The latest from Goodliffe is THE CONCEALED ART OF MAGIC by relatively unknown George P. Sand­erson, who turns out to be an old timer well versed in his boyhood hobby and early profession with some original ideas. Book is cloth bound with wrapper, 7V2 x 10 in., has 174 pp. of text and is full illustrated with photos, diagrams, and varied illustrations. Selling for $10.00 it is another Goodliffe quality publication. The 23 chapters bring you good advice, clever mental magic, excellent apparatus effects, and the best yet written on deck switches. Peter Biro told me it is too good for the common people. Jeff Busby said, it is not only excellent but worth twice the price. What can I add?
