The opening price is a whopping $9,900, so I'm not sure who can afford to add this to their collection. (It has cycled once unsold already.) But I'm excited to learn about this series and grateful for the pics.
1920-1921 "Merry and Bright - The Favorite Comic" was published in London and cost three halfpence English coins. Merry & Bright comics, featuring "Houdini's Schooldays", was 8 pages of newsprint published every Thursday. This book contains 30 publications from 9/18/1920 thru 4/16/1921. Harry Houdini signed the first page as he did on most of the books in his collection. These comics include both amusing illustrations and short fictional stories. Being Houdini's grand nephew myself, I feel lucky to have been the caretaker of this book for 50 years. My grandmother (Bess Houdini's sister) gave it to me when I was 18 years old. In 1999 two of Houdini's niece's and his nephew all signed a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attesting to the authenticity of this book. A well known American magician has 2 of these Merry and Bright books. The outer red covering has some stains as it was often on the coffee table in my grandparents (Houdini's brother-in-law and sister-in-law) apartment.
Before you ask, no, I don't know who this particular grand nephew is. But I know it isn't John Hinson, so I'm guessing this is the Blood side of the family (maybe Jeff Blood?).
