From the introduction:
These instructions are based on the methods used by many artists who have become eminently successful in the field of ventriloquism and who, like yourself, had to get their start from such textbooks as were available. I have been told on numerous occasions by both amateurs and professionals that they received their first instructions in the art from La Vellma's Vaudeville Ventriloquism, of which I was co-author and published in 1920. Dealers who listed this book, now out of print, for years recommended it as the standard textbook on ventriloquism and they have repeatedly asked for a new edition. Finally, after really getting around to doing something about it, I decided to prepare a more comprehensive coverage of the subject and include many helpful suggestions based on the actual experiences of self-taught and successful performers or compiled from voluminous data acquired from all over the world during thirty odd years of collecting every available book or article on the art that came to my attention.
