Martinka online auction catalog live

The catalog for Martinka & Co.'s Milbourne Christopher Collection auction is now online at LIVE Auctioneers. There are over 30 Houdini related lots, including two personal Hardeen scrapbooks, one of Houdini's rarest pitchbooks, Mein Training Und Meine Tricks, personal letters and manuscripts, a copy of A Magician Among The Spirits signed to Fulton Oursler (read about Oursler's attempt to make the first Houdini biopic), and A LOT more.


The auction will be held at the Hotel Pennsylvania (401 Seventh Ave.) in New York City on April 20th, 2011. A preview will be held on April 19th.

Good luck!

  1. In the future, I'm going to hold off on reporting auctions like this in advance. My policy has always been not to report on active eBay auctions or single Houdini items in smaller auctions until they are over. Don't want to spoil someone's chances of grabbing a gem at a good price. This auction, like the recent Potter & Potter auction, I thought was big enough that putting on the site wouldn't make a difference. Not sure now. This one might have been on the line.
