by J. Prevost. Hermetic Press FIRST EDITION
1998 reprint of the 16th century text written to expose the secrets of charlatans and con artists, it details methods that have become part of magical entertainment since. Originally published in 1584 -- the same year as the more famous Discoverie of Witchcraft by Reginald Scot --, this classic book can also lay claim to being the first, or maybe the second book on modern conjuring.
Very hard to find, and for the serious student of magic history, this is a rare gem, in MINT condition
