This is the SCARCE 1952 Henneberry edition of Ganthony's classic vent opus, "Practical Ventriloquism."
It was reprinted apparently using the original plates.
Ganthony was a Victorian-era entertainer who was quite well known in Great Britain. He was a society entertainer and was well-qualified to write a book on ventriloquism. This volume pretty much covers it all...from speech production to mastering lip movement to operating the ventriloquial figure. Of special interest is the section on various types of vent novelties. There's at least one idea in there that I think would be a winner today!
128pp, approximately 5-1/4" x 7-3/4" with softcover. This copy is nice and tight with minor soiling on front and back cover along with a few chips, plus pencil marks. Originally owned by well-known vent Jay Hurwtiz
Comes in an archival mylar sleeve with acid-free backboard.
