I purchased this as a gift for a friend. It is a delightful look into the past of the greatest magicians of the Golden Era of Magic (late 19th - early 20th Century, Alexander Herrmann. It is his wife's hommage to him. A fascinating glimpse into their lives and the many theatrical stars, politicians and royalty that inhabited their circle.

These Memoirs were written in 1932 and lost for 79 years. They serendipitously surfaced and have finally seen the light of day as Mme. Herrmann wanted.

This book is so much fun. Adelaide Herrmann had an incredible life with her husband, Herrmann the Great, and she invites the reader to participate in it with her. If you are interested in an adventure, you find magic intriguing or you have any interest in early Hollywood moguls, vaudeville performers or other historical figures like Brigham Young and King Alphonso of Spain, this book is a must read. Travel with Adelaide, Herrmann and their animals. Find out how many of the tricks are performed, revel in their sumptuous life and her incredible outfits. Visit cities hardly discovered in the 19th c where Adelaide and Herrmann play, entertain and are treated like and honored by royalty. You will have almost as great a time as they did.
