Nevertheless the book is so good that even the intermediate and advanced card magician will be able to learn a lot from its pages.
This book was originally written by Walter B. Gibson for Houdini. Houdini's death in 1926 prevented him putting it out, and Walter issued it under his own name. Ted Annemann considered it one of the best books in its field . . . it had done much to rouse his youthful enthusiasm for card tricks. He had intended to use it as a Jinx Special (he actually allowed pages 831 to 878 for it in the Jinx, and was pasting it up when death intervened. Later Lloyd Jones had reissued it, with a new introduction by Walter, on slick book stock with the illustrations just as it was originally. The cover is the same, but on heavy art paper in three colors. 48 pages, size 8 1/2 x 11 - easy to do card tricks again available; now you can fill that gap in your Jinx file.
