This first edition is a classic of magic and includes Dai Vernon's linking rings moves and cups and balls routine. It uses high quality B&W photos throughout to show many of the moves. 

The book has a partially torn spine. See pictures.

Each routine ends with an outline of the routine, which is great for practicing from. Highly Recommended.
