Peter Warlock's Book of Magic by Peter Warlock

This is a wonderful ebook to introduce a beginner to magic and teach him or her several excellent magic tricks. It covers all the necessary basics. Written by Peter Warlock, a world-wide respected master magician and widely published author in magic.

From the introduction:

The means of achieving these feats rely in the main upon simple processes, for experience has proved that the simple process seldom lets the magician down. The intricate piece of apparatus that may on occasions prove temperamental is a danger - if, or rather when, that apparatus fails, there is no mystery and likewise, there is no magician.

Therefore my intention has been to describe in this volume a number of magical effects which should leave the performer free from such worries. All of them should prove ideal for the amateur magician. They are designed to give him confidence so that with a full knowledge and experience in performing them he is ready to attempt more ambitious tricks.
