Harry Houdini Defies Natural Laws

Advancement improved the limited number of surprising transformations done in defiance of natural laws, left leg, or head. The decapitation of a man in 1874 was presented in the form of "sawing a woman in half." Gravitation involves disappearance.

Created from the entry for "conjuring," written by Harry Houdini, from the 13th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
