This Before Magic edition is based on the Second, and greatly expanded, Edition of this timeless work. The Editor, Mahdi Gilbert has corrected typos and grammatical errors in the original publication as well as added many supplementary notes in the hopes of bringing new life to this masterpiece and instructing the future generation of conjurors.

"It is my intention to give, in the following pages, such instruction as shall enable the merest tyro to become an adept in the art of Legerdemain, providing that a due degree of attention is given and a reasonable amount of practice undertaken." - Edwin Sachs
