used book in great condition - may have writing/stickers in cover

This old and possibly out-of-print title is great eye-opener for a budding magician. the subtitle "ancient and modern" leans heavily on the ancient with the "modern" being tricks primarily from vaudeville days and the early 20th century. sawing a woman in half and making an elephant disappear suddenly seems so obvious in illustrations, but some illusions require a deft imagination at understanding the mechanics of the descriptions. showing how a trick is done isn't the same thing as the skill it takes to make it look effortless.
