Edward G. Brown (1893-1947) was an English magician who has been written about twice: The Card Magic of Edward G. Brown by Trevor Hall (1973) and Edward G. Brown; A Magical Life by Paul Gordon (2005).[1] [2]


Brown's magic inspired all sorts of magicians from Dai Vernon[3] to Larry Jennings.[4] Alex Elmsley was another to be inspired by Brown's work as has been Paul Gordon.
