Excerpt from the Preface:
The art of simple paper folding gives pleasure not only to the young, but even to old stagers, who become interested and sometimes enthusiastic in the making-up of paper items, learnt at school, but long forgotten. Mr. Oswald Williams, the famous illusionist, was kind enough to express to the author his appreciation of Paper Magic, and testified to the pleasure he had received in making up the various paper folds described therein, some...

Handkerchief MagicWill Blyth
How to entertain and amuse children or adult audiences with a pocket handkerchief.
From the introduction by Clive Maskelyne:

Handkerchief tricks are always popular, and the selection given in Handkerchief Magic is not only ingenious and amusing, but, where an old principle or an old piece of apparatus has been employed as the foundation of an effect, the author has given it such new surroundings...

Money MagicWill Blyth
Entertaining tricks and amusements with coins.
From the introduction:
This volume has been subdivided into three parts. The first part, comprising tricks necessitating special coins or apparatus, will involve a little outlay. This outlay, however, is not a big item, and a few shillings spent at one of the conjuring depots, whose addresses are to be found among the advertising matter in this book, will place the reader in possession of some really effective tricks. That is, provided the performer carefully follows the detailed workings given in the book; he should then be able to amuse...

Effective ConjuringWill Blyth
From the introduction:
Every item has been presented by the author, not only before the general public, who may generally be relied on to give audible expressions of their likes and dislikes, but also before meetings of conjurers, where candid criticism has resulted in filling up several possible pitfalls and leaving everything fairly even and workable.
Most of my previous works on conjuring have dealt with specific subjects, such as paper, match-sticks, handkerchiefs, coins, etc. The present volume, however, contains a variety of useful effects which, if presented with due regard to the...
