Portada
Courier Corporation, 1999 - 312 páginas
Hundreds of tricks devised by one of the leading magicians of the early 20th century — from relatively complex maneuvers involving mathematical calculation and the discovery of a chosen card, to such simple sleights of hand as "The Traveling Ace" and "Putting the King and Queen to Bed." Fascinating, clearly illustrated material for amateurs and professionals alike.
