Erik Jan Hanussen

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Recently, I had to choose a historical figure for a report in a history class of mine. As you can guess from the Subject, I picked Hanussen. If anyone knows a good source for information on him (books would be best), it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

PS. I already have the July 2004 copy of Genii which features him.

Ben, you might look on for the book from which the article in Genii was drawn. It is the definitive book on the subject.
