Essence: 30 Magical Experiments by Verrall Wass

From the introduction:

It has been said that the art of magic is dying; that wireless, the cinema, and now the "Talkies" are killing it. Perhaps so, but the fault lies mainly with us in not supplying the public demand for originality and entertainment. Do not forget that entertainment is the essential factor. So long as the audience is pleased, and the show is well produced, that is all that matters.
