History of Magic and Magicians
AuthorH. J. Burlingame
PublisherChas. L. Burlingame & Co.
Publication Date1895
SubjectHistory of magic


The following little pamphlet on Magic and Magicians is not intended to be a complete work on such a vast and interesting subject. It is only to show who the leading conjurers have been in the past ages and their principal feats. Outside of the information obtained during my residence on the continent of Europe in the early '70s and again in the 80s, I desire to express my appreciation for information gathered from Mr. Carl Willman, of Hamburg, Frost's Works and from my friend, Prof. M. Herrmann, of Berlin. Perhaps in some future time the work may be taken up again.
