If You Enjoy Magic History Or Houdini....

Postby Kevin Connolly » February 12th, 2012, 9:36 pm

Today I posted on my blog an interesting piece of Houdiniana. If you ever read any decent biography on Houdini, then you might be familiar with the Cologne libel trial Houdini was involved in 1902. The first image you will see is the cover of the book Houdini assembled from the trial. There are documents, telegrams, notes etc. contained inside this over-sized book. As time permits, I will post more about this unique item.

Here is the link to the blog:
