This is the complete run of Conjurers' Magazine (1906 to 1908) bound in two volumes. Binding is fully intact and very good; there's a spine tear (doesn't affect binding) on volume I (see photo). Overall good condition. Great reading the stories about Houdini and the performers, issues and advertising of the era. Rare.
This is the title lobby poster from Houdini's 1920 film, Terror Island. This piece hasn't been seen for sale or auction in more than twenty-five years. Probably longer. (See how hard it is to find by Googling it.)
The piece is mint and in acid-free museum mounting in a gorgeous wood frame. Click photo to enlarge.
In a time when original Houdini paper sells for tens of thousands, this is a rare opportunity - for just one buyer.
Nice Photo of Houdini used for newspaper article. Verso contains photo caption strip (likely provided by Houdini's or Lasky's press agent) reading: "His very latest picture- showing how he looked when the Famous Player Lasky told him they wanted him to make another movie." Considering this reference photo is circa 1918.
There are also verso notations by newspaper layout staff regarding placement in 1/2 column space and "Magician and their favorite trick (sic)."
4 3/4" x 6 3/4". Photo later used on editions of The Adventurous Life of a Versatile Artist pitch book. A very nice and unique piece.
