Modern Magic by Professor Hoffman will always remain a classic on the subject. It has helped many an aspiring magician master the tricks of the trade. All it will take is the proper amount of practice. I'm completely new to the world of "conjuring", so I was looking for a book suitable for newbies.

After that, the book delves into coin tricks, handkerchief tricks, and many stage illusions involving contraptions, mirrors, hats, wands, rabbits, birds, bowling balls, etc.

The more important secrets of the art have been known but to few, and those few have jealously guarded them, knowing that the more closely they concealed the clue to their mysteries, the more would those mysteries be valued. Indeed, the more noted conjurors of fifty years ago strove to keep the secret of their best tricks not only from the outside world, but from their confr�res.

(I like the little red devils on the cover anyway. Hilliar listed himself as the "author", but the only part he may have actually written was the small section on hand shadows (a reprint from his 1900 booklet). The rest was taken from Nelson Downs, his book for Howard Thurston, Hoffmann's "Modern Magic" (1876), "More Magic" (1890), Roterberg's "New Era Card Tricks" (1897) and material from Selbit's book with a similar name "The Magician's Handbook" (1901).

Not illustrated. 1902 Excerpt: ... in which position it is retained by a little catch on the stem c, though it flies back instantly under the compulsion of a spring the moment each catch is released. When the top is folded down in the manner above described, the bouquet becomes nearly flat, in which condition it may be kept within the breast of the performer's coat without attracting observation. It is produced under the momentary cover of a hat or handkerchief, and the catch being simultaneously released, the bouquet resumes its normal condition, in which shape it seems impossible that it could have been concealed as above described, or indeed in any way, about the person of the performer. A tolerably deep lace border around the hoop disguises the nakedness of the framework, while adding practically nothing to the bulk of the bouquet when folded. The Animated Cigar. Among the less known "hat" tricks, I may mention a little illusion of my own (now procurable at most of the conjuring depots), known as the "Animated" or "Dancing" Cigar, wherein an ordinary cigar is made to stand upright, balance itself, bow to right and left, etc., on the crown of a borrowed hat.
