Conjuring Tricks, author and exact date unknown. I was seven years old when we moved house into an old and crumbling vicarage. I found a set of magic tricks in a box in the attic. Most of the tricks are long-since lost or broken since I was only a small boy at the time, but I still have the instruction book. I have scanned every page.
