Tolmaque, Herr. Great Indian Rope Feat! Edinburgh: Reid, 1862. Blue letterpress broadside advertising a variety show, including a performance of “The Great Indian Rope Feat” by Herr Tolmaque. Framed to an overall size of 34 x 14 ½”. Old folds visible. A. The Great Indian Rope Feat advertised here is not a variation of the notorious Indian Rope Trick. Instead, it is a feat of escape magic, which did not come into popularity until Houdini’s rise to prominence, nearly decades after Herr Tolmaque’s advertised performances.
