#TeachNYPL #Houdini More treasures from our archives - a letter from Harry Houdini to NYPL President John Shaw Billings in 1911. The letter begins, "Dear Sir, In going through your card indexes yesterday, I noted that the Conjurer's magazine was missing..." Harry Houdini then kindly offered two bound sets of the Conjurer's Magazine to be added to the NYPL Collection -- along with a book on handcuffs written in Russian and German.
