This was a pioneering book on magic with tricks by T. Nelson Downs, Charles Bertram, Chas. O. Williams and many others. Included superb photographs. Scarce edition of one of the famous (or infamous) "Yellow Peril" series of books from C. Arthur Pearson. Full of great tricks and fascinating magic adverts from the time. You can read more about this series of books here.
Condition: Fair/poor. As is typical for this series the spine paper is lost and the boards have detached. The is wear, creasing and foxing to the pages and boards. A good candidate for being rebound.
Publisher: C. Arthur Pearson
Dimensions (to nearest cm): 18 X 12cm
