This is the Max Holden edition. Book is in very good condition. Some discoloration of the cover. Golden Gate Magic Co. sticker on the inside back cover.
This is volume two in the classic sleight-of-hand trilogy. From the foreword:
Since many branches of Magic are again represented in this volume, a close study of it will, I sincerely hope, assist the reader in perhaps making some little change, addition or improvement in an existing 'move' or effect in which he may be interested.
I have included in this book my method of working and presenting "The Chinese Rings," mainly for those of my readers who have not up to now performed this effect, and who may desire a reliable and effective method of presentation for this "classic" trick.
