Rare Harry Houdini Signed 1918 Book Contract JSA Authentication:
Harry Houdini became the world’s most celebrated magician who enthralled audiences through his daring and unbelievable escapes. He was also an author, actor, director, and even an aviation pioneer, becoming the first person to fly in Australia.
This two page contract, dated August 20th, 1918, is between Houdini and Angelo Lewis who’s literary alias is noted as ‘Professor Hoffman.’ A two page agreement giving Houdini the right to represent Lewis’s new book. On the designated line, on the second page, Harry Houdini boldly signs his name in black with steel-tip fountain pen.
Next to this remarkable two page contract is a copy photo, depicting Houdini looking powerful in a beautiful five piece suit.
Below the documents and photo we've included a quote from Houdini that speaks to his mindset. A man in constant battle to out do what he has done before. A man striving for perfection.
“I always have on my mind the thought that next year I must do something greater, something more wonderful.”
All of this is beautifully framed in our hand built, contemporary, wide frame, enhanced with professional white matting.
