Rameses the Egyptian Wonderworker was an illusionist of the Edwardian era. Born Albert Marchinski in Poland in 1876, he grew up in London in a distinctly middle class home. But as Rameses, he achieved financial and artistic successes beyond the dreams of most entertainers.

His fast moving, exciting and colorful illusions took him to the stage of London’s prestigious Palladium eight times. In addition, he played England’s top theaters and made triumphant tours of America South Africa and Europe. The highlight of his career was perhaps an appearance on the very first Royal Variety Performance attended by The King & Queen of England. Yet despite his theatrical triumphs, it was the stage that proved Rameses undoing.

Little has been written about Rameses’ life and magic despite his singular approach to illusions and a career most magicians would envy. Thanks to Chris Woodward’s diligent research, his story can now be told. Rameses the Forgotten Star tells a rags to riches story that ends back in rags that was heretofore unknown. Along the way, readers learn the secrets behind Rameses’ illusions (including his spectacular levitation), thrill at his theatrical conquests, and see how quickly that success slipped away.

Award-winning author Chris Woodward is a member of the Grand Order of Water Rats, and Gold Star Member of The Inner Magic Circle of London.

A 132 page deluxe clothbound edition, illustrated with rare photographs and memorabilia, color plates, and a satin bookmark ribbon.
