Notes
Servais Le Roy "Inventor Of All That Is Great In Magic" Cachet Envelope

From the envelope: Jean Henri Servais Le Roy (1865-1953) was a great entertainer and inventor of magic. Magicians still perform his Asrah illusion in which a lady is levitated and then vanished in mid-air. Le Roy was born in Belgium and with his wife "Talma" and a comic addition called "Bosco" they headed a full evening show and toured the world. Le Roy died in Keansburg, New Jersey where he had stored his show and lived his last days in the memory of his past accomplishments. He was a classic magician and could always be recognized b his long pointed mustache. He was a graceful man and performer. He was equally at home with large illusions or multiplying playing cards between his fingers. His wife Talma did a remarkable coin act and they were billed as the "Monarchs of Magic." (Poster courtesy of William V. Rauscher). Released on November 5, 1994 at Yankee Gathering V.
