Fascinating little booklet from Great Britain
in the early 1900's. Fred Rome produced a number of patter books for
magicians; this booklet in the same format was his offering to vents.
Features four different routines plus a great number of "short gags".
Also features a number of ads from magic dealers, including a wonderful
full page ad on the inside from cover from Will Goldston's company
depicting their various vent figures and vent book.
Yes, it's unquestionably dated material. The sad part is, some of it is STILL funnier than some of what I've seen some vents trying to put over to a modern audience. Yikes. Honestly...this is for the rare vent book collector!
Here's a photo of the back cover...
In very fine condition. 15pp, folio-type binding. Measures approximately 5-1/8" x 8-1/2" with soft cover.
Comes in an archival mylar sleeve with acid-free backboard for protection.
