Willard the Wizard

  • LI0161

Broadside advertising Willard the Wizard and his Company in a Bewildering Oriental Production. Includes section about Nellie Davenport. Toned with some chips to margins, old folds. Paper color may vary. Harry Willard was one of three men in his family to make magic his profession. Rumor has it he was not the only member of his family to use this broadside to advertise his show. Apparently first printed at the turn of the century, the Willard family, ever economical, reused the same billing material for decades in their tours, which crisscrossed the American South season after season, playing under large canvas tents.
