Gibeciere Vol. 4, No. 2 (Summer 2009) by Conjuring Arts Research Center - Book
- Send to a Friend
|Similar to the Summer 2007 issue where we reprinted Horatio Galasso's Giochi di carte belissimi (Most beautiful card games), this issue features a new and complete translation of Engaños a ojos vistas (Deceptions in Plain Sight) by Pablo Minguet è Yrol. Published in 1733, Minguet was Spain's first book devoted to the teaching of conjuring secrets. This is the first time his examplary early text has been translated into English. |
In addition to the translation, there are also introductory and supplementary articles by Stephen Minch, Juan Tamariz, and Enrique Jimènez-Martinez, including a checklist of editions by Mr. Jimènez-Martinez and William Kalush.
Original copies of Minguet are rather rare so it is a real treat to offer this translation which, combined with the supplementary materials, provides a unique opportunity to learn a great deal about a fascinating and previously inaccessible work.
