Great magic collections

Postby Guest » July 31st, 2005, 5:06 am

Can someone give me the internet address to some of the great magic collections, private and public. I already have:
McManus-Young (Texas U)
Carl Jones (Princeton)
H. Adrian Smith (Brown U)
New York Public Library
Mulholland Collection (Copperfield)
I am writing a bibliography and need this information for a new book.
Thank you. aguil@idirect.com

Here are a few places that I've used in my own research:

State Library of Victoria; Arts Library (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)
(W.G. Alma Collection)
http://www.slv.vic.gov.au/collections/arts/magic.html

Library of Congress; Rare Book and Special Collections (Washington, DC)
(They hold the McManus-Young Collection, not Texas U)
http://www.loc.gov/rr/rarebook/coll/154.html

American Museum of Magic (Marshall, Michigan)
http://www.americanmuseumofmagic.org/

Providence Public Library (Providence, Rhode Island)
(The John H. Percival Collection of Books on Magic)
http://www.provlib.org/accessinfo/special/special.htm

State Library of New South Wales (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia)
(The R. B. Robbins collection of stage magic and conjuring)
http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/rarebooks/spcoll/robbins.cfm

University of Texas at Austin; Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center; Performing Arts Collection (Austin, Texas)
(Magicians Collection, 1750-1920 and Houdini, Harry (1874-1926))
http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/collections/p ... ml#houdini

Hope that helps,
Jim
