Title: The Perfumed Garden: A Manual of Arabian Erotology
Author: Sheikh Nefzawi
Publisher: Les Publications Parisiennes
City: Paris
Year: Unknown
Binding Style: Hardcover
Pagination: 191 pages
Width: 6" Height: 9"
Book Details: The book presents opinions on what qualities men and women should have to be attractive, gives advice on sexual technique, warnings about sexual health, and recipes to remedy sexual maladies. It gives lists of names for the penis and vagina, has a section on the interpretation of dreams, and briefly describes sex among animals. Interspersed with these there are a number of stories which are intended to give context and amusement.

The book first became widely known in the English speaking world through a translation from the French in 1886 by Sir Richard Francis Burton. The Arabic manuscript that Burton translated from was one printed by Isadore Liseux in 1886. This manuscript's last chapter, twenty one, was incomplete, apparently because it concerned homosexuality and pederasty. When Burton died towards the end of 1890, he was working on a new translation of the original manuscript, including the excised chapter. This translation, due to be called "The Scented Garden" was never published as Burton's wife Isabel burned the manuscript soon after his death.

Born in Buffalo, New York, in 1923, Penney acquired his BA from Yale University in 1965, a law degree from the University of Virginia in 1951, and in 1995 he was honored with a Doctorate of Fine Arts from the State University of New York for his life-long support for the arts. Dr. Penney received many other awards for his continuing contributions in this field.

Dr. Penney began collecting art by Western New Yorkers in the mid-30's, eventually collecting more than 100,000 objects that he kept and researched in his own home. Dr. Penney loaned his artwork extensively throughout Western New York and the rest of the world. In the early 1990s, he donated his collection of Western New York art to the Burchfield Art Center at Buffalo State College. As a result, the center was renamed the Burchfield-Penney Art Center to memorialize his generous and landmark donation.

Title: Elliott's Last Legacy: Secrets of the King of All Kings. Many Tricks That Have Mystified the Best Magicians of the World, Laid Bare for the First Time, together with Many Novel Inventions, Taken from Note Books Left by Dr. James William Elliott. Edited by Houdini
Author: James William Elliott - Dr. James William Elliott was a physician from Rumford, Maine who went on to become an accomplished magician.

He was the treasurer for the Magic Mystic Fraternity, one of the only magical society in existence at the time in 1898. He contributed to "New Era Card Tricks" and amongst professional card players of his time he was called "The Boston Kid."

In September of 1898, he published in "Mahatma" a challenge in which any-man in the world to dispute his claim to the title "Champion Card Manipulator of the World". He offered up to a $10,000 prize, a claim which was never accepted nor disputed.

He is believed to be the inventor of the Back Palm with cards which he taught to T. Nelson Downs. According to Dai Vernon in his Vernon Touch column for Genii 1982 March, Elliott was the first to see the Back Palm performed by a Mexican gambler in Beadles' Magic Ship in New York, then went on to create his version.

Editor: Clinton Burgess - Clinton Burgess, born in Philadelphia, a descendant of a New York Governor, Dewitt Clinton, was a champion card conjurer.

For thirty years Burgess was a professional conjurer, operating his own entertainment bureau. He was co-owner of Metropolitan Bureau of Magic with Robert H. Elroy. His first stage appearance was at the Majestic Hall, New York City in 1898 and he made his professional debut at Pastor's Theatre, New York City in 1902.

He edited Elliott's "Last Legacy" (1923) with Harry Houdini, which led to a bitter break between the two when Houdini ended up taking most of the credit. Burgess was very involved in magic societies including being secretary for The National Conjurers' Association and a charter member of the Brotherhood of Magicians and member No. 8 of the IBM.

Harry Houdini (born Erik Weisz, later Ehrich Weiss or Harry Weiss; March 24, 1874 – October 31, 1926) was a Hungarian-born American stunt performer, noted for his sensational escape acts. He first attracted notice as Handcuff Harry, on a tour of Europe, where he would sensationally challenge different police-forces to try to keep him locked up. This revealed a talent for gimmickry and for audience involvement that would characterise all his work. Soon he was extending his repertoire to include chains, ropes slung from skyscrapers, straitjackets under water, and having to hold his breath inside a sealed milk-can.

In 1904, thousands watched as he tried to escape from a special handcuff commissioned by London's Daily Mirror, keeping them in suspense for an hour. Another stunt saw him buried alive and only just able to claw himself to the surface, emerging in a state of near-breakdown. While many suspected that these escapes were fabricated, it is ironical that Houdini was meanwhile presenting himself as the scourge of fake magicians and spiritualists. As President of the Society of American Magicians, he was keen to uphold professional standards and expose fraudulent artists who gave practitioners a bad name. He was also quick to sue anyone who pirated his own escape-stunts.

Houdini made a number of movies, but quit acting when it failed to bring in money. He was also a keen aviator, and aimed to become the first man to fly a plane in Australia, but according to the official definition of sustained flight, he was beaten to it by two others. Even the circumstances of his death were dramatic and mysterious. According to one version, a student in Montreal asked him if his stomach was hard enough to take any blow, to which he replied that it was, whereupon the student rained a series of blows on it before Houdini had had time to tense up. A few days later, he died of a ruptured appendix. But this may have been unconnected, as he had already been suffering appendicitis and refusing to seek medical attention.
