Ten Problems in Algeria by Jim Steinmeyer
Pinetti: New Discoveries, Part 2 by Francois Bost
Early Conjuring in Old Mexico and the New Spain by Enrique Jimenez-Martinez
We are thrilled to present issue 26 of Gibecière. The Summer 2018 issue is introduced with remarkable information, photos and a fresh evaluation of one of conjuring’s best known, exciting historical tales: how Robert Houdin saved French Algiers from a violent uprising of native marabouts by Jim Steinmeyer. The reader is then transported by Francois Bost to Prussia with the second installment in a series of new discoveries about Giuseppe Pinetti, highlighting his amazing and impressive career. At the conclusion of this issue, Enrique Jimenez-Martinez presents remarkably fascinating information on indigenous conjurers and conjuring in precolonial and Spanish-dominated Mexico in the culmination of more than 20 years of research on the subject. Gibeciere includes new, exciting articles from each of its contributors. We hope you will enjoy.
