Victorian illustration to download showing a performance by a clairvoyant. A blindfolded woman sits at the centre of a stage, while her partner collects items from the amused and absorbed audience so that she can say what the items are. This was Monsieur Henri Robin (1811-74), a celebrated illusionist, and his wife, who performed in London in 1851.
