Package deal!

Can't decide which piece of DeLaMano's memorabilia to purchase? We've put together an amazing offer for you- a $375.00 value is yours for just $150.00!

This package includes five items used by DeLaMano, a 19th century traveling magician working in America. "De La Mano" means "of the hand"- in Italian.

The De La Mano French Magician Poster is a great example of 19th century magic advertising, with fantastic illustrations and fascinating copy!

The De La Mano Educated Pig Poster advertises a most unusual act- De La Mano's trained pig, who could count, spell and do math!

The Handbill advertises the wonders of magic that were performed by DeLaMano in his magic program. The handbill is two-sided, but you'll get two, so you can frame both together, displaying both the front and the back of the handbill!

The Souvenir Book is gorgeous, with a hand-tinted and hand-lacquered cover. Inside, you'll learn the secrets to dozens of magic tricks you can do (even though some sound pretty strange 135 years later)!

Posters and handbills like these were meant to be disposable items, freely distributed to advertise the show, and meant to be thrown away. Thus, such delicate pieces of magic history are rare to find today.

The DeLaMano material was discovered in 1987 by Peter Monticup, the owner of MagicTricks.com. Locked away in a trunk and hidden for over 100 years in the rafters of a barn in upstate New York, these advertising materials provide a rare link to the incredible story of a 19th century traveling magician.Read all about DeLaMano and the amazing discovery of his posters and personal magic items. These handbills and books were found still carefully wrapped in the original printer's invoice dated 1877.

Condition: very good- never folded. On the handbills, because the printing is on both sides, the ink has migrated through the paper. A note about condition: These items are in great condition for being over 100 years old, and being printed inexpensively on thin paper. Occasionally a handbill may have minor age spots, minor paper or ink fading, ink migration, minor paper discoloration and or slight chipping of the paper on the edges. But they all frame up nicely!

Please note: these are NOT reproductions- these are authentic pieces printed in 1877!
