    Madame Adelaide Herrmann was a superstar of the Golden Age of Magic. With her husband, Alexander Herrmann, she developed the first Grand Illusion show, which they performed in Europe and the
    Americas for twenty-two years. After Alexander's sudden death in 1896, Adelaide re-opened the
    show six weeks later at New York's Metropolitan Opera House. In 1899 she made her solo debut in Vaudeville as America's only professional female magician, a career she maintained successfully for twenty-eight years.

    While Adelaide Herrmann was known to have written a memoir, it did not appear after her death in 1932. The memoir, entitled "Sixty-Five Years of Magic," finally surfaced in 2010. It reveals much new information about the magical Herrmann dynasty, including details of the tempestuous relationship between the brothers, Alexander and Compars Herrmann. Madame takes readers behind the scenes of the spectacular Herrmann show, providing a close-up portrait of the great Alexander Herrmann and giving new insights into his personality and his magic. She tells of her own career as a dancer, trick bicyclist, illusion partner and, finally, as a magician in her own right.

    The memoir is a story of adventure, romance and perseverance, set in the context of one of the greatest magic shows of all time.
