Harry Houdin: The Great Polynational Mimic

If you’re into magic history at all, check out the short, free e-book I just published on the virtually unknown 19th-century magician and mimic, Harry Houdin (not a typo). You can download it onto your iPad, Kindle, etc., on the following page: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240984.

Here’s a quick blurb from the Smashwords page:

Introducing Harry Houdin—one of the most versatile performers you’ve never heard of. Born decades before the great Harry Houdini, he claimed to be the nephew of Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin, the famous French conjurer of the 19th century.

Houdin, who billed himself as “The Great Polynational Mimic,” toured Australia and New Zealand between 1860 and 1863 with a one-man act featuring drawing-room magic and international impersonations done to song and dance.

Harry Houdin: “The Great Polynational Mimic” is the first formal work of research written about this virtually unknown, albeit colorful, entertainer.
