Featured in Robert Albo’s History and Mystery of Magic (pp. 284, 394): “…by far the rarest piece in this collection and also the oldest. Eddy made this die box when he was just 14 years old. The earliest known surviving prop made by Taytelbaum, who was just 14 years old when he built the piece. The letters “M” on the chimney and box stand for the Great Magini, Taytelbaum’s boyhood performing name.
