About Professor Hoffmann

Professor Hoffmann is the pen name of London-born Angelo John Lewis (1839-1919). A barrister by vocation, Professor Hoffmann was by avocation a magician. We are indebted to him for the books he wrote about magic, especially Modern Magic (1876), More Magic (1889), and Later Magic (1903). Professor Hoffmann was the first person to really teach people in English how to perform magic tricks for entertainment. We owe a debt of gratitude to Professor Hoffmann not only for his own writings, but for translating the works of Robert-Houdin, "The Father of Modern Magic," from the original French into English: The Secrets of Conjuring and Magic (1877) and The Secrets of Stage Conjuring (1881). Houdini (1874-1926) described Professor Hoffmann as “the Brightest Star in the Firmament of Magical Literature.” ( )
