These earliest issues of the official organ of the Society of American Magicians are extremely rare. Under the editorships Charles Roltare, R. Van Dien, Harry Houdini, and Lionel Hartley, these first 16 volumes ran from 1911 through 1927, after which point the M-U-M became an insert in the Sphinx until it reemerged as an independent publication in 1951. Many issues contain articles written with information from Houdini’s own research files that is not available anywhere else. There are also accounts of board meetings, banquets, who’s working where, financial reports, and general gossip that make for very interesting reading.
