A promotional poster for Harry Kellar, an internationally-renown illusionist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Often referred to as the “Dean of American Magicians,” he performed on five continents and nurtured the career of Howard Thurston, whom he named as his successor. His best-known illusions included “The Levitation of the Princess Karnac,” “The Nested Boxes,” and “The Vanishing Lamp.” He last appeared in a benefit organized by Harry Houdini at the Hippodrome in 1917. When it was time for him to leave, Houdini paid him tribute as “America’s greatest magician,” having him carried from the theater on a sedan chair as the 125-piece orchestra played “Auld Lang Syne.”
