Mr Hart or Hunt was a gentleman and an elderly member of the Learned Society of York Magicians. The discrepency in his name is due to the fact that John Segundus could never properly recall his name, and the lack of other records about him. He held the view that, while theoretical magic was a noble art, practical magic had low connexions and should be avoided [1]. By contract with Gilbert Norrell, he and many of his fellow Society gentlemen ceased to be a magician as of Februrary, 1807 [3]. (See The stones of York.)
