There is a section on the puppet in Professor Hoffmann's Drawing Room Amusements (1883), p. 182.

Saturday evening meant the Gala show with expert and excellent compering by Jack Yates. Dudley Smith opened with a card act in which only Jumbo cards were used. The Pollock influence was noted in the second act of Jimmy Wilson who apart from dove production showed that with his addition of general magic experience should take him right to the top of the magical profession. There was a spot of ventriloquism and the first half of the show closed with some pleasing sleight of hand and the first showing of some black light effects presented very stylishly by Wally Radford, or rather as he was billed. Palmetto.
British ventriloquists held their first convention here yesterday, under the auspices of the American-founded International Brotherhood of Ventriloquists. The event was organized by the brotherhood's only British vice-president, Mr. Maurice Hurling, of Babba-combe, Torquay, and was attended by 40 members, with their dummies. An exhibition of the latest ventriloquial novelties included a talking skull, a Toby jug a Humpty Dumpty head, a head on a walking stick, and a handbag that could be turned into a ventriloquist's dummy. The convention ended with a cabaret by the members, at which new ventriloquial techniques were demonstrated.

Like most magicians, I've tried it all Mentalism, illusions, close-up, comedy, fire-eating, ventriloquism, kids shows, card pitchman, builder, stage performer, assistant, M.C., lecturer, etc. My personal association with illusions led me to close-up At one time, I was doing large stage magic with 2-3 small illusions (nothing big) for the finale. While I was doing paid shows with this so called act, I was also learning more about close-up. I used to carry 5-6 suitcases in addition to a variety of miscellaneous loose items. When I received my first paid close-up performance, I couldn't believe that I only had to carry one attache case. It was a dream come true To this day I find it quite amazing that I can make hundreds (and sometime thousands) of dollars with just an attache case full of junk. Over the years I have developed into an entertainer rather than just a magician.
The Sphinx is supposed to have been invented by Thomas Tobin, secretary of the Polytechnic at that time under the direction of John Henry Pepper. Tobin offered the illusion to Pepper who declined it, when it was afterwards purchased by Stodare whose powers as a ventriloquist in apparently causing the dummy head to speak, doubtless, increased ten-fold the value of the original illusion.
And he was a knowledgeable magician too. David recalls his sleight of hand and remembers an animated ventriloquist's dummy called Micky who lived in a cupboard, or so I nele Alex said, and for many years young David truly thought it was alive. All in all, Alex was the uncle that every boy dreamed of unconventional, talented and adventurous. His influence on young David was profound.
I met with one of the producers on the Royal Variety Show, a guy named Ian Hamilton, who I had worked with on many previous TV shows. We decided to perform my ventriloquism routine with two celebrities, but we couldn't decide who to use. I went home to think about who would be suitable. I was racking my brain when all of a sudden it came to me World Heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno and boxing commentator Harry Carpenter These two celebrities were always associated as a bit of a double act and were very current. I immediately called Ian Hamilton, who also thought that using Frank Bruno and Harry Carpenter would be a great idea.

Another example that Paul recalls happened when Terry Rogers, a ventriloquist and magical inventor suggested a trick where a ring would appear in an egg timer. Paul thought it was a great idea, so he invited Terry to the TV studio on the day they planned to film the effect.
Though a magician of some standing, Maurice was better known for his contributions to the sister art of Ventriloquism, this perhaps being his greatest love. He was Vice-President of the International Brotherhood of Ventriloquists, and a Vice-President of the Society of Magicians. Many Ventriloquial sketches have been published under his name, such as Burlesque Second Sight , Ventriloquial Titbits , School Cheek , in addition to which he was the Author of Ventriloquial Verbosity , A short cut to Ventriloquism and The Concert Ventriloquist , and though Maurice is now gone from us, those tomes will live to perpetuate his name.

Walford Bodie, Ventriloquist and Mesmerist, finished his fortnight's stay here on June 8th. The draw of the performance was The Electrocuted Man, in which Dr. Bodie, after mesmerising an assistant, places him in a chair, which lie says is exactly the same as the one used at the Sin Sin Prison in New York. He then goes through the whole performance of electrocution, giving his assistant, as he says, the number of volts sufficient to kill a man in America. Needless to say, however, after about 15 minutes he brings liini round again.
It starts on the bottom, then dances around to amuse his friends. (Paul does the card dancing along the fan move, like in the old card-forcing gag) Hello Hello Don't be alarmed, the Ace can't really talk, my hand's a ventriloquist. (The card's is still dancing along the fan.) It leans to the left, leans to the right, stand up - sit down, fight-fight-fight. I then grab the Ace by it's thin cardboard little body and squeeze until it becomes invisible.
