Although Professor Hellis performed in venues such as The Royal Polytechnic Institution and The Brighton Aquarium, gave lessons to Professor Hoffman and Dr. Holden, and was admired by David Devant, little has been written about him.
This book changes that.
Now you can read and study Hellis' magic exactly as he taught his students. The content is based on a handwritten notebook from Peter Lane's collection, written by Hellis and an unknown student, which describes the magic Hellis taught in his lessons. This book contains the material likely taught to Professor Hoffman and Dr. Holden - all of which impressed Devant. At last, 137 years after the lessons were given and 115 years after the teacher died, you can discover why Hellis earned such a reputation in his day.
