Hi,
can someone tell me if there are some books which concern the Egyptian Hall?
I know that there is a magical pro-file about St.George's Hall, but i don't really know if a similar book was made about her big brother, the Egyptian Hall.

Thank You very much

George Jenness wrote Maskelyne and Cooke: Egyptian Hall, London in 1967. Its only 93 pages and tough to find (it was limited to 500 copies).

While not exclusively devoted to the subject, David Price's *Magic* has a fair amount of material on the subject.

Crim:

Yes, Jenness' book is not easy to locate, but it's not anywhere close to being worth $350 either. Be patient and a decent copy should be yours for around $75 - $100.
