How to become a Conjurer by Will Blyth

This work is primarily intended for those who are seeking to master the art of entertaining by magic, but who are quite ignorant of the rudiments of conjuring.

The first section, although dealing with conjuring books in general, is intended to indicate to the reader how to read this volume so that he may profit from the matter contained in the various sections.

Sections Two, Three, and Four give full instructions on the use of the appliances, appurtenances, and sleights of conjuring. Therein are described the elementary principles and appliances of the art of conjuring which must be regarded as necessary auxiliaries serving to build up effects similar to those described in Section Five. This section gives a useful selection of original and standard effects suitable for various types of performers, all of which have been demonstrated before public audiences and proved to be entertaining.

Finally, Section Six gives full details of conjurers' sidelines; and performers who wish to add variety to their entertainment will find ample material to suit them in this section.
