The Little Book of VentriloquismTerri Rogers
Excerpt from the foreword by Val Andrews:
Brought up as I was on Arthur Prince and Saveen, I soon realised that Miss Rogers had discovered secrets of technique quite unknown to even those hallowed 'greats'. To begin with she had brilliant material of the kind which can only be lovingly honed by years of performance. Aside from this she was, and is, the most technically skilled ventriloquist that I have ever encountered. Her lip control, pronunciation and vocal agility are wonderful to experience.

From the introduction:
These instructions are based on the methods used by many artists who have become eminently successful in the field of ventriloquism and who, like yourself, had to get their start from such textbooks as were available. I have been told on numerous occasions by both amateurs and professionals that they received their first instructions in the art from La Vellma's Vaudeville Ventriloquism, of which I was co-author and published in 1920. Dealers who listed this book, now out of print, for years recommended it as the standard textbook on ventriloquism and they have repeatedly asked for a new edition. Finally,...
