This is a MUM magazine from 1917 with a great photo of Harry Houdini and Harry Kellar on the front cover. The magazine is 12 pages with photos inside, including one of Beatrice Houdini. There is a three page continuing story by Houdini on Prof. Anderson with a photo taken by Houdini of Prof. Anderson’s grave. Some of the names mentioned in the magazine are Houdini, Kellar, DeBierre, Prof. Hoffmann, Hardeen and many, many more. The magazine is in decent condition for being 93 years old. It’s not mint and it’s not a dog. If you want this piece for your collection, just send me an email to see if it is available, as I only have one. The price is $25.00 delivered.
I have about 10 or 15 other MUM magazines when Houdini was president of the Society Of American Magicians. Many of them have magic history and Houdini too! If anyone wants these, they would be $12.00 each or $10.00 if you buy a few of them at the same time. Please email me if you are looking for specific issues to complete your set.
