Abbott's Encyclopedia of Rope Tricks Volume 2 by Stewart James

This is the second of three parts. From the preface:

Several years of research and compilation by Stewart James has gone into this volume to bring the material up to date. Mr. James compiled the first volume and we are indeed indebted to him for his work in this book. The late Ted Annemann once wrote of him: "I honestly consider Stewart James as one of the best informed people in the business, bar none, and one whose tricks always have a touch of genius in their originality."
