Much wear to the book and jacket, some glue left on endpapers from homemade jacket protector; jacket is chipped, rubbed, creased, acouple of closed tears, tape repaired on reverse. First published by George Sully & Co in 1927. Howard Thurston (1869 1936) was a stage magician from Columbus, Ohio. Thurston was deeply impressed after he attended magician Alexander Herrmann's magic show and was determined to equal his work. He eventually became the most famous magician of his time. Thurston's traveling magic show was the biggest one of all; it was so large that it needed eight train cars to transport his road show. Known as the "King of Cards" he is still famous for his work with playing cards.
