2015 Reprint of the 1944 edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This is no mere book of tricks. Fitzkee reduces all magic tricks to some nineteen general basic effects. Then, one by one, he discusses All the possible ways of accomplishing any of these general effects.

It is a necessity for the intelligent magician”—Stuart Robson “An outstanding contribution to the literature of magic… The best work on the theory of magic since Nevil Maskelyne”—Wilfred Jonson. “This work is of great value for magicians. Whether or not the book is used for producing original magic, it should be read, reread and studied by every magician for a better understanding of what magic is and what magicians can do and can seem to do…. A most valuable book and completely necessary for every student of magic.”—John Mulholland, editor THE SPRINX.
