This is a rare Hoffmann book from around 1900. After the success of Hoffmann's groundbreaking text Modern Magic the book was republished in sections making it affordable to a whole new generation of magicians. This is one of those extracts from Modern Magic.
Condition: Fair/poor, spine has multiple cracks. Where the boards meet the text block the joins have been re-inforced with conservation-grade japanese tissue and adhesive by a qualified conservator. Other general marks and yellowing. I wouldn't recommend using this as a reading copy.
