In its final sale of the year, Winter Magic: The Rex Conklin Library and Other Fine Conjuring Collections, Potter & Potter Auctions offers the remarkable library of the late Rex Conklin, whose collection is highlighted by rare blow books, a copy of Dean’s Hocus Pocus among other antiquarian titles, and unique signed copies of books by Houdini bearing related photographs and ephemera. Drawing from other collections, the auction features selections of fine conjuring apparatus, vintage posters, antique prints, and a bevy of photographs and ephemera you won’t find anywhere else, including an early twice-signed cabinet portrait of Harry Kellar.
The auction begins at 10:00 AM (CST) on Saturday, December 10, 2016. The digital catalogue is available for download. Previews take place in the gallery from November 30th – December 2nd from 10am-5pm.
Good luck to all those bidding.
