    This is an original stone lithograph window card for Newmann The Great, from my private collection of Magic posters ca.1920. Printed by Standard ST. Paul.

    Simply a great striking image that depicts a portrait of Newmann with electricity shooting out of two hands above his head, symbolizing his mentalist powers! This window card came from the Newmann estate.

    C.A. Newmann(November 28, 1880 - December 29, 1952), also known as Newmann the Great, was a hypnotist and pioneer mentalist. Newmann was born during the pioneer days when Indian uprisings, bank robberies and highway holdups were frequent occurrences. By the age of 13, Newmann The Boy Wonder was presenting an hypnotic and mind-reading show.

    For many years he limited the majority of his performances to the Northern Middle Western States, returning to the same cities year after year. For many summer seasons he gave his performances in his own tent. Newmann was primarily a mentalist who specializes in unusual, high class mental presentations, although he also presents a few illusions, such as the Levitation, The Spirit Paintings, and similar effects, in connection with his regular program. However, for over 35 years his program was composed only of Hypnotic and Mind Reading effects. He also featured the "Blindfold Drive", an amazing task that allowed him to drive an automobile to a specific destination while being blindfolded!

      I dont know why but this style of old posters have an incredible power when you watch them. I think that all moderns effects will cant copy them never.
      Thanks for share, very interesting comment as well.

      I am thrilled you enjoy this poster, it is one of my favorites as well and took me 3 years to finally locate one. Yes, your comments are always appreciated and I never get upset when they are posted, good or bad. I have met a few collectors in person from CW and always looking to meet more.

      Should you girls find yourselves in the Los Angeles area in the future, I would like you to be my guests at The Magic Castle here in Hollywood. This is an open invitation for ANYONE here on CW that would like to entertain themselves with a night of Magic at the Castle. Contact me anytime fellow collectors.
    8. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      Oh that's cool zguy! Thank you!
    9. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 7 years ago
      Yes, really cool zguy! Thanks so much for your invitation!

      while not as lovely as Jewels and Virginia, I can say that ZGuy is awesome to hang out with and see the Castle. And such a teacher of this amazing and underappreciated art form.
    11. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      LOL @ wrightarchtecture! Although not as lovely as the ladies, you do have serious class and good taste my friend! Musso & Frank and Magic go very well together. We must hang together again soon. And you ladies are invited:)
    12. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      Thanks guys! Sounds like a great time! My brother lives in Los Angeles, but we just recently visited, so next time :)
    13. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      The Magic Castle is a private club in Hollywood that offers Magic shows from around the world to its members and guests. It is a Hollywood landmark. Google it and check it out. A MUST do for anyone who love Magic.

      this is great buddy!! :)
    15. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Zguy - are you serious? I live here - well further south in Long Beach and have always wanted to go to the Magic Castle. Most recently I've watched Magic Castle featured on episode 23 of Freakshow (Netflix) and I know it's an invitation only event.

      What do I need to do?
    16. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      Thanks SEAN68, much appreciated buddy. Hope you are well.
    17. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      valentino97, yes very serious. I am more than happy to give you a guest pass for the Magic Castle. There are strict rules, regulations, and dress codes so please visit the Magic Castle website and read about it. Then if you would still like to go, email me and I will be more than happy to give you a pass so you can visit. My email address is on my profile.

      Thank you - will check it out!
    19. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      I love this graphic! I know you collect magic images but have you bought the USPS vintage circus posters stamps yet? How am I going to be able to use these? I love snail mail - I actually mail postcards to friends and family just because. And I try to put a cool stamp that relates to them. My niece in Baraboo, Wisconsin is tired of my circus references but I can't help it. A very cool town and museum.
    20. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      I collect Circus posters as well valentino97, a few of them are posted here in my CW collection and yes I bought a few packs of the Circus poster stamps from the USPS. I always like to use cool stamps as well, that's why I buy a few packs so I have extras to use for a bit.
    21. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Yes I thought you had some Circus posters on here too. Aren't these wonderful stamps? Have you been to the Ringling Circus World Museum in Baraboo? It is a great museum full of posters and they have lots of the old wagons.
    22. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      They are in deed wonderful, I have not been to the museum but do know about it. I would love to go sometime! There are a few Magic museums as well around the country that are truly amazing! Especially David Copperfield's private museum that houses Houdini's original Water Torture Cell.
    23. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      David Copperfield's museum in Las Vegas? I have to check it out next time am there. I haven't forgotten about your invitation to the Magic Castle. Busy w/work now and want make this a very special trip.

      I'm sure you'd enjoy the Circus World Museum. An easy flight into Madison and a short drive from there.

      What other magic museums around the country do you like?
    24. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      valentino97, I am sorry to say that Copperfield's Magic museum is truly private. He only admits students of Magic and Magic historians into his museum. It is located in an undisclosed warehouse in the Nevada desert. As far as Magic museums open to the public there is The American Museum of Magic located in Marshall, Michigan that you can visit or go online and find some that may be closer to your home.
    25. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Well - in the true sense of magic, a mystery where Copperfield's museum is located. Somewhere in the Nevada desert....

      Thanks about Marshall, MI museum - will visit on my next road trip to the Midwest.
