Magic for Magicians: Occidental and Oriental Mysteries by Percy Abbott

Excerpt from the Foreword:

Percy is an Australian and he has traveled all over the world, particularly in the Orient where he has searched out all the magic of the East. His head is full of the wonderful things that the Chinese, Japanese, East Indians and all those wonderful people of the East do.

We have had the opportunity to see and look through some of the Chinese books on magic and while we can’t read a word of it, yet the illustrations show some most ingenious devices and gimmicks and it is these things in which Abbott excells.

This new book runs the whole gamut of magic, whether it be with coins, cards, thimbles, balls, bowls of water, lighted lamps or whatnot, here you will find something new that will add to your knowledge of our wonderful art.
