Cards, coins, rings, and even the human predilection for wonder may all be expertly manipulated with the help of this guide to favorite tricks and illusions of the magicians art. Professor Henri Garenne, the urbane author of this manual on conjuring, intended it as a "guide for amateurs and young beginners." Starting with the basics of palming objects and using props, and progressing through more than 200 tricks, this distinctive volume is a rich resource for the new magician or the armchair prestidigitator. The lessons involve cards, coins, rings, balls and handkerchiefs. They explain mesmerizing tricks like the Flying Glass of Water and To Produce Eggs from a Persons Mouth. Even more astounding are the Indian Basket trick, The Living Head in a Bottle, and--for a truly stupendous effect--A Lady Suspended in the Air Without Any Visible Support! And those looking for instruction in ventriloquism and thought reading will not be disappointed. The secrets are here. Elegant vintage engravings demonstrate the tricks and add to the charm of Professor Garennes delightful treatise.
