About the Author
Stewart James (1908-1996) was a peculiar, prolific magical genius. A seemingly unending output of original, fresh magical creations flowed from his pen for nearly all of his adult life. Stewart James practiced, invented and created magic; his creativity inspired countless others and his life's work has had a resounding effect in the field of conjuring.
A storehouse of magical knowledge, James was uniquely qualified to compile and edit three volumes of The Encyclopedia of Rope Tricks. All three books, hailed by the fraternity as important, essential works, have been gathered together in this new, revised edition for the first time.
Hardbound. Revised Edition, over 400 pages and over 1,500 illustrations! Includes an introduction by Mac King.

This book is loaded with nine chapters of rope tricks in the following categories; knots, penetrations (2 ropes), penetrations (1 rope), cut and restored rope, impromptu cut and restored rope, cut and restored rope (unprepared rope), cut and restored rope (prepared), miscellaneous rope tricks and the Hindoo rope trick (7 versions). Each chapter as 12-16 tricks! There are quite a few illustrations but the text for each trick is rather spares. Personally, I just learned the Fiber Optics routine by Richard Sanders but I use this book as a handy reference guide. If you want to study rope magic, this will be a great addition to your library.
