Conjuring by Eric Hawkesworth

This ebook gives directions for a number of conjuring tricks that depend on skill rather than costly apparatus for their magical effect. They include examples of mind-reading, escapology, ventriloquism, and stage illusions, and each section of the ebook is devoted to a particular type of act.

The success of any show depends on coordinating the movements with the patter. It is important that the two should be practiced together, so an outline script is provided with each trick.
