Max Sterling (1870 - 1941) presented an original and artistic act entitled "The Magic of Japan" comprising of production and transformation effects, accomplished by pure sleight-of hand.
The high-spot of his act was juggling a ball of torn paper on a fan which gradually changed into an egg.
Sterling was editor of these Magic Periodicals:
- Magical World (1910-1911)
- Servais LeRoy's Magical Monthly (1911 - 1913)
- Magical World, New Series (1913-1914)
- Problems in Mystery (1909)
