Houdini now partying in Russia

A new reprint of the 1927 book, Houdini's Book of Magic and Party Pastimes, has been published in Russia by Izdatelskii Dom Meshcheriakova. While Russian readers can purchase the book here, it is also available on Amazon.com.

Houdini's Book of Magic and Party Pastimes was first published by Stoll & Edwards, Co., New York, in 1927. The copyright reads: "Beatrice Houdini, Executrix of the Estate of Harry Houdini." Much of the content comes from Houdini's "Red Magic" column. As far as I know, this Russian edition is the first reprinting.

Original 1927 edition.

Thanks to Andrey Fedorov for this discovery and Kevin Connolly for sharing it on his blog Houdini Himself.
