OUR YOUNG FOLKS MAGAZINE * EARLY MAGIC TRICK ; ' THE SPHINX - A MYSTERY ' * 1866

This is the November, 1866 issue of this magazine - Number 23 .

In addition to the magic trick mentioned in my title, this old magazine for children includes an advertisement for MARSHALL'S PORTRAIT OF LINCOLN, with endorsements / testimonials from Lincoln's son, Robert, ; Vice President, Hamlin, along with those of other notables and dignitaries of the day .

Getting back to the magic trick, ' The Sphinx - A Mystery ', it was invented by Thomas Tobin in 1865 . At least that's what I've been able to gather in the brief research I did on it .
