The 100 Best Tricks by J. C. Cannell

From the introduction:

In this book there are actually many more than a hundred tricks and all of them could be performed by the average person. I have included no trick which would involve the use of expensive apparatus. Besides devoting a whole chapter to the best card tricks, I have included a number of simpler tricks with cards in other parts of the book.
