From the introduction:
A spot of "juggling" has always been a safe bet as an interesting "change-of-pace" for the magician, particularly where he is presenting a long programme. "The Eggs And Glasses" has proved this point with its recent popularity (or "revived popularity") with both magicians and their audiences. The feat was hardly seen for a decade or so, then came a wave of popularity for the feat when it was discovered that "no skill was required" ... just confidence and "knack".
In the same category is the feat of spinning a glass of liquid, either on a hoop or "harness". But this feat now has a slight "edge" on that with the eggs and glasses, because it is seldom seen, and almost never performed by magicians. (At the time of writing that is ... but the issue of this manuscript may change all that!) In my opinion, it is even easier to perform than the Eggs And Glasses ... certainly less exacting ... there being a pretty wide margin for error.
In these pages, I will tell you exactly how to do the "trick" (and I use the word in the juggling sense) and also how to PRESENT it."
In the manuscript you will find well-explained everything you need to perform this interesting and spectacular "trick". The illustrations will make it all clear. You will also find ideas on silent presentation and a humorous patter.
