SeriesThe Conjurer Library

Dinkum Magic is the first book by J. Albert Briggs, Australian magician.


The contents of this book are portion of a larger M.S.S. prepared for publication in the U.S.A. over ten years ago. Owing to war-time conditions, however, the publisher went out of business; and, at that time the publication of magical books was not encouraging.

Several of the items have previously appeared in the pages of "The Conjurer"; one, "The Flying Dice" as far back as 1909; but as this magazine was issued for private circulation only, it may not be as well known as it deserves.

Each item has figured in the writer's repertoire, and they have always been successful; therefore there can be no question about them being practical. For the benefit of those readers who wish to make up the illusion described herein, H.P drawings have been prepared, and photographs are also available. Price will be quoted on request.

It is commonly asserted that if a magician finds one good trick in a book, he purchases. If this is so, then we think the majority of readers will be amply repaid for their perusal of "DINKUM MAGIC."
