This book is one of the great magic classics, the standard work on stage illusions, special effects and trick photography. This truly remarkable book has page after page of explanations for classic stage illusions, conjurer's tricks, ancient magic, stage scenery effects, automata and curious toys, and photographic diversions. All described in complete detail, many of these illusions and tricks can be recreated by the talented reader; the more elaborate effects are of great historical interest.

You will find here behind-the-scenes information on illusions performed by such great magicians as robert-Houdin, Bautier de Kolta, Heller, Hermann, Maskelyne, and Keller; how jugglers, acrobats, fire eaters, sword swallowers, ventriloquists, and mentalists avhieve thier effects (including a complete unveiling of Robert Heller's famous "second night" routine); details of puppet shows among the greeks, the machinery of temples, magical pitchers, perpetual lamps, and more ancient magic; descriptions of techniques for producing stage effects such as sunrise, stars, wind, thunder, lightning, snow, and more, and specific effects from operas and shows such as the swan in Lohengrin; the scientific apparatuses in automation chess players, the money maker, the electrical race course, and other automata and toys; and the simple principles behind trick photographic effects, magic photographs, composite photographs, chronophotography, etc.; plus additional tricks like the Trunk Trick and "metempsychosis," and much more.
