Breslaws Last Legacy

Philip Breslaw was a German conjurer who came to England in the early 1760's. Houdini, in his unmasking of Robert Houdin, quoted newspaper clippings in his collection, dated 1781, showing that Breslaw featured the "Cabalistic Clock" and demonstrations of "Second-Sight," both later claimed by Robert-Houdin as his originations.
Programs and newspaper ads proclaim that Breslaw would give puzzling performances utilizing such objects as rings, sleeve buttons, purses, swords, cards, dice, thoughts, watches, numbers, and a leg of mutton. His effect with the last item may be best left to imagination. This excerpt, which comes from the Forward of this neat little book, gives you an idea of thetreat that you are in for when reading through this reprint. It has paradoxes and many effectsof the late, great, Breslaw. Treat yourself to this 144 page hardbound treat.
