From the foreword by Will Goldston:
I admire a magician whose zeal for his art is always at fever heat. I admire a magician who sets out to discover some of the hidden treasures of magic and does not count the cost, in time and labour, that he spends on the task. Lastly, I admire the magician who, when he has found some of those hidden treasures, is willing and anxious to share them with his fellow magicians.
The reader will now understand why I have a profound admiration for the magician whose originations appear in this book. One glance at it will convince anyone who understands magic that it is no ordinary book, and those who know Edward Proudlock - and I have that great pleasure - will not be surprised, for he is no ordinary magician, but a super-magician, a genius. He is brilliant when he is performing and equally brilliant - as this book proves - when he is inventing. I marvel when I think of the amount of energy he must have spent in acquiring - by sheer, hard thinking - the material for this book.
