This hardcover book is 216 pages long, plus a 16 page "Catalogue of Practical Handbooks" at the rear. Features a variety of entertaining and clever tricks with coins, cups and balls, handkerchiefs, electricity, watches, hats, dice, and other miscellaneous items. Also includes chapters on "Spiritualism and Mesmerism", "Dress, Table, Wand, Apparatus, and Stage", etc. Includes 133 black and white illustrations! Book features a lovely pictorial cover. Binding and hinges are tight. The covers and spine are lightly rubbed, with a few small chips to the corners and along the cover edges. There is only very light fraying to the top spine end. There are no loose, torn or missing pages that I saw. The interior is clean, with the exception of a private library sticker on the inside front cover, an old 1911 previous owner signature on the 1st blank page, and very faint yellowing to the interior page edges as a natural result of ageing. Overall, book is in VERY GOOD condition! As with any book this old, some ageing and minor imperfections should be expected.
