Limited Ed of Essential Robert-Houdin on ebay

Postby Frank Lehmann » August 30th, 2021, 3:43 pm

I have just placed on ebay a new copy of the Miracle Factory's limited edition of Essential Robert-Houdin, signed by Todd Karr and Jim Steinmeyer. The item number is 234165296294 and the title is "Essential Robert Houdin Miracle Factory's Limited Edition". This is copy #10 of an edition of 12. The opening bid is half the original Miracle Factory's price. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know.

It is beautiful. And if memory serves, the endpapers are unique in each of the editions; which is to say that no two are alike.

Since the original listing of the limited edition of Essential Robert-Houdin did not sell on ebay, I've re-listed it, this time with a starting bid $100 lower. You can find it here:

Essential Robert-Houdin Miracle Factory's Limited Edition 1 of 12
https://www.ebay.com/itm/234175383863

I have also listed the following new items:

Loyd Sucker Die Box
https://www.ebay.com/itm/234175673808

Vanishing Solid Rubic Cube ala Die Box That doesn't use a shell!! Maker Unknown
https://www.ebay.com/itm/234175698144

Tabman Doctor Hofzinser's Hand - New
https://www.ebay.com/itm/234176612126

P&L Chinese Sticks (Brass) by P&L Magic
https://www.ebay.com/itm/234176637681

The Johnson Products Cups and Balls (https://www.ebay.com/itm/234167882003) will be ending tomorrow with three bids already.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Now, for me it's back to seeing what other Magic Apparatus I have and haven't used so that I can make my house payment!

Richard,

I'm assuming that it is OK for me to give this away. If not, I trust that Dustin will obliterate it!

The table has four legs on the bottom. By pulling/pushing one of the back legs, a small hook goes up and down from the table's top. The hand is hooked onto this and is weighted such that when the hook comes up, the hand goes down. Conversely, pulling the hook down via the table leg causes the hand to rise.

I'm not a great writer so if this isn't clear let me know and I'll try an alternate way of explaining it.
