Hello all, first off I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, I thought this was the appropriate place to post. Secondly, hello! I am new to the world of magic in general and am currently practicing card magic planning to get through RRTCM and Card College. However, I thought with my limited budget I should see if I could take advantage of the public domain of books. However, I had trouble trying to find books pre-20th century that dealt with teaching the general principles rather than list a bunch of tricks while not dealing with the fundamentals and good habits to develop in order to do said trick. A 3-minuite quick trick Youtube video in text form perhaps is the best way to describe it. So I wanted to ask you all if any books Pre-20th Century/Early 1900's are good for a beginner to read. The only I have found that I may add to my list is Modern Magic by Professor Hoffman, I was hoping there were some other books worthy of getting.
