Written around the second half of the 18th century by an unkown author, The Notebook's handwritten pages contain over 81 different tricks, sleights and subtleties with cards. This is believed to be one of the first magic books intended to be studied by magicians. As a result, many of the items included seem surprisingly modern. Despite being over 200-years-old, much of this material could pass for current creations!

 

Will Houston has painstakingly transcribed the original, hard-to-read handwriting, which is provided alongside facsimile copies of the pages. Additional notes are also included, which can be used to aid in the understanding of the text. Also included are biographies of the performers mentioned in the original text. A dating section explains the features of the text, which allow The Notebook's completion date to be estimated.
