Found on EBay – A. Victor Segno

I have a soft spot for turn-of-the-century charlatan A. Victor Segno. This image of him is included in a copy of “Law of Mentalism” listed on EBay. Segno’s scheme was to have people mail him $1 in exchange for sending out a “success wave” and judging by the rare stamps that turn up at auction he was incredibly successful.  He was also the author of “How to Have Beautiful Hair.” Bidding on “Law of Mentalism” starts at $9.99.
