This is one of the best books ever written on escapes and escape magic, bar none. Grant wrote this treatise for the average magician wanting to add an escape to his act, not the professional escape artist. The nice thing is that none of these escapes involve having to pick locks or for the performer to have muscular strength such as required in many escape feats.
All of these are easy to do, and none are life threatening. You can do all of these with no fear of killing yourself!
With the information in this treatise an enterprising magician could put together an entire escape act full of novel and different escapes for a low cost. No need to spend thousands of dollars as many of these escapes will be made by local business concerns as a challenge to you and for the free publicity.
Included in this release are twenty five great escapes any magician can do. U. F. Grant opened up a new era in escape magic. You will learn to do thumb ties, wrist ties, body ties, chain escapes, carton escapes, Totem pole illusion, net escape, cross escape, substitution trunk, canvas covered box escape, 3 packing box escapes, iron chest, cloth and paper bag escapes, barrel escape, vest turning, escape from any handcuffs, and stock escape.
While Grant worked at Abbott Magic, Percy Abbott sold many of these escapes under different names such as the Stocks of Zanzibar, Canvas Covered Box, Slick Tie and Slick Post without giving Grant credit for them in the ads. You will be amazed to find out how many well-known escapes Grant created. A real education and eye opener.
