Huge collection of magic memorabilia from the Keith Abson Collection up for auction

May 23, 2018

Keith Abson spent his life obsessed with magic, performing  throughout Australia and collecting a variety of posters, books, flyers and more, which he kept in an ever-growing scrapbook – and now that collection is up for auction at Lawson’s.

The collection features a variety of curios from the golden age of magic, including old issues of Tops Magazine, a ton of books written by Professor Hoffman, and a few dozen different scrapbooks filled with magic history, trick instruction, and other ephemera, compiled and annotated by Abson himself.

Online pre-bidding is still open on the Lawson Auction website, but you’ll have to be at the auction house in New South Wales, Australia to bid in person on Friday, May 25.
