Description

John Booth, in Extending Magic Beyond Credibility, his thirteenth (and possibly best) book on magic, looks back on his more than 70 years of experience with the conjuring arts and considers some of its most enduring mysteries, intriguing questions and fascinating personalities.

From legendary effects such as Robert-Houdin’s Light & Heavy Chest and the Indian Rope Trick to the origins of dove magic, ventriloquism and automata, Extending Magic Beyond Credibility has the famous Booth blend of secrets, biography, philosophy and romantic history.

Whether you’re a student of magic history or simply one fascinated with the art and its many facets, you’ll find Extending Magic Beyond Credibility is more than just a book of magic history. It’s a captivating read you’ll find difficult to put down, written by a man who not only knows his subject…but who lived it as well.

272 pages, photo-illustrated.
