Product Information

The Feints and Temps of Harry Riser includes Harry's handling of eight fabulous coin routines including his famous – Cap and Quarters The Mexican Jumping Coins Close-Up Miser Two Coin Interlude The Purse Swindle Purse Jam Copper; Silver; Gold. Illustrated by Earle Oakes. Excellent book, entertaining to read.

The "feints" and "temps" in the elegant title of this fat new book hail from The Secrets of Conjuring and Magic, by Robert-Houdin. The former word of course refers to a pretense or simulated action, while the latter, loosely translated from French, refers to "favorable moment." Although both are used to advantage in Harry Riser's extensive repertoire, which we'll get to in a moment, we should pause to note that Harry's references to these words, by page number, indicate that we are dealing here with a classicist. Throughout The Feints and Temps of Harry Riser, Harry quotes from Erdnase, Robert-Houdin, Downs, Hofzinser, and Bobo, among others, evidencing a thorough grounding in classical magic literature via his own studies and through such mentors as Dai Vernon and Charlie Miller.
