From the introduction:
Safety-pins are familiar things; they're inexpensive and can be bought almost everywhere both here and abroad. In other words, they're ideal props with which to perform magic. As a bonus, they are extremely portable and shine under lights.
Over the years the Supreme Magic Company has stocked a number of tricks with safety-pins but, probably because they were sold at low prices, people read the ads. and ignored them ... "because they can't be much good at that price'."
On the contrary, some of them had a startling effect, so Edwin has agreed they should be collected into one volume. Here they are with a number of additions, all employing unfaked safety-pins.
Find the ones you like, give them some rehearsal, then go out and make your point.
