Second revised edition of this classic treatise on the theory, art, and practice of stage magic, by two eminent English magicians.
Very good plus.
"As grammar is to literature, or versification to poetry, so are sleights and fakes to magic. Such things are the means, not the end of art."
Revised and enlarged edition of the classic collaborative work on conjuring, first published in 1911 and "hailed by reviewers as the most important work on magic ever written" (Fleming). Presented as Volume Three in the Fleming Classic Magic Series and newly illustrated with line drawings to replace the original halftone prints as an aid to students, OUR MAGIC is organized in three parts: The Theory in Magic and The Art in Magic, both by Maskelyne and expanded from articles previously published in The Magic Circular; and The Practice of Magic, by Devant, written out of his long experience as a performer.
Berkeley Heights, NJ: Fleming Book Company, 1946. 9.25'' x 6''. Original gilt-stamped maroon cloth boards. No dust jacket. Illustrated with frontispiece portrait of Devant and 86 drawings by Jeanne McLavy. 318 pages. Minor page toning, faint spotting to fore-edge. Spine lightly sunned.
