Magic: The Collection of Larry Jennings
Larry Jennings was the consummate magician, and one of Dai Vernon's most accomplished and talented students. His collection of magic memorabilia, books, and apparatus is now being offered for sale. Among the items going on the block are unusual, and signed books (among them the ultimate association copy of Erdnase's Expert at the Card Table); apparatus and props used by Jennings and Dai Vernon; and memorabilia, including autographs, photographs, and correspondence. Complementing the Jennings material is a host of magic material from various consignors. Among the highlights of the balance of the sale are Jay Marshall's "Lefty" glove puppet, Houdini memorabilia, posters, and early magic apparatus.
