stress the rivalry between mediums and stage magicians, who explicitly performed tricks for entertaining purposes: the ‘medium’ has no apparatus, or, if he has, it cannot be found, and he gives his ‘séances’ in strange rooms, with but a few minutes of preparation.

English magician John Nevil Maskelyne tried to help the prosecution unmask Slade. The psychic was. convicted, but that ruling was later overturned. Magicians such as the Englishman John Nevil Maskelyne, and American Harry Kellar – who had been an assistant to the Davenports – were soon demystifying the Davenports' séance cabinet routine with similar cabinet séance effects during their shows. With such mimicry, magicians became entertaining champions of rationality, giving their audiences thrills equal to that found at séances, and the additional feeling of superiority inevitable in such "unmasking" – or stripping bare of the phenomena of the occult.

As Richard Noakes explains in his new book, Physics and Psychics: the Occult and the Sciences in Modern Britain, this same pattern could be found in the late 19th century: professional magicians of the Victorian theatre such as John Nevil Maskelyne often challenged the claims made by psychics, mediums and spiritualists by repeating their tricks using stage magic. They were certainly scientific eminences – both had knighthoods and strings of awards for their work – but were nonetheless credulous individuals.
