Great magic collections

Postby Guest » July 31st, 2005, 5:06 am

Can someone give me the internet address to some of the great magic collections, private and public. I already have:
McManus-Young (Texas U)
Carl Jones (Princeton)
H. Adrian Smith (Brown U)
New York Public Library
Mulholland Collection (Copperfield)
I am writing a bibliography and need this information for a new book.
Thank you.

Here are a few places that I've used in my own research:

State Library of Victoria; Arts Library (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)
(W.G. Alma Collection)

Library of Congress; Rare Book and Special Collections (Washington, DC)
(They hold the McManus-Young Collection, not Texas U)

American Museum of Magic (Marshall, Michigan)

Providence Public Library (Providence, Rhode Island)
(The John H. Percival Collection of Books on Magic)

State Library of New South Wales (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia)
(The R. B. Robbins collection of stage magic and conjuring)

University of Texas at Austin; Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center; Performing Arts Collection (Austin, Texas)
(Magicians Collection, 1750-1920 and Houdini, Harry (1874-1926)) ... ml#houdini

Hope that helps,
