by Faucett Ross

A fascinating glimpse inside the mind and methods of Dai Vernon, edited by one of his closest friends and confidants.

Contains the text and extras from the famous limited edition "Twenty Dollar Manuscript," plus two additional manuscripts that provide 14 additional close-up miracles.

Also contains the seldom-seen "Prospectus" that Vernon and Ross provided to a hand-picked list of magicians to inform them of the availability of the $20 manuscript.

A total of 27 miracles that can be performed by most any magician of average ability.

Studded with photographs of the persons involved, and other bits of Vernon memorabilia.
