All the classic works of the great master of magic, Robert-Houdin, under one cover, lavishly illustrated with hundreds of beautiful prints, engravings, and photos. Robert-Houdin (1805-1871) revolutionized the art of magic with his incredible stage mysteries and lifelike automata, and he thankfully left a number of books recording his philosophy and techniques. In Essential Robert-Houdin, you'll find:

 


The Secrets of Conjuring and Magic:
Considered one of the finest magic books ever, featuring coin sleights and effects; card techniques including palming, false shuffles, cuts, and stacked-deck work, with twenty card effects; Cups and Balls methods and routines; stage effects including the Linking Rings, and Robert-Houdin's performance theories and essays on gimmicks, stagecraft, and psychology.


Card-Sharping Exposed:
Robert-Houdin's pioneering work on card handling, with dozens of card techniques and routines. The Secrets of Stage Conjuring: A dozen great stage pieces plus the inside techniques of Robert-Houdin's theatre and optical theories.


The Memoirs of Robert-Houdin:
The most complete version of Robert-Houdin's wonderful autobiography ever published, with material previously omitted from earlier editions. You can now enjoy the complete work that Robert-Houdin envisioned.

The Priory:
The unbelievable secrets of Robert-Houdin's automated house, with remote-control gates and automatic timers.
