Marco's Comments:
This is the book with Sam Sharpe's research on Robert-Houdin which he tried to have published since 1948. The material appeared in The Linking Ring and was finally collated in a book by Micky Hades. The book comes from the collection of Jim Alfredson and it's signed by Sharpe to Alfredson, and it has a number of correction of dates and names in the genealogy at the end of the book. The book contains a page's advertisement from Micky Hades and includes S-00192
