 21, moving back to England in 1880.
Hunter's wife, Aimee Desiree (also known as Mystia) was a professional conjurer in the 1890s.
Hunter contributed to most of the magic magazine of his time and Will Goldston published many of Hunter's ideas in his books.
"Mystia" or "The World or Magic", which was written in the 1890s, is to be included in "The Davenport Story" Volume Two, The Lost Legends (2010).
