Description

This is a biography of John Henry Anderson, better known as "The Great Wizard of the North." According to Anderson, the chief requisites for success in the performance of fears of legerdemain are manual dexterity and self-possession. The former by practice, the latter by well-grounded confidence." Houdini felt a kinship with the Scottish conjure and called him "unique in the annals of magic as a doer of daring things."

His story is written by his great-great-grand-niece, Constance Pole Bayer. Mrs. Bayer reveals for the first time the true story of this extraordinary magician, his wives and his performing children. The Aberdeen Press published the following, on February 4, 1874: "The full story of John Henry Anderson need not, nor should not, be told." But now Mrs.Bayer tells all.

Hardbound, 180 pages.
