George Newmann was one of the true mystery men of magic. To three generations of Americans in the heartland, Newmann the Great and his show of hypnotism, mentalism, fun and wonders meant first-class entertainment. Alfredson offers glimpses of all phases of Newmanns life, from the early blindfold buggy ride stunts to the big show under the tent, through his last irascible years waging war with rival magic book collectors or recalling with admiration his fellow road show performers. The 88-page, 6 x 9 book is handsomely printed and bound, stamped in silver foil, and illustrated throughout with photographs, posters and examples of Newmanns varied advertising art. The second edition is limited to 250 copies.
