Marco's Comments:
Willmann, Carl. Il Manuale del Prestigiatore Moderno. Rome: E. Perino, 1895. Full golden leather, the banded spine divided into six panels with the title stamped in gold on a brown leather inlay. Top edge gilt, decorative endsheets. In a contoured felt-lined slipcase with matching marbled sides and leather trim. Lacking title page. Illustrated with engravings. 8vo. Light foxing, else good. Foxing only on the first pages, some of which have been repaired (professionally). The book was published in weekly instalments, starting in 1895. It is the first part of the German book as in the "Original" tab and it's the only one published. Willmann translated Prof. Hoffmann's "Modern Magic" and most of the contents come from the Hoffmann book. Quite rare.
