In the first decades of the twentieth century magicians filled the magic journals with articles on card tricks, giving improvements on classic tricks and inventing new ones. If you could put together a collection of these magazines you would have almost a complete course on card tricks, by some of ther world's greatest magicians. But where could you find these journals now that they are probably collector's items? And even if you could find them, how much would a collection cost? Not very much. Becuse all the best of these tricks are available in this one monumental book, containing nearly every practical card trick produced, invented and improved by magicians over a span of forty years and more.
