I just bought a book at a garage sale for one dollar. its one I've not seen before.
its called: "Magic: stage illusions, special effects, and trick photography" compiled and edited by Albert A. Hopkins

this edition was published by Dover publications in 1976, but it says its an "unabridged and unaltered republication of the work originally published by Munn & Co., publishers, scientific American ofice, new york, in 1898 under the title Magic:Stage illusions and Scientific Diversions, Including Trick Photography"

heres a pic of the cover: http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh286......book.jpg

I've never heard of this book before. I bought it because Keller was on the cover. lol. it actually has information on Torrini. says his real name was Comte de Grisi

some GREAT history in this book! even a big section on temple magic from Eygpt and greece. I cant wait to read it
my real name is Kevin Harrison

I like the old-style line drawings in this book. Lots of food for thought, and fun to flip through too!

I own the earlier version of this book you referred to. It is a very interesting book indeed, I'm glad you have one. The content is very unique.
