References in classic literature ?
Aladdin found everything as the magician had said, gathered some fruit off the trees, and, having got the lamp, arrived at the mouth of the cave.
The magician flew into a terrible passion, and throwing some more powder on the fire, he said something, and the stone rolled back into its place.
The magician left Persia for ever, which plainly showed that he was no uncle of Aladdin's, but a cunning magician who had read in his magic books of a wonderful lamp, which would make him the most powerful man in the world.
At last he clasped his hands in prayer, and in so doing rubbed the ring, which the magician had forgotten to take from him.
But far away in Africa the magician remembered Aladdin, and by his magic arts discovered that Aladdin, instead of perishing miserably in the cave, had escaped, and had married a princess, with whom he was living in great honour and wealth.
The magician thanked him who spoke, and having seen the palace knew that it had been raised by the genie of the lamp, and became half mad with rage.
At last a celebrated magician from Finland was brought before the King, who had found out that the King's son-in-law was imprisoned in the East, not by men, but by some more powerful being.
He recognised the magician immediately, but the old man did not know him, he had grown so thin.
But afterwards coming back to the situation, he grasped the hand of the magician, and said, full of politeness and policy:
Oh, as for that," explained Fisher, when he was entertaining March and Twyford at lunch about a month later, "I merely wanted to play with the magician at his own game.
I've known a good many magicians myself in India--mango plant and all.
I assure you it exists very violently, especially in men who like showing up magicians in India.
