Friedrich Wilhelm Conrad Horster products was popular in sweden.

The swedish magician Jean Bartholmi, (Folke Rydberg) 1896-1975, invented some original effects that Conrad Horster produced.
He was a good magician plus he was a great craftsman, he was also an engineer. My magic mentor when I was a junior; Safiro (Gsta din, 1922-, rebro), was a close friend to Folke R.
Long time ago Gsta din worked in Holland and had some contact w. the famous Henk Vermeijden - Fred Kaps mentor.

There is a booklet published in swedish written by Conradi, F W (Horster, F W C) Title: "Den moderna trollkonstnren", 1931.

Swedens oldest magic company; Harries had lot of business with C-H.

You should make all C-H books available as ebooks.

Talmi,

I looked around your site but I didn't see any of the stuff I sold you. ;) Keep me in mind for Houdini items.

Hello,

thank you for the quick reply. Do you own the "Den moderna trollkonstnren" book? If so, I would be happy about a scan of the cover and title page to add them to the "books" page of http://www.conradi-horster.com.

Best Regards,

before, during, how-to, after...
Young Sorrows of Young Werther stuff?

or... perhaps letters that induce that behavior?
