Marco's Comments:
Very interesting book, being the collection of 17 notebooks on magic tricks written by V. Giglio between 1941 and 1960, with material going back to 1909. Most of it is dedicated to stage magic ("General Magic") and of particular interest to me are the technical details for many tricks and the historical references to performers and their variations. A big chapter is dedicated to card magic (mostly parlour), then magic with ropes, with silks, general magic, etc. A very good book in Italian language which offers a practical overview of magic.
