Professor Alba, Original Magic Hypnotist Psychic Poster

AlbaProfessor Alba; ca 1959.  Original Stone Lithograph Magic Poster (13 x 27″), (33 x 68 cm)  Professor Alba towards the end of his career toured with Yu-Li-San,  a famous female mentalist. He was a magician, hypnotist and psychic. He actually came from a family of magicians; his father Manolo Alba was an inspiration and succeeded his father’s show following his death. When his father died in 1950, the younger Alba took over the successful show, and toured with it until his own death seventeen years later. The tag line on the bottom, “Il Hombre Que Juega Con La Muerte”, translates to, “The Man Who Plays With Death”.

The poster is in very good to fine condition except on the bottom right corner margin there is some tears with hanging paper. There is a tear on the top margin and one on the left margin; each is less than 1″. These features would vanish after linen backing.

Condition C7. Price $275
