3. How close pronounce of Carlo Bosco and Carlo Broschi? May be Bartolomeo Bosco use "Carlo Bosco" (on 1839 he was under this name in Russia) because famous Farinelli? I did not find any connections between names Bartolomeo and Carlo.
4. What means "Eugene Bosco shut off his hand"? He lose half of hand or he made hole in hand and it stop work? How he did it? It was by accident or fight on duel?
I do not know. I take information from Russian books. Vadimov, "From magicians of ancient time to illusionists of our days", 1966:Bill Palmer wrote:Where did "Carlo Bosco" perform in Russia in 1839?

Unfortunatelly - not. Thanks for information.
Richard Hatch wrote:Oleg, I am pretty sure that the Boscos discussed in the Servais LeRoy book are not what you seek. It discusses the various magicians who performed the part of "Bosco" with the LeRoy, Talma and Bosco troupe (Imro Fox, Dr. Elliott, etc). No bearing on your research regarding Bartolomeo, other than possible inspiration in the choice of name.

"German Illusionist, who adopted famous name Bosco, was in Russia one year before the real Bartolomeo Bosco. This Karl Bosco was liked by Russian audience - he perform here during nine years, and at parting published in Moscow book with full description of his repertoir."Bill Palmer wrote:Is there any evidence that this person is the same as Bartolomeo, other than the Willmann article?
Really I begin suppose it before Willmann article. I compare German book "Carlo Bosco's Zauber-Kabinet." Quedlinburg und Leipzig, 1838 and Italian book "Gabinetto Magico." Milano: Silvestri, 1853. Books identical like translation. On second books portrait of Bartolomeo Bosco. I understand it was written by Heinrich August Kerndrffer and compiled from Guyot 1770, but it give ideas for search.
I understand that "Lexicon" not source but just supposition of peoples who wrote it but there is article "Bosco, Bartholomeo (Carlo)..." If you interesting I can send it to you (On German).
Please. Apologize. Am I understand correct that somebody do not respect information from "Willmann article" or you just interesting new sources? I have wonderfull piece of information about Bartolomeo Bosco from Russian magazine on 1841.
