Houdini, Amsterdam Jail Cell, 1903 1 sheet, Atelier J. Zier, mounted on paper, noticeable stain with small hole on creases. Handsomely framed. 38.5" x 27.5" Houdini went to Europe at the turn of the Century to become a headliner, and after six years abroad, he returned to the U.S. in triumph. One of his pioneering public relations & flair for engendering publicity stunts was to challenge major city police jails and then herald his escape from these impregnable confinement institutions. This is an extremely rare poster, and only a few others are known to exist at this time. NO RESERVE
