Collected Magic Series Volume 8 by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the introduction:

No, my ever so constant and indefatigable readers, this book contains no marvels, but merely the practical effects of men who conjure, men who think and men who achieve, in contradistinction to the dreamers who dream.

I said just now that there was nothing startling in this book; but there is some very good Magic. The "Snowman" takes my fancy. True, it makes use of plaguey and never-sufficiently-damned tubes. The peculiar stringing of a pack of cards which you will find on page - (How can I tell on which page it will eventually appear!) is alone worth the money for YOU would not have hit upon it in a hundred years. But perhaps you are not interested.

I once made a vow, which I have failed to keep, that I would have no more truck with card tricks and also that I would bar those fearsome words in foreign languages. Alas, I give up the unequal struggle and they appear as usual; indeed I have fallen so low as to allow my own contribution to be a card trick - and very dreadful tosh I have no doubt you will find it.
