This is a biography of Chris Van Bern (1872? - 1950) christened The Busy 'B' by The Magician Monthly
in 1911 because of his versatility as a variety performer. His presentations were original and he was something of a 'character'. He became a member of so many local magic clubs throughout the UK that it is believed his record has never been surpassed by anyone. He was Honorary Vice President, for example, of The Modern Mystic League (Blackburn & District Society of Magicians), and The Order of The Magi (Manchester). A generous man to all magicians he co-authored A Whirlwind of Wizadry
with De Vega. His career lasted over 40 years. The ebook tries to bring together as much information as could be found about this fascinating personality. The ebook should be of interest to all students of magic history and biography.
