    "De La Mano, the Champion Prestidigitateur, Is Coming." Magic Show Advertising Poster, Circa 1877. "Abidextrous Comedian, Arch Illusionist and Humorist." 14" x 42", on lightweight yellow paper, printed by The Courier Company Show Printing House of Buffalo, New York. Born Zell Dreitzehn to a wealthy Austrian circus-owning family, De La Mano was a skillful illusionist who toured Europe for decades before coming to the United States in 1876. It was on his third tour of this country, in 1882, that he mysteriously disappeared while investigating psychic phenomena at a farm in Westerlo, New York. A great poster with terrific graphic appeal. One horizontal fold, one tiny hole, and two short edge tears at right margin repaired on verso, else fine.
