This comes from an old magician’s estate purchase. Covers are worn but still completely intact with the spine which is slightly angled. Most all interior pages appear to be in good and clean condition, but a few do have some light water stains on some areas. There is also a partial stain at the top edges of the pages (looking down on the closed book) that does not appear on the pages themselves. (See picture) The name Raymond L Snow is handwritten on the very first blank page (See picture).

Subtitle reads: Being A Simple Description Of Some Good Tricks And How To Do Them With Patter. Here are a few examples of the contents: Feats of Mind Reading; The Art of Black Art; Spiritualistic Tricks; Second Sight Experiments; Shadowgraphs and Silhouettes; Some Good State Illusions…and more.
