This book is the most complete treatise ever written on sleight-of-hand coin conjuring. Celebrated magician J.B. Bobo has gathered here the best and most useful of all coin tricks-not only his own, but those of some four dozen notable prestidigitators, including such greats as Robert-Houdin, Professor Hoffmann and-the greatest of all coin conjurers-T. Nelson Downs.
All the tested, traditional methods of coin magic are here. Bobo has added to these the best of the modern innovations, while eliminating all the out-of-date and impractical sleights of his sources. You will learn all about palms, holds, flips, switches, change-overs, steals, cuffing, sleeving and other sleight-of-hand techniques; coin tricks requiring special devices are also included. The author guides you systematically from basic techniques, concealments and vanishes, through integrated tricks, to complete routined acts (18 in all). His clear explinations are splendidly complimented by 510 Illustrations.
