NOTE: In an ill-advised moment the reprint house decided to change the name of this book. They put a new name on the cover...the innocuous title of 'Card Tricks and Conjuring.' However, the book is the famous Houdini's Elliott's Last Legacy.

Edited by Houdini. 325 pages, illustrated with line drawings.

Elliott was a very popular magician. Particularly some of his card effects were considered best of its kind. Nobody knew the secrets to some of Elliott's tricks. People waited impatiently for the release of this book. But it was met with some disappointment that not all of Elliott's tricks were described. The reason might well be that Elliott died before he could finish his book. Burgess and Houdini had to collect Elliott's notes and fill in some of the missing explanations. However, Elliott and Houdini believed that all the material in this book was new and has never before been published.

Opening chapters are by Houdini and important magic figures of the day. The book covers a wide variety of magic, balls, bottles, boxes, candy trick, forty five card items, mechanical chairs, chemicals, cigars, coins, dies, electric effects, flowers, glasses, hands, handkerchiefs, 25 hints and suggestions on all phases of magic, 21 illusion effects, live stock, various loads, milk, music (120 suggested musical numbers for magic), Oriental numbers, regurgitation and its use in magic (!), rings, servantes, slates, tables, telepathy, wands, water, wells. Magic as it was when Houdini was at the height of his career. This book belongs in your library for information and for sheer joy of magic reading. Full color cover.
