Hello!
I'm Germn Arciniegas, professional magician from Colombia. I've doing a research about a magician named Maximiliano Londoo, also known as Max Londono, Max-Lond or Conde Maximiliano.

There are very little information about his work in Europe and the US, I know he lived in New York for a while working in Tannen's and teaching magic in private classes. Also, that there are some tricks like his version of the gypsy thread, mouth coil, torn and restored newspaper, rising and jumping card...

I like to know more about him. His presentations, his influence (the magicians here told me that he tech some magic to David Copperfield).

Thanks a lot.

Germn

The best trick he did was Eternal String, but the explanation in the New Stars of Magic misses all the good details (which I can't remember). When he did it, it was a miracle.

Almost a shame, those performances at Tannen's would be a fine thing to post as YouTube clips. Some folks did some impressive demonstrating there.

Thanks! local magicians in Colombia told me the same about his trick, because of his way of perform.

Do you remember any funny o curious history of him?
