Product Description

By J. Prevost. The magic world has waited over 4000 years for a reprint to this rare, but important book. Originally published in France in 1584, this is the earliest known book completely devoted to conjuring secrets. Unfamiliar to all but a few, even in France, the complete text of this landmark of conjuring literature has been meticulously translated into English and copiously annotated.

Ever wonder what tricks and methods your magical ancestors knew and used more than 400 years ago? You are in for some surprises! 84 tricks, feats and stunts are described in painstaking detail by Prevost in his masterwork. 270 pages, designed and typeset in close simulation to the French original, this important volume is being produced in a deluxe edition and only 700 were made. This is sure to please the student of magic and bibliophile.

    I’ve had this for years and to show it to people after my museum and re-enactment shows, it adds a lot to what they’ve just seen. It’s marvelous.
