Magic is Fun / Magic for Everyone by Hereward Carrington
From the introduction:
There is no more fascinating study, when once an interest in the subject has been aroused, than conjuring - or, as it is popularly called, "Magic." One of the most delightful of all pastimes is the inventing and performing of new tricks, and watching their effect upon the audience - who do not know the secrets of the various "sleights" performed. We all know how fascinating the professional conjuror's entertainment is, - and how mystifying! So I propose to take my readers, - in the present book, - into the very heart of the mystery - to explain exactly how the important and really effective tricks are performed - and not merely the "workings" of a few parlour tricks, which are out-of-date, and easy of detection. After reading this volume, the would-be magician will find himself possessed of a wealth of secrets, and a stock of information which will enable him to give an entertainment as good as many seen upon the public stage - if he will but give the necessary amount of time and trouble to developing and studying the tricks.
