Charles Bertram was the quintessential British Society Entertainer of the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. His appointment of ‘The Court Conjurer,’ and later ‘The King’s Conjurer,’ was a simple acknowledgment of his many appearances before Royalty, especially for Edward, Prince of Wales. For some twenty years Bertram enjoyed a remarkably close relationship for a commoner with a member of the Royal Family.
This is a beautiful, 360-page, illustrated, book, which wonderfully illustrates the life and times of Charles Bertram. It also includes a beautifully illustrated dust jacket. It explains his amazing life as the Court and the King of England’s conjurer and his contributions to the magic world. Another great addition to your magical library. Very interesting reading for the magical history buff. Also a lot of great old tricks are brought to life.
