Exceedingly rare original hand-out admission leaflet/ pole broadside announcing the grand appearance of “Professor Boone the Great” while being assisted by Master Douglas Boone known as the "Boy Phenomenon" the youngest mind reader in the World, appearing at the Academy of Music in Norfolk, Virginia on October 13-14. Also noted on this pole broadside is the Modern Witch of Endor; Cladys Livington. Interestingly enough l could not find any information on Professor Boone and Douglas Boone. The feats that are listed in this fascinating broadside go beyond spectacular to supernatural, the multiple claims include hypnotizing thousands, healing the sick and crippled, too actually bringing the death back to life! Those claims are seemingly sustained in the leaflet where over 100,000 people in Indianapolis, Indiana and Lexington, Kentucky witnessed Professor Boone successfully bring people back to life after being buried for several days in both cities. Another highlight of the performance was told of a lady hypnotized into a cataleptic sleep while resting inside a crystal casket on display at a store show window. In addition Professor Boone has promised to have his eyes blind-folded while driving two fast horses in a cab while finding any article hidden in the city! The claims and feats of wonder are well documented throughout the leaflet and offer one little doubt that Prof. Boone and Master Douglas Boone cannot be stopped on any feat or endeavor.
In fact a reward of $1,000 dollars is offered to anyone who can prove any of his feats are fraudulent. I’m certain they got out of Dodge before that reward was ever paid.
In closing this would be a quality addition to any collection
