Comments: "The original routines win which Professional
Magician Henry Bohlen won the Ring One Trophy and Conjurors'
Magazine Award at the IBM Convention in St. Louis, Missouri, June
1946." The George Armstrong edition has all new illustrations by
Lamonte, and is 26 pages long. Note the updated cover states
"Prize-Winning" vs. "Performance Proven", but the interior title
page still says "Performance Proven"
