Sphinx

The Sphinx started in March 1902 and ended with the March 1953 issue - 52 volumes. It is arguably the most important magic magazine ever published.

William John Hilliar started it but quickly abandoned it leaving it in the hands of Inez Vernelo. In 1904 Albert Wilson takes editor ship and in 1930 John Mulholland takes the helm until its end in 1953.
