The Magician's Own Book: Recreations in Chemistry, Acoustics, Legderdemain, Electricity, With and Without Apparatus, Performances With Cups and Balls, ... Handkerchiefs, Dice, Knifes, Etc., Etc.
"The Magician's Own Book" contains recreations in chemistry, acoustics, legerdemain, electricity with and without apparatus, performances with cups and balls, eggs, hats, bottles, handkerchiefs, dice, knives, etc., etc., ed. by W. H. Cremer... All from actual experience
...And some words from the "Saturday Review" (1871):
"The Magician’s Own Book" as we are told in the part of this work that is entitled “Preliminary," is already “world-famous.” As if this were not enough, in bringing out the resent edition the publisher has again secured the services of Cremer — the gentleman whose wonderful display of the "Toys of the World" attracted so much notice in the recent International Exhibition.” A world-famous book edited by Mr. Cremer of the International Exhibition required only to be brought out under the sanction of Cole C. B. to render it perfect.
