              DOVER PUBLICATIONS INC. Item #: 1253 -

A magician skilled in the craft is able to convince an audience that he or she can read minds, communicate with the spirit world, make objects appear or disappear, and perform other acts of seemingly genuine magic. Without having mastered the art of presentation or “showmanship,” however, even the most competent sleight-of-hand artist can fall short in performance. With this in mind, noted authority Henning Nelms goes beyond the...

In an absent manner, you place a glass of sherry to your lips, as though bracing yourself for the fray.
