Mr Berscheid (the father)

June 1895

Only 10 years after the first black art’s experiments and presentations, a German businessman, being also an amateur magician, named M. Berscheid, travels the world. He is buying cork and other raw materials.

Curious about everything, he watches around him, thinks and dreams of magic. An idea comes to his mind : it is the “black art” without knowing it was already invented !

During the following years, he builds up his technique and becomes a professional magician. He is touring with a company which goes up to 6 persons, including his wife.
