[Frikell, Wiljalba (1818 (or 1816) - 1903)], ed. by William Henry Cremer Jr. [The books give no indication of the author of the following, but both BMC and NUC generally state it is George Arnold (1834-1865) or Wiljalba (?= Gustave – I thought Gustave might be a son of Wiljalba, but the son was named Adalbert) Frikell, sometimes with Frikell as UK editor of Arnold's US version – but several UK versions say they are translated and edited by W. H. Cremer Jr, and one even cites an earlier French book (though this may not exist!). The names of Frank Cahill, Henry Llewellyn Williams (1842- ) and Gustave Frikell (Jr.) are sometimes associated with versions of these as authors or coauthors. The back of the TP of Bellew's The Art of Amusing, Hotten, 1866?, says The Secret Out is a companion volume, just issued, by Hermann Frikell. The Preface of The Sociable says that most of the Parlor Theatricals are by Frank Cahill and George Arnold, so perhaps they weren't involved in the puzzle material?? – Toole Stott 640 opines that this reference led Harry Price to ascribe these works to these authors. Toole Stott 481 cites a 1910 letter from Harris B. Dick, of the publishers Dick & Fitzgerald. He says Magician's Own Book was assembled in the US – his father was an enthusiastic magician and 'may have had the book edited by H. L. Williams' and John Wyman, who is thanked in the book, was probably a friend involved. Dick adds that he thinks The Secret Out "was a reprint of an English book by W. H. Cremer" and describes The Boy's Own Conjuring Book as a reprint of Magician's Own Book "evidently gotten up and printed in London, but singularly enough it had printed in the book on the title-page – New York, Dick & Fitzgerald." C&B, under Cremer, say "It is believed that they were all written by H. L. Williams, a prolific hack writer of the period." C&B list them all under Williams, Henry Llewellyn ("W. Frikell"), and say to also see Cremer. To add to the confusion, the US and UK versions of the same title are often different! I will give the full title and authorship from the TP.]


The Book of 500 Curious Puzzles: Containing a Large Collection of Entertaining Paradoxes, Perplexing Deceptions in Numbers, and Amusing Tricks in Geometry. By the author of "The Sociable," "The Secret Out," "The Magician's Own Book," "Parlor Games," and "Parlor Theatricals," etc. Illustrated with a great Variety of Engravings. Dick & Fitzgerald, NY, 1859. Apparently compiled from The Sociable (qv) and Magician's Own Book. [Toole Stott 103 lists it as anonymous. NUC, under Frikell, says to see title. NUC, under Book, also has an 1882 ed, compiled by William B. Dick. Christopher 129.]

This book is clearly a compilation and a publisher's ad in the back explicitly says: "The above five books are compiled from the "Sociable" and "Magician's Own."", referring to: The Parlor Magician [Toole Stott 543, 544]; Book of Riddles and Five Hundred Home Amusements [Toole Stott 107, 951]; Book of Fireside Games [possibly Toole Stott 300]; Parlor Theatricals; The Book of 500 Curious Puzzles. However, [Toole Stott 951] is another version of The Book of Riddles and Five Hundred Home Amusements "by the author of "Fireside Games" [Toole Stott 300], "The Parlor Magic" [perhaps Toole Stott 543, 544], "Parlor Tricks with Cards" [Toole Stott 1056 lists this as by Frikell, "abridged from The Secret Out"; see also 547, 1142], ..."; Dick & Fitzgerald, 1986 [sic, but must mean 1886??].] The entire section Puzzles and Curious Paradoxes, pp. 3 36, is identical to the same section in The Sociable, pp. 285-318. Many of the later problems are identical to the Boy's Own Book and a woodcut, a poem and the introduction to a section are taken directly from Boy's Own Book. See also: Boy's Own Book; Boy's Own Conjuring Book; Illustrated Boy's Own Treasury; Indoor and Outdoor; Landells: Boy's Own Toy-Maker; The Secret Out; Hanky Panky; The Sociable.

Hanky Panky A Book of Conjuring Tricks By the Author of "The Secret Out." Edited by W. H. Cremer, Jun. Very Easy Tricks and Very Difficult Tricks, Diversions with Dice, Conjuring with Cards, Jugglery with and without Assistants, Gamblers' Deceptions Exposed, &c. A New Edition, With 250 Practical Illustrations. C&W, 1875, HB. [BMC and Toole Stott 193 have John Camden Hotten, 1872, while C&B give London, 1872. Toole Stott and C&B list the book under Cremer. NUC has C&W, 1872. C&W succeeded Hotten on his death in 1873. Toole Stott 1017 & Shortz have C&W, 1875. NUC says it is also attributed to Henry Llewellyn Williams, but the entry under Williams says 'supposed author'. C&B also list it under Williams.] This has a green cover with black pictures of a magician and six tricks,four in corner quadrants. The FP is coloured. There is an insert slip advertising "The Secret Out Series" and a similar ad on the back of the TP.

