Magic - Clear and Concise Explanations of Classic Illusions

Author(s): Ellis Stanyon

Reference

From little table tricks to grand illusions, this how-to book by a famed performer and author offers something for every aspiring magician. More than 200 popular illusions -- accompanied by simple, well-illustrated explanations -- range from several ways to make a handkerchief disappear to dissolving a billiard ball and stage levitation. A wide variety of attention-getting stunts include sleight of hand, tricks with coins and hats, stage performances, and even shadow figures.
The writings of Ellis Stanyon (1870-1951), a professional magician and London-based magic dealer, remain highly sought after by illusionists of all types and experience levels. Stanyon published a well-received magazine at the turn of the twentieth century that remains an in-demand collectors' item, and he ran afoul of Harry Houdini for his exposures of trade secrets. Novices and experts alike can benefit from his easy-to-follow guide, in which everyday items like nickels, candles, and plates are transformed into the tools of magic.
