Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing.

If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Miracle Mongers and Their Methods: A Complete Expose of the Modus Operandi of Fire Eaters, Heat Resisters, Poison Eaters, Venomous Reptile Defiers, Sword Swallowers, Human Ostriches, Strong Men, Etc So I do not feel that I need to apologize for adding another volume to the shelves of works dealing with the marvels of the miracle mongers. My business has given me an in timate knowledge of stage illusions, together with many years of experience among show people of all types. My familiarity with the former, and what I have learned of the psy chology of the latter, has placed me at a cer tain advantage in uncovering the natural ex planation of feats that to the ignorant have seemed supernatural. And even if my readers are too well informed to be interested in my descriptions of the methods of the various per formers who have seemed to me worthy of at tention in these pages, I hope they will find some amusement in following the fortunes and misfortunes of all manner of strange folk who once bewildered the wise men of their day. If I have accomplished that much, I shall feel Mply repaid for my labor. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