John Grant, Edinburgh, nd [Toole Stott 1016 gives 1874; NUC gives 1875?], HB. [Christopher 235, under Cremer, is Grant, c1890.] This has a yellow cover with black pictures showing a magician and four tricks in squares at the corners. The back of the TP is blank. Pagination as above, except there are only 2pp of publisher's ads for The "Secret Out" Series. Otherwise, the books are identical.

The Magician's Own Book, or The Whole Art of Conjuring. Being a Complete Hand-Book of Parlor Magic, and Containing over One Thousand Optical, Chemical, Mechanical, Magnetical, and Magical Experiments, Amusing Transmutations, Astonishing Sleights and Subtleties, Celebrated Card Deceptions, Ingenious Tricks with Numbers, Curious and Entertaining Puzzles, Together with All the Most Noted Tricks of Modern Performers. The Whole Illustrated with over 500 Wood Cuts, and Intended as a Source of Amusement for One Thousand and One Evenings. Dick & Fitzgerald, NY, 1857, HB. 12 + 362 pp. + 10 pp. publisher's ads. Present from Slocum. [Toole Stott 481 lists this as anonymous and entirely different from the UK ed. He cites a 1910 letter from Harris B. Dick which says H. L. Williams may have edited it, but both Dick's father and John Wyman may also have had a hand in it. Toole Stott 929, 930, 1378, 931 lists Dick & Fitzgerald, 1862, 1866, 1868, 1870, all apparently identical to the 1857. 929-930 are listed under Arnold and he there cites Cushing's Anonyms as saying the book is by Arnold and Cahill. Christopher 622-625 are all Dick & Fitzgerald; 622-623 are 1st ed., 624-625 are reprints of about the same time. NUC lists this as by George Arnold (1834-1865) and Frank Cahill, under both Arnold and Cahill. C&B list it under Cremer, attributed to Arnold & Cahill, but they give a date of 1851, which must be a transcription error. C&B also list it under Magician's, from New York, 1857, and under Williams, but as London, 1857.]

Christopher 242 cites the following article on this series.

Charles L. Rulfs. Origins of some conjuring works. Magicol 24 (May 1971) 3-5. He discusses the various books, saying that Cremer essentially pirated the Dick & Fitzgerald productions. He says The Magician's Own Book draws on Wyman's Handbook (1850), Endless Amusement, Parlour Magic (by W. Clarke? (1830s)), Brewster's Natural Magic.

Christopher 622 says Harold Adrian Smith [Dick and Fitzgerald Publishers; Books at Brown 34 (1987) 108-114] has studied this book and concludes that Williams was the author, assisted by Wyman. Actually Smith simply asserts: "The book was undoubedly [sic] written by H. L. Williams, a "hack writer" of the period, assisted by John Wyman in the technical details." He gives no explanation for his assertion, but it may be based on the C&B quote given above. He later says he doubts whether Cremer ever wrote anything.

Starts on p. vii; pp. vii-xii + 13-326 + separately paginated publisher's catalogue of 32pp. [This is quite different than the US book of the same name.]

[The Hotten list of Very Important New Books is at the beginning on pp. i-ii. This lists Magician's Own Book as by the Author of "The Secret Out" and The Secret Out as by the Author of the "Magician's Own Book". But a further note says "Under the title of "Le Magicien des Salons" the first has long been a standard Magic Book with all French and German Professors of the Art." The Preliminary text on pp. ix-x is almost identical in all three forms – the Hotten has the address Piccadilly at the end and has the page number on p. x. The Preliminary says this is "an Entirely New Edition" and is by the same author as The Secret Out. It refers to Cremer's display of Toys of the World at the recent International Exhibition (possibly in 1862??) and to [Frank Bellew's] "The Art of Amusing" (of 1866 and published by Hotten in 1870) and Clara Bellew's "The Merry Circle" (c1860) 'just' or 'recently' issued. The Grant edition has a much simpler TP, with the text much reduced and no illustration, but says A New Edition With 200 Practical Illustrations. All versions have the same Contents pages, pp. xi-xii, except the Hotten has the page number on p. xii, and the actual text starts with p. 13. The Grant and C&W editions omit the first pages i-vi. My copies of the Hotten and C&W editions have almost identical blue covers, but with a slight change of the illustrations at the bottom.

Toole Stott 194 lists the 1871 Hotten ed. under Cremer. Christopher 239 lists it as "An entirely new edition" with 200 illustrations, 325 pp. + 30 pp. publisher's ads. Toole Stott 1015 is the John Grant, 1871. C&B, under Cremer, have London, 1871 with no indication of the New York ed. C&B also list it under Williams.]

