This book is also available as part of the Essential Hoffmann set HERE.
First published in 1890, More Magic builds upon Modern Magic, Professor Hoffmann's seminal work. In the eleven years following the publication of his first magic book a great deal had developed and changed in the magic world. These progressions lead Hoffmann to write More Magic to bridge this gap for students of the art. With in-depth descriptions of card and coin tricks, mechanical apparatus and stage illusions, it became an instant classic, read by conjurers worldwide.
More Magic began as a sequel to Modern Magic and was followed by further conjuring books by Hoffmann. His series had a profound effect on the development of magic as a performance art and is still regarded as essential reading for people learning to become magicians. Alongside this, More Magic provides a frank and entertaining snapshot of the magic world in the late nineteenth century.
