THE SILENCE OF CHUNG LING SOO DELUXE LIMITED EDITION THE SILENCE OF CHUNG LING SOO DELUXE LIMITED EDITION NO. 16 of only 75 copies printed WRITTEN BY TODD KARR AND PUBLISHED BY THE MIRACLE FACTORY IN 2001 Probably the most intriguing conjurer of magic's Golden Age, William Robinson, under his stage name Chung Ling Soo, thrilled and mystified laymen and magicians alike throughout the four corners of the world. This conjuring giant bought his ticket to magic immortality through his on-stage death attempting the bullet-catch trick - A dramatic end to a life that was, at the same time, both strange and ingenius. This is number 16 of 75 of the beautifully illustrated Leatherbound Deluxe Limited Edition from the Miracle Factory. This book is in pristine condition in it's black lacquered case as issued. Only the absence of the brittle wax seal from the brass disc affixed to the tie ribbons of the case prevents me from designating it as MINT! Many collectors believe that this book is the Miracle Factory's Biographical Magnum Opus. 488 pp Filled with photographs, including a full color gallery of many of Soo's lithographs, this book is an extremely absorbing read as well as a research resource of the very first order.
