About

A poster for a Victorian show: Dr Cramer's Illusions at Berner's Hall, the Royal Agricultural Hall, Islington. The marvellous automatic whist player & conjuror, mental arithmetician, orthographer and clairvoyant. Acetos, the great dynamic mystery. An automatic figure, 26 inches high, seated on a box, and insulated on a glass pedestal.

This poster is part of the Evanion Collection, held by the British Library, and consisting of over 5000 pamphlets, handbills and miscellaneous printed matter relating to Victorian entertainment and everyday life, collected by the stage magician and ventriloquist Henry Evans, also known as Evanion.
