Happy Birthday Robert-Houdin: Dec. 6, 1805

By Tom Interval

I meant to post this image on Saturday. On that day 209 years ago, the pioneering French conjurer, Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin, was born. Robert-Houdin is known as the “father of modern magic” and is the man whose name young Ehrich Weiss would borrow 85 years later to become Harry Houdini.
