THE STORY OF BUBKHART By Fred C. Landrus, Sr.

"George Burkhart became interested in Magic in 1890 at the age of 14 and bought a few tricks here and there. One day he heard of a Magic shop on the Bowery — Otto Mourer's Magic Shop and here he purchased bis first mechanical tricks — Rice Bowls, Cannon Ball with Orange and Rising Cards.
