Grossman, well-known as a writer and authority on all subjects magic-related, also served as president of the Magic Collectors Association for years. He assembled a remarkable collection of early conjuring books, catalogs, lithographs, ephemera and apparatus. The bulk of Grossman's holdings were acquired by Nelson Nicholson, who maintained, enhanced, and cared for the collection. Now a choice grouping of items from this famous collection will be offered for sale at public auction - on Halloween, in our Chicago gallery.

Among the featured items in the sale are early and rare broadsides and playbills, unique and rare stone lithographs, early books and catalogs, magic-themed sheet music from the 19th century, photographs, periodicals, and much more.
