STREET MAGIC: An Illustrated HIstory of Wandering Magicians and their Conjuring Arts -- by Edward Claflin, in collaboration with Jeff Sheridan (1977 Doubleday Dolphin, paperback 1st edition)
This book covers the history of street magic from all over the world. Lots of fascinating information. Written in the mid-1970's, when David Blaine was still in kindergarten, so the history stops short of the current resurgence of street magic. But the final chapter does focus on legendary street magician, Jeff Sheridan, who elevated street performance of magic to new levels with his shows in NY Central Park.
