Description

Alexander and Adelaide Herrmann Signatures

Alexander Herrmann (1844–1896), better known as Herrmann the Great, was a French magician widely considered the world’s greatest. The wife and former assistant of Hermann the Great, Adelaide Herrmann (1853-1932), became a major star in her own right when, following her husband’s death, she opted to continue the show, routinely performing the duo’s staple trick, the bullet catch. Wonderful pair of fountain pen signatures from the French husband-and-wife magicians, including: Alexander Herrmann, “Herrmann,” on an off-white slip; and “Adelaide Herrmann,” on an off-white 4 x 3.75 Christmas greeting card. Both signatures are matted and framed to overall sizes of 10.75 x 21 and 16.25 x 25. In overall fine condition, with minimal soiling to the Alexander. The James Collings Collection. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
