The Whole Art of Ventriloquism by Arthur Prince

A great book by the World's greatest ventriloquist. The author deals with the whole subject of ventriloquism, introducing several original dialogues.

The book includes physical advice and diagrams of the important organs and description of the parts they play in correct ventriloquial use of the vocal chords, tongue, throat diaphram, etc., the proper care of mouth, gums and teeth, throat care and nasal douching. Strengthening exercises for the body, neck, throat, and tongue, vocal exercises, production of the colloquial and distant voices, ventriloquial work and dialogue, both with and without figures. There is also a big section devoted to ventriloquial imitations of a large variety of articles, instruments, and creatures. Uniquely and informatively illustrated by a method which is, in the writer's experience, entirely novel.
