Originally published by Harry Stanley in 1961, this book introduced Slydini and his astounding routines to the magic world. In addition to teaching Slydini's revolutionary approaches to close-up magic and his taking misdirection to the level of science, you also get 11 of his master routines completely explained by master magic teacher Lewis Ganson. And a lot of photos.
Routines include his sponge balls routine, Knotted silks, coins trhough the table, and his classic Paper Balls over the Head -- plus a bunch of others which are less well-known, but just as good!
If you are serious about magic, and you have not carefully studied Slydini's magic, you need this book!
