The cover is there to be downloaded as well. Just click on the image that appears next to the listing on the website and it should open up.


The only image I can retrieve is a rather small one. I can "Zoom" it while printing but it really doesn't do justice to the rest of the work. Is there a print ready graphic somewhere and I just couldn't find it?

Can anyone tell me how I can download this as a file? It always auto-opens in Adobe Reader from which I can't save. Any help appreciated, it looks great. Thanks Fortasse.

Dave : I'm working on the image. There's also a second Ozanam image that for some reason was not included in the e-book. I'm working on an immediate solution to this which hopefully will make it available for download directly from here (Magic Café) later tonight, along with another copy of the image that is already in the ebook but which you seem to be having a problem with. Please bear with me as I work this out, with the help of another member of this forum.

Haven't check it yet, but it reminds me of a book, ENCYLOPEDIC I was told, on the Cups and Balls bring written by Frenchman Ettiene Laurencue (sp?). Anyone know how he's coming on it?

I think I will probably see Etienne at either the Collector's or the European Congress on Magic History. I think his last name is Lamorteau.

I have posted new pictures for Sean's e-book on one of my web sites.

Go to http://www.hocuspocusjr.com/Ozanam1.jpg
http://www.hocuspocusjr.com/Ozanam2.jpg
http://www.hocuspocusjr.com/revisedcover.jpg

Just right click on the picture and then click on Save Target As.

For the time being, you can download these, print the whole thing out, and insert the new pictures where they belong in the text.

Thank you Bill! Those are much higher resolution than the 300x400 or so that was originally posted.

And thank you Fortasse for making this available. It's interesting how little things have changed in the last 300 years or so.

Doesn't seem to work for this. I'm using Mozilla Firefox and can normally save the file by right clicking and selecting 'Save Link As' which does work fine for this, but.... it saves a 5K file called download.php which is maybe some kind of information file, not the pdf itself?

Any help appreciated. I would very much like this in my library.

How far along in the process do you get? I had forgotten how involved this was. You have to click on the link to buy the book. This will send you to a page that shows you buying the book for $0.00. Then you click on a "continue" button. At that point you have to enter your registration information.

Yes, I can get past all that. I finish at the download page. If I double-click on the download icon, the file downloads fine but displays in Acrobat reader (from where I can read it but can't save it.)

I would like to download the pdf itself to store on my drive. The link which I click on is a .php file which is apparently some kind of server information, not the pdf file itself. For that reason, I can't do a 'Save Target as' (or in my case, 'Save Link as')

I downloaded it with Firefox without any problems. I don't think there's any right clicking involved - it automatically goes to the 'Downloads' file. I'm sorry I can't be of any more help than that.

Bill or Fortasse, where does Ozanam2.jpg go into the text? I do not see it in your original.

Todd :

It should be inserted immediately after the other illustration that shows the cups in the Ozanam section of the e-book (or immediately after page 7).

Ozanam writes on page 15 that "Tricks with a gibeciere consist mainly of tricks using cups and several other sleight-of-hand tricks for which we now give explanation."

The material that follows appears to consist of cups and ball material. Was there additional gibeciere material in the original work? That too would be interesting reading.

Yes, there are other tricks that Ozanam describes (the same with Guyot) but they do not involve cups-and-balls which was the extent of my interest.

Jeff :

Just to clarify : all of the cups and balls material in Ozanam and Guyot was included in my e-book.
