    This is an original Thurston stone lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters ca. 1918 and is extremely rare! I have been waiting for years to acquire one of these into my collection and the opportunity finally arrived.

    This lithograph titled, "Do The Spirits Come Back?" is 1-sheet in size and the strong image and subject matter makes this poster one of the most sought after by collectors. It is a visually stunning example of advertising during the golden age of Magic! This is one of my most prized posters in my collection.

    Howard Thurston was America's most popular magician from approximately 1908 until his death in 1936. His lithographs were primarily produced by two companies, first Strobridge of Cincinnati and later Otis of Cleveland. This poster is the later version.
