Glenn G. Gravatt (1899-1984) was an interesting fellow.

Primarily known to magicians - magic lovers for his conjuring books and contributions to Genii magazine; he also wrote successful detective & mystery novels

As a London journalist in 1924, and, by his own admission, flat broke, he enlisted in the British army (Native Infantry), was posted to Lehej, Arabia and defended the surrounding villages from the fierce Subaihi tribesmen and stalled off organized expeditions from the warlike tribes of the Northeast!

The book is divided into eleven well illustrated sections dealing with: Tricks With Balls ~ Blocks and Cubes ~Cards ~ Coins ~ Feats of Divination ~ Dice and Dominoes ~ Mental Feats ~ Penetrations ~ Ropes & Strings ~Silks and Miscellaneous Effects

There's a wealth of great, original, material (tricks and routines) between these covers.
One of the true geniuses in magic, these creations by Glenn Gravatt will surely add some strong magic to your repertoire!
