Drawing from his presentation in May 2012 from the 43 MCW, John Cox, of Wild About Harry, presents an overview of one of magic’s seldom-seen treasures, Houdini’s Guest Book from 278 W. 113th Street. Filled with signatures from 1919 to well beyond Houdini’s death to1952, the book shares its own tale travelling from home to home and owner to owner. John does a beautiful job highlighting some of the more famous and arcane visitors.
Magicol No. 184 also includes articles on Rex Slocombe, Tenichi, Mademoiselle Catherine, Charles Dickens and a review of Robert-Houdin's autobiography by Ian Keable.
