The Esoterist by Allan Ackerman

This is number two of the Paul Diamond "Gems of Magic Book" series.

Roger Klause writes in his foreword:

Those of you readers who have had the opportunity to study and benefit from Allan's first work, Magic Mafia Effects, and those of you who have had the more fortunate experience of witnessing this young man's remarkable ability with the pasteboards will certainly welcome this treatise with great eagerness.

Should this be your first encounter with Allan's literary efforts please be assured that each and every premise contained herein has been given the acid test before some of the most knowledgeable cardmen and astute audiences in the country.

Allan has certainly earned for himself a position among the leading ranks of the younger generation of card devotees. He brings with him a most pleasing personality that will win him countless friends in the near future. I am proud to count myself among those of the present.
