Comments: "Work" Handbooks. From the publisher: "In this handbook, two well known conjurors..Professors Day and Levani have 'given away', in sixteen fully illustrated chapters, a large number of the most effective and entertaining tricks and illusions to be found in their repertoires. Not only do they show, in regard to each trick, 'how it is done', but they describe in simple, practical language how to make the whole of the apparatus employed, including a selection of really up-to-date servantes and two serviceable patterns of conjurors tables."
