First and only edition, first impression. Fragile and uncommon, just 10 locations on OCLC. A guide by the famous illusionist on how to perform ties “of two distinct types, namely, those adapted to use in spiritualistic work, and those intended for the escape artist” (preface).

Octavo. Original blue, white and black pictorial boards, spine lettered in blue. Frontispiece, 6 plates, diagrams in the text. Label dedicating the work to Harry Kellar, “Dean of Magicians & Master of Mysteries” mounted verso of the frontispiece as usual. A little wear to corners, head and tail of spine, and joints through but sound, frontispiece a little loose. A very good copy.
