Tricks For Everyone by David Devant

Clever conjuring with common objects. Illustrated with 134 photographs.

From the introduction:

The following chapters will be found to be practical lessons in conjuring. Many people have the erroneous idea that if they know how a trick is done they are quite capable of presenting it to an audience. I have always found that a very little experience will show such persons that the mere knowledge of the secret of a trick is not of much value to a beginner unless it is accompanied by some simple instructions showing him the best way of using his knowledge. Therefore, I shall not merely give away secrets of tricks, but shall endeavour to make my explanation of each trick a complete lesson in its performance.
