This is a rare Hoffmann book from around 1900. After the success of Hoffmann's groundbreaking texts, Hoffmann's publisher released some shorter books made from these works. This particular book explains card effects that don't require special apparatus. It also has illustrated Hamley's adverts at the front and back. A rare survivor.
