A reprint of Fred Russell's rare book, "Ventriloquism and Kindred Arts,"
is now available in paperback at Amazon books for $10:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1478294728/

Book Description
Fred Russell was the greatest ventriloquist of the British Music Hall era.
Along with his wooden partner, Coster Joe, Russell set the pattern
followed by the dozens of ventriloquists who followed in his footsteps.
For that reason, Russell is often called the Father of Modern Ventriloquism.
Russell's book, "Ventriloquism and Kindred Arts," was first published in 1898.
This volume is a facsimile of the 1904 Australian edition.

I actually have an original Australian edition of this book printed in 1904. It's very interesting actually.

Just got my copy of this book reprint, I think it's easily worth the ten bucks, and should be interesting to read through.
