Hereward Carrington was a magician and psychic researcher.

He’s notable for being an associate of and working with Harry Houdini investigating psychics.
Carrington soon became an enemy of Houdini and truth when he was caught aiding and covering frauds who were faking spiritualistic feats.
Carrington would go on to write about psychics and the “research” he had done.
This book however is a magic manual he wrote. Inside Magic For Everyone are notes on the dress and props of a magician, instructions on card tricks and techniques, parlour tricks, coin tricks, tricks with hankerchiefs, eggs, and pieces of apparatus of general utility.
