Description

“Indian Conjuring” by L. H. Branson is as the title suggests a work on the magic and magicians of India. The book's first paragraph gives a good sense of its contents:

“Since the world began Magic and wizardy seem to have held a great fascination for mankind, an example being in the story of the Witch of Endor. That this tendency has in no wise altered is clear from the popularity of conjurors, illusionists, and so called magicians who still, be it East or West, attract an audience so easily and so surely. This little volume is written in the hopes that it may prove of interest to the thousands who reside in India, and those other thousands who, visiting its coral shores from time to time, often discuss in wondering amazement how the Indian conjuror performs his tricks. It is also written to uphold the reputation of the Western conjuror against the spurious ascendancy held by his Eastern confrere.”

We note that this book was first published in 1922. It contains some generalizations about race and nationality which modern readers might find offensive. Despite this, we believe this book is of value for the detailed descriptions (often with accompanying pictures) of many interesting magic tricks performed by Indian magicians at the time of writing.
