Marco's Comments:
English translation of a pamphlet of the end 16/beggining 1 century with some tricks explained. Among these, there is the first explanation of the Linking Rings, the ghost silk, a "bells across", a method to break a rope with bare hands (interesting, but does it work?) and some other puzzles. The original French pages face the English translation. An interesting rare pamphlet.
