All,

I have an idea for a book featuring well-known (by magicians) old prop tricks adapted in a very specific and novel way. Think Chinese rice bowls, Chinese wands, (heck... anything with "Chinese" in front of it). I learned these tricks either by buying the props from a magic shop as a kid, or by reading Bill Tarr, old books by Harry Blackstone, and so on.

Are there a few good sources you could share with me that include lots of these "classics"--tricks so old that they essentially belong to "nobody"? I want to go through a *large* number of these to sort out which will be appropriate for the theme of my project.

One more question: say I readapt something by (for example) Joseph Dunninger? Is it sufficient for me to say "this is based on an old idea by..."?

Thanks!

Ben
