Available for proofreading: How to Do Mechanical Tricks

Our latest Distributed Proofreaders project is another volume from dime novel publisher Frank Tousey‘s Ten Cent Hand Book series: How to Do Mechanical Tricks. As the subtitle puts it, this small volume contains “complete instruction for performing over sixty ingenious mechanical tricks.” Containing many illustrations, this book provided quite a few ideas for the amateur magician.

To help create an electronic edition of this text (and perhaps learn a few new tricks from 1902 in the process), you can learn more about the proofreading process from this earlier blog post, then join in the work at the project page.
