The Amazing Harry Kellar
Great American MagicianBook - 2012
With a flair for entertaining and a knack for self-promotion, Harry Kellar always promised a spectacular show. And he never disappointed. Kellar read minds, floated women in the air, and escaped from knotted ropes in seconds. Known throughout the world, he was a conjurer extraordinaire! Author Gail Jarrow shines the spotlight on this nearly forgotten magical wizard and his dazzling illusions. Working with experts and relying on Kellar's own words and promotional posters, she reveals a man who is still celebrated and respected by magicians today. Kellar performed for kings and queens, presidents and emperors--and now he performs for you.
