Quality Magic by Okito

From the Foreword: This is my first book on Magic, and it will probably be my last, because its contents are the result of my life’s work.All the sleights and tricks explained in this book have been worked by me; therefore I know they are practical. One often hears of tricks which seem to be very good theoretically, but which turn out to be anything but good when one tests them by a private rehearsal.
