MagicWeek brings us the news that some of Dai Vernon and Bruce Cervon’s personal possessions and props are up for auction next year.
I don’t know about you, but I hate to think of this stuff ending up in the grubby hands of a private collector (which unfortunately will probably be the case).
These things belong in a museum somewhere, somewhere where anyone who’s interested in the history of magic can appreciate them.
The auction starts on 30/01/2010. ….if only I had the money…
