i'm reading the fine book by Mr.Warlock and Mr. Lewis: "THE MAGIC OF P.T SELBIT".
The book says that the first inventor of this magical illusion is Mr.Selbit, and that he was presumably the first to use it on a stage.
But in Greater Magic, it says that Torrini used the illusion, and probably invented it.
So..since Torrini presumably never existed, how come who wrote in greater magic says that Torrini one hundread years before Selbit performed it?
Is Selbit really the first to perform this illusion on a stage?
