Marco's Comments:
From the Leslie C. Smith collection, lot 68, with his bookplate. David Devant was giving lessons in magic and he published this book to increase his business. This is where the famous phrase "I know only eight tricks" was published. The tricks explained are very good and very detailed, regardless of being of the "old school".
