Murray - The Marco Polo of Magic (Signed)

  • MB0329.jpg

Murray Walters, an Australian magician, may have traveled the world more extensively than any other magician of his time according to this fascinating new biography. An accomplished escape artist and illusionist, he traveled the world extensively with an ever-expanding stage production. Many a colleague opined that his death-defying stunts and escapes rivaled those of Harry Houdini. Based on the records, props, and scrapbooks in the Davenport collection, author Fergus Roy paints an interesting picture of Murray and his career, expanding on and correcting information in the only other published work about this noted twentieth century magician. The biographical information is exhaustive and well-rounded, and accompanied by may illustrations, some of which have not previously seen print. The book concludes with a reprint of the uncommon Murray 'pitch' book printed in the 1950s which explains some twenty magic tricks. According to Ye Old Magic Mag, this work is "A fascinating read. Recommended." Pictorial wrappers, illustrated copiously with ful color photographs, 244 pages. Signed by the author.
