    This is an original Edwin Brush lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. This poster advertised Brush's Magic show in China and dates to ca. 1920 This poster is a bit unusual for its time as it was printed in only 1 color being red and printed on more of a brown colored craft paper stock. This poster is a half-sheet, and is in EXCELLENT condition.

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
    "American Big Professional Magic, Brush. Big Magic with Pei Bing, Boyscout, all come to stage for performance".

    Edwin Brush was one of the most popular Chautauqua and Lyceum entertainers of the 20th century. As a sales manager of a Chicago based clothing manufacturing company, Brush used pocket tricks to help boost sales and found the practice exceedingly successful. He later turned to Magic full time and performed until his death at the age of 93. His distinguishing characteristic was his trademark upside-down mustache; he actually cut and trained his mustache hair to grow straight up, defying the laws of gravity and creating a rather unique appearance.
