H.J. Burlingame's 'Around the World with a Magician and a Juggler' has become a genuine rarity.  Now reprinted, this important work contains the only attempts at full biographies of Professor (Hartwig) Seeman and William D'Alvini, with further scarce information on the lives and performances of Ernesto Patrizio and Bellachini, all prominent and successful magicians of their day, and now largely forgotten. Also included is Bellachini's presentation and method for the classic Eggs from Mouth effect (which he is said to have originated), and Dr. Max Dessoir's seminal study on the Psychology of the Art of Conjuring.  Hardbound, 172 pages.  Originally published in 1891.
