Edgar Heyl

Edgar Heyl was born in Philadelphia in 1911. Educated as a chemical engineer, he has had many years experience in industrial research and development work.

His interest in conjuring began early in life as his father, the late Earle G. Heyl, had long been a semi-professional conjurer. Ultimately he began collecting conjuring books, but with the death of Leo Rullmann, he changed from collecting to dealing. Since 1948 he has issued over 70 catalogues, mostly on conjuring books.

In the course of his work with books, he began to carry out studies on various aspectsof conjuring bibliography. These resulted in numerous papers which appeared in some of the leading conjuring magazines.
