Second edition (revised) of this compendium of magic tricks. Circa 1919. Small octavo, original pictorial boards, 95 pages, spine intact, some light soiling to covers.
Goldston was a talented magician and professional dealer and agent (handling more than 200 magicians). For many years he managed the “Conjuring, Theatrical, & Entertainment Departments” at Gamage’s Department Store in London. He also founded “The Magicians’ Club,” acting as club treasurer alongside Harry Houdini, who served as its first president.
A fascinating book filled with astounding but simple tricks and puzzles guaranteed to puzzle and amuse. Each of these is accompanied by advice on patter. The contents are well illustrated with instructive diagrams and will appeal to any budding magician or party organizers.
A scarce edition.
