Exceptional Concepts by George Ernest Arrowsmith

Excerpt from the preface:

Exceptional - EX - equals for me Exonian and this book could well have been called Exonian Magic for the Author has been closely associated with the "Exonian Magical Society" for many years, first as Member, then as Fellow, then as President, and now as Hon. Life-Member, and as the deceptions that follow have been conceived and brought forth under its inspiration and by its help. Several of its items have been contributed by fellow-members of the Society, and in this connection, the Author wishes to thank Messrs. J. Hughes, H. Knight, Geo. Moore, and W. T. Lloyd for giving him permission to include some of their pet effects. He also thanks you, the reader, for buying the book and he hopes you will be rewarded by finding something new and workable in the pages that follow.
