Along with his equally famous peers Houdini and Thurston, Blackstone's feats of legerdemain dazzled audiences around the globe. The present volume is Blackstone's legacy to the parlor magician.

Indeed, here are 200 tricks... feats of magic... which will mystify and entertain but may be performed in anyone's living room.
