About this Item

Cremer, William Henry, Junior. The magician's own book. London: John Camden Hotten, n.d. (1871). 325(1) pp. 8vo, original blue decorated cloth (ends of spine a bit rubbed).First edition. The second of three conjuring books compiled by Cremer and published by Hotten; The Secret Out appeared earlier in 1871 and Hanky Panky followed in 1872. This volume is listed by the NUC as if it were by the magician Wiljalba Frikell, following suggestions to this effect by Cremer himself, who may have wished to capitalize on the reputation of a well-known conjuror; in fact much of the material here can be traced to an American book printed in the 1850's, The Magician's Own Book. Title-page printed partly in red; with a woodcut frontispiece, and hundreds of illustrations in the text. With a leaf of ads at the front, and a 30-page Hotten catalogue at the end ("Special List for 1872"). A very good copy of an attractive Victorian magic handbook. Toole Stott 194.
