GREETINGS TO MY MAGICAL FRIENDS THE WORLD OVER

AT long last I have been enabled to complete my long promised book, " The More You Watch—." I cannot write to order, and have therefore preferred to wait until I could complete the book with ideas and effects that are really worth while. I have endeavoured to cater for all tastes, and trust that my readers will find much herein that will be of service and value to them. Not merely pipe dreams, but practical ideas, that in many cases may be elaborated to suit the requirements of the individual performer. Although the contents of this book may be presented with every confidence as described, as has always been my desire, I hope that much of the matter will suggest ideas and problems that will lead my readers to alter and maybe improve the existing effect. I owe a special debt to my good friend William H. Hale, for the excellent illustrations reproduced herein, and trust that my fellow wielders of the wand will find " The More You Watch—" a worthy successor to my previous efforts in the world of magical literature. OSWALD RAE. 17 SURREY ROAD, READING, ENGLAND.

October, 1938.
