Customer reviews for The Unmasking of Robert Houdin
If you are looking for an interesting book to add to your magic book collection, Houdini’s exposé of Robert Houdin is certainly a strong contender. Houdini seems to go to great lengths tracing the true inventors of the tricks Robert Houdin took credit for in his ‘Memoirs’. It features historic photos, newspaper clippings and diagrams throughout, and the annotated version adds something extra to the mix. I did occasionally find his handwriting hard to read, but that could well just be me. I’d say it is a rather niche book, but one I found throughly enjoyable and educational.
