RAMESES-A most outstanding and VERY RARE MAGIC poster



RARE  **  RARE  **  RARE


A most outstanding and VERY RARE poster, litho by Moody Bros UK. Measures an impressive 87 1/2 by 78 inches. 
Condition A- minor with minor expert restoration, otherwise fresh and bright. A very striking and high impact portrait of Rameses, real name Albert Marchinsky, who was the most successful of the followers of Chung Ling Soo, impersonating Far or Near East magicians at the turn of the Century.
He was usually billed as "The Great Egyptian Magician". Was very successful in the US and also England . Had a great knowledge, as a former actor, of the theatre which gave him his quick rise to fame in the Magic field. Chung Ling Soo was in command of the British Chinese magic  market at the time so Marchinsky decided to become an Egyptian. He wore the very colorful and mysterious robes of an Egyptian priest and took on the name of Rameses.
He first appeared in Dublin in 1909, a year later at the Coliseum in London. Martin Beck, the american impresario was so impressed with his performance that he booked him for a tour of the US, Orpheum theater circuit, in 1910. Rameses toured the West and Midwest, Chicago, St Louis and Indianapolis was known for his very rapid performance, performing twice as many illusions in the same time period as his American conterparts.
After a very successful tour in the US, he returned to England, and appeared before the King and Queen in 1917. After the untimely death of Chung Ling Soo in 1918, Rameses  continued to perform more successfully in the prime theaters in the UK. Headlined the Stoll Theaters in London in 1920 and in 1923 joined the very successful Maskelynes. Rameses died in the south end of London July 31, 1930, left with little money after unwise investments in Theater ventures.
