Our October sale features choice automata, magic memorabilia, apparatus, posters, and books from the collection of David M. Baldwin.
A lifelong lover of all things magic related, Mr. Baldwin amassed an enviable collection of genuinely rare and fine objects. Among the sale highlights will be Robert-Houdin mystery clocks, Lambert-made automatons, and a large portion of the Raymond/Gibson collection of magic memorabilia and apparatus. Additional treasures from the Baldwin collection include early broadsides, Houdini memorabilia, Taytelbaum and other micro-magic props, Okito-made apparatus, photographs, ephemera, and personal artifacts owned by great magicians of the 19th and 20th centuries.
