The Rawlins Magic Collection I
Our inaugural magic auction of 2019 is the first of four sales from the collection of Jim Rawlins, a devoted student of magic and its history, who spent nearly three decades building an impressive, important, and diverse collection. A finely curated selection will go on the block, including choice objects in every collecting category. Association items from the careers of modern master magicians - Germain, Joseffy, Thurston, Blackstone, and more - will be offered side-by-side with vintage apparatus (including many Thayer and Owen-made props), signed photographs, posters, and ephemera. A strong selection of Houdiniana will also be featured. Click below to view a preview of the items to be sold.
Catalogs ship approximately three weeks before the auction. Previews will be held in our gallery Feb. 20—22, 10—5pm.
