From the author's PREFACE:
In compiling this little book of Magic it
has been my aim to present, as far as I know, original effects. Not
entirely original, perhaps, in the methods of working, yet "Magical
Suggestions" that I have found practical in my own act. A vast
quantity of magical literature has come my way and I have found the
books contained little that was original or new, so have been tempted to
produce a few of my own ideas. I am not attempting to teach the reader
the "Art of Magic" or how to present it, as there are a number of
standard works on the subject. I am simply giving the effect and the
modus operandi of the experiments in a plain and straightforward manner,
and leave it to the reader to construct his own patter and to adopt his
own method of presentation.
