These excellent books give a brief, understandable overview of nearly every major principle in magic. -John Carney, SecretsConduits, Liquid Substitutes, Displacement, Siphons, and Hydraulic and Pneumatic Control. The author traces hydraulics and pneumatics as used in the religious wonders of early history - moving and speaking statues, inexhaustible vessels, unfillable basins, and more. He then continues with modern classics like Lota Bowl, Foo Can, Multum in Parvo, Mermaid Illusion, various automats, etc. S.H. Sharpe covers 30 Specific Principles and gives over 80 examples of these principles being used in magic. Also included in this book are two special appendices: 1)Scientific Magical Invention and Characterization - a system on which to base the scientific invention or creation of new magical illusions. 2)What Happened to Psycho? - an essay whcih traces the chronbology of the automation from 1875 to modern times. This outstanding instructive book is a must, it contains techniques every magician should know about. This volume is one of a series of four books describing the basic principles of magic. The other books in the series are Conjurers' Mechanical Secrets, Conjurers' Optical Secrets, and Conjurers' Psychological Secrets.
