A reprint of the 1612 edition of one of the earliest and rarest books on magic including 30 effects with cards, coins, balls, and more. Essential reading for any serious magician! Protected in a beautiful period-looking leatherette drawstring pouch! Limited to 1000 numbered copies. Now you can learn ancient secrets of magic from one of the first books on conjuring, The Art of Jugling or Legerdemaine, originally published in 1612. There are only four copies of the 1612 edition of The Art of Jugling or Legerdemaine in the world, and only 1000 numbered copies of this high-quality reprint. The text contains magic with cards, coins, balls, knives, and other objects, and you'll be amazed by the vivid explanations of effects still being performed today, including a packet trick with specially designed cards. The Art of Jugling or Legerdemaine will give you a glimpse of magic four hundred years ago, and maybe even a few new routines for your show. It will also look beautiful in your library in its drawstring pouch, which looks like an accessory of the bygone magicians who studied The Art of Jugling. There's also a historical introduction and 48 pages on high-quality UV-coated gloss paper, saddle-stitched, protected in a beautiful brown alligator-skin-style pouch.
