The Magic Egg


Appearing to suspend an egg in a very remarkable and curious manner.

Take a pint of water and dissolve in it as much common salt as it will take up; with this brine fill a tall glass, then fill up the remaining space with plain water, pouring it in very carefully down the side of the glass, or into a spoon, to break its fall. The pure water will then float upon the brine, and in appearance, the two liquids will seem as but one. Now take another glass and fill it with common water. If an egg is put into this, it will instantly sink to the bottom; but if, on the contrary, the egg is put into the glass containing the brine, it will sink through the plain water only and float upon that portion which is saturated with salt.

Science is a key component of doing many remarkable things.

We couldn't find the author of this collection but it's a compilation of tricks so old and classical we are reasonably convinced no one will complain so long as we give due respect to the craft and the magicians who practice it.

Hundreds of Amazing Parlor Tricks!

We did not invent these tricks and claim only the credit for the restoration, formatting, and strategic derivatives.

To help protect against grifters and flimflams we recommend you learn as many as you can at a rate of one or two a day. Even if you don't practice each trick, read and understand how they work.
