A skillful combination of fascinating biographical detail and carefully described magical secrets has produced a volume that has a unique place in magical literature.
Leipzig was one of the gentlemen of magic, with an endearing, quiet style that captured every audience for which he performed. He performed small tricks, like the Penny Out of a Glass of Beer and large tricks like his Cabaret Card-Stab. These and a multitude of others are described by Lewis Ganson in precise detail as passed on by the one and only Dai Vernon. Over sixty routines and tricks are described in this wonderful classic of magic, any one of which would have fetched several times the price of this book.
Dozens of photographs (rescreened for the best possible reproduction) showing Dai Vernon performing the beautiful Leipzig magic illustrate the text which is written in Lewis Ganson's clear style. This book is a famous classic and much coveted by discerning magicians. And now, entirely new to this edition from L & L Publishing, is a special biographical chapter written by David Goodsell.
