After the Dessert
AuthorMartin Gardner
Publication Date1941

After the Dessert was Martin Gardner's third book on magic. It first appeared in mimeograph form with 24 tricks and crude illustrations that he drew himself.

Max Holden later reprinted it with new art by Nelson Hahne and 30 tricks.

The Shakespearean quotation in the front of the book: "After the dessert... 'Tis a goodly time for pleasantry", was made up by Gardner.[1]
