    This is an original "Brush The Great" stone lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. This scarce poster is a 1-sheet measuring approximately 28" x 42" and was printed by Goes Litho co. out of Chicago circa. 1920

    I have rescued this poster and had it professionally linen backed and restored as you can see from the "before" and "after" images above. This is one of the more rare Brush posters depicting a full length portrait of Brush, magic wand in hand, standing in front of a Moorish skyline. it is now in excellent condition!

    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.

      Thanks for the love, glad you can appreciate them. Take a look at the Restoration job on my 3-sheet Dante poster, that one is spectacular! Thanks for the compliment on my collection, much appreciated.

      Love the "before" and "after" pictures. Amazing what restoration can do for a piece of paper. Thanks for preserving it for future generations!
