After the Dessert by Martin Gardner

You will find tricks with bills, cigarettes, coins, matches, silverware, napkins and salt shakers, all things which are readily available at any restaurant or dinner table.

This ebook was written for the performer, professional or amateur, who is seeking good, well-tested effects which do not require elaborate practice, preparation, or skill.

Martin has chosen only tricks which make use of objects found at any dinner table. All are performed while seated, with spectators on both right and left. A few of the effects are original, but most of them have been picked up from friends who picked them up from friends, so it was impossible to trace them to their origin.

Since After the Dessert was such a success, Martin wrote a second booklet with similar impromptu tricks for the table: Over the Coffee Cups.
