Hofzinser's Card Conjuring

Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser & Ottokar Fischer

Hofzinser's Card Conjuring by Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser & Ottokar FischerHofzinser was born at the beginning of the 19th century and lived in Vienna during a time called the 'Biedermeier'. This was a time where people enjoyed art and entertainment in drawing-room presentations and at little receptions in the houses and villas of the rich and famous.

The Magic of J. N. Hofzinser

Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser & Ottokar Fischer & Richard Hatch

The Magic of J. N. Hofzinser by Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser & Ottokar Fischer & Richard HatchDespite Hofzinser's wish to have all his apparatus and magic records destroyed, a lot has been preserved because his wish was never carried out. Ottokar Fischer wrote two books in German about Hofzinser: Kartenkünste and Zauberkünste. This ebook here is Richard Hatch's authoritative translation of the Zauberkünste book.

This ebook describes more than 80 effects created by Hofzinser including more than 100 photos and illustrations....
