This Is Magic by Loring Campbell

Nicely illustrated routines of a full-time performer.

From the introduction:

"Why don’t you write a book on Magic?" I have been asked this question hundreds of times in the past several years, and my answer has been that I am too busy, or that I wanted to be the only Magician who did not write a Magic Book!

However, I have taken the time from my hundreds of shows en route each season to conduct a monthly column in TOPS Magazine and to write many articles and tricks for the Sphinx, Genii and Linking Ring. So when I was requested to compile all the tricks I had formerly written for these magazines into one book, with the addition of several more good practical tricks that had never been in print before, I decided that it was a good idea.
