Harry Leat was a controversial and influential magic dealer and publisher. This 1925 book opens with a cartoon and essay attacking Houdini for publishing magic secrets in the press. Then follows secrets of the very latest apparatus from a range of prominent American dealers of the day. The dealers include Charles Brush, Chicago Magic Co., Gilbert, Carl S. Lohrey, Rullmann, Thayer and more. A brilliant snapshot of the age.
