The above item comes from Michael Whitecar, and is the price list that was given to all interested buyers from Doug’s farewell auction in 1989.
It’s interesting to note how the general common misconception is that Doug gave away his illusions for very little to nothing. My apologies for the small print in the document, but the prices are as listed:
Fountain Levitation:$60,000 King Tut Transposition: $55,000 Miracle Levitation Vanish: $45,000 Walking Through a Mirror: $40,000 Fire Tunnel Transposition: $35,000 Surrounded Man without a Middle: $30,000 Floating Kiddie Car: $25,000 Double Sawing in Half: $20,000 Fire Dome Girl Production : $15,000 Lady to Tiger: $10,000 Three Jarrett Pedestals: $9,000 Shadow Box Production: $7,000 Metamorphosis Box: $6,000 Mismade Lady: $5,000 Sword Levitation: $4,000 Girl without a Middle: $3,000 Where do the Ducks Go?: $2,000 Animal Production Cage: $1,000 Gold Production Box: $1,000
Hopefully people brought their checkbooks that day…

The document concerning Henning’s illusions prices is interresting but it is presented with no resolution and it is out of focus (making it close to impossible to read).
This was given to me by a collector. I have requested another copy and if I receive it I will be sure to put it up.
A transcription of the prices has now been added. Thanks for writing.
I was expecting a short article where you listed what was on the document , especially in light of the difficulty in reading it.

I’m lucky enough to own the King Tut Transposition. It’s on display in my dining room.
