The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy

David Phelps Abbott

The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy by David Phelps AbbottJoseffy, Josef P. Freud, was a magician from Vienna, Austria. He came to the US when he was 19 years old, and initially worked as manufacturer of props and apparatus for a magic shop in Chicago. Eventually he designed and built his own unexplainable creations, several of which are described in this ebook. However, only the effects are given, no methods are described.
