116 Coin Sleights and 236 Coin Tricks

When party guests request a few tricks, be prepared. Ask for a coin, and perform some of the trick sin this book. Because you will not have been aided by special stage apparatus, the results will be all the more astonising. As tricks with coins are so readily improvised, they are among the most impressive forms of legerdemain.

This book is the most complete treatise ever written on sleight-of-hand coin conjuring. Celebrated magician J.B. Bobo has gathered here the best and most useful of all coin tricks-not only his own, but those of some four dozen notable prestidigitators, including such greats as Robert-Houdin, Professor Hoffmann and-the greatest of all coin conjurers-T. Nelson Downs.

All the tested, traditional methods of coin magic are here. Bobo has added to these the best of the modern innovations, while eliminating all the out-of-date and impractical sleights of his sources. You will learn all about palms, holds, flips, switches, change-overs, steals, cuffing, sleeving and other sleight-of-hand techniques; coin tricks requiring special devices are also included. The author guides you systematically from basic techniques, concealments and vanishes, through integrated tricks, to complete routined acts (18 in all). His clear explanations are splendidly complemented by 510 illustrations.

Sleight-of-hand magic has consistently earned the respect of professional magicians . If you are yet an amateur, this easy-to-follow manual-together with regular practice-is the surest route to professional level competence. For professionals, this volume is a convenient encyclopedic reference that gathers in one place all the best coin magic from antiquity to modern times.

Paperbound, 5 3/8" by 8 1/2" pages, 510 illustrations.

This book is invaluable. It's a coin magic bible and for the money it's a steal. the amount of sleights and tricks means that each secret costs pennies. Coin magic takes practice as I have recently found out but the reactions to magic using items people can relate to makes it worthwhile. The amount of information can initially be overwhelming but persevere and you may not need another book on coin magic ever again.....
