Hellis in Wonderland - magic

Although Professor Hellis performed in venues such as The Royal Polytechnic Institution and The Brighton Aquarium, gave lessons to magicians such as Professor Hoffmann and Dr Holden and was admired by no less than David Devant, little has been written about him. Hellis in Wonderland changes that, allowing you to read and study Hellis's magic exactly as Hellis taught it. The content is based on a hand written notebook from Peter Lane's collection, written by Hellis and an unknown student, that describes the magic that Hellis taught in his lessons. Very likely it is the same material he taught Hoffmann, Spielmann and Holden and that so impressed Devant. At last, one hundred and thirty seven years after the lessons were given and one hundred and fifteen years after the teacher died, you can discover why Hellis earned such a reputation in his day.

"Admittedly, this material can be classified as arcane. But it is delightfully so... Along with his previous annotated work, The Notebook, this volume establishes Will Houstoun as a new champion of magic's past. I look forward to seeing what he will uncover next." – MAGIC Magazine

This book is brilliant, telling the story of the genious Professor Hellis and the card magic of his time.The book might even give you new ideas and methods you never probably thought of.
Hellis in Wonderland is a must for anyone who wishes to study the history of card magic and the history of some of the most important magicians.
