Twenty Magical Novelties by Edward Bagshawe

In this work, we find for the first time the popular Out-to-lunch principle (see for example Anagramation by Jim Krenz) being published.

From the introduction:

The better one becomes acquainted with magic, the more one realizes that the word "novelty" must be used with care. That is, if one wishes to be strictly veracious. Nevertheless, I believe the reader will find that the various offerings in this book possess some element of newness - either in the effects themselves or the methods outlined.

It will be noted that I have not included items that are only accessories or suggestions (with which another book could doubtless be filled), but instead, I have devoted the available space to the description of effects that are complete in detail. This, I think, is the most satisfactory course, since the book is intended for the reader who is already familiar with magical principles and devices.