All these copies have identical green covers with five magic tricks on the cover.

[Toole Stott 192 discusses the authorship, saying that Wiljalba (or Gustave) Frikell is named on the TP of some editions, but that most of the tricks are taken from the US ed of The Magician's Own Book. In the US ed, The Author acknowledges his indebtedness to The Sociable and The Magician's Own Book 'and many other works of similar character and value', but claims 'that the greater portion of it [i.e. the book] is entirely original.' In the Preliminary to the UK ed he says he is indebted to '"Le Magicien des Salons," revised by references to Decremps, Servière, Leopold, Besson, Kircher, Hildebrandt, Ozanam, &c., &c.' though an 1874 ad by C&W indicates that it is translated from Le Magicien des Salons. (This may be Le Magicien de Société, Delarue, Paris, c1860, but see Rulfs, below.) The back of the TP of Bellew's The Art of Amusing, Hotten, 1866?, says The Secret Out is a companion volume, just issued, by Hermann Frikell. BM & Toole Stott say it is also attributed to Henry L. Williams. Toole Stott 481 cites a 1910 letter from Harris B. Dick, of the publishers Dick & Fitzgerald, who thinks their version of The Secret Out "was a reprint of an English book by W. H. Cremer" – but there seems to be no record of a UK ed before the US one. NUC says an 1871 ed. gives author as Gustave Frikell. Christopher 240-242 are two copies from Dick & Fitzgerald, c1859, and a C&W, 1878? He repeats most of the above comments from Toole Stott and 242 cites the Rulfs article mentioned under Magician's Own Book, above. Rulfs says The Secret Out is largely taken, illustrations and all, from Blismon de Douai's Manuel du Magicien (1849) and Richard & Delion's Magicien des salons ou le diable couleur de rose (1856 and earlier?). H. A. Smith [op. cit. under Magician's Own Book] says the first US ed is 1869 (this must be a misprint or misreading – though the date is a little hard to read in my copy, it is clearly 1859) and the UK eds are basically a condensed version with a few additions. He suggests the book is taken from DeLion. He doubts whether Cremer ever wrote anything. C&B, under Gustave Frikell, say it is a translation of Richard & Delion. C&B, under Herrman Frikell, list London, 1870. C&B, under Secret, list New York, nd. C&B also list it under Williams, as London, 1871.

[Toole Stott 1056 is [Frikell, Wiljalba]; Parlor Tricks with Cards, ...; By the Author of Book of Riddles and 500 Home Amusements, etc.; Dick & Fitzgerald, 1860?; which is described as "abridged from The Secret Out. Toole Stott 547 and 1142 are two versions of 1863, but without the description of the author and hence listed anonymously.]

The US and UK editions are fairly different. The US ed has 382 sections, of which 157 (41%) are used in the UK ed. The UK ed has 323 sections, so 51% of it is taken from the US ed. The US ed seems like a magic book, with chapters on Scientific amusements and Miscellaneous Tricks. The UK ed has much less magic and tricks, adding other general tricks and a lot more scientific tricks. The illustrations for the common sections are not quite identical – one was probably copied from the other. The amount taken from The Magician's Own Book and The Sociable is fairly small, perhaps 10% from each, in either edition.

The Sociable; or, One Thousand and One Home Amusements. Containing Acting Proverbs; Dramatic Charades; Acting Charades, or Drawing-room Pantomimes; Musical Burlesques; Tableaux Vivants; Parlor Games; Games of Action; Forfeits; Science in Sport, and Parlor Magic; and a Choice Collection of Curious Mental and Mechanical Puzzles; &c, &c. Illustrated with nearly three hundred engravings and diagrams, the whole being a fund of never-ending entertainment. By the author of "The Magician's Own Book." Dick & Fitzgerald, NY, 1858, 375pp + 8pp publisher's ads [Toole Stott 640 and C&B list this as anonymous]; G. G. Evans, Philadelphia, nd, but the back of the title gives ©1858 by Dick & Fitzgerald, NY, HB. Identical text and cover (except with less gilding), but the 8pp of ads for Dick & Fitzgerald (!) are different than in the other version and the book is a bit thinner, probably due to use of lighter paper. [Toole Stott 481 indicates this was compiled by Dick & Fitzgerald. The entire section Puzzles and Curious Paradoxes, pp. 285-318, is identical to the same section in Book of 500 Puzzles, pp. 3-36. Rulfs (mentioned above under Magician's Own Book) says this borrows from the same sources, with more taken from Endless Amusement and Parlour Magic. Toole Stott notes the Preface's reference to Cahill and Arnold and suggests that this led Harry Price to ascribe this and the related books to these authors. Christopher 947-949. C&B, under the title has New York, 1858.]

A New Chinese Puzzle, The Above Consists of Seven Pieces of Ivory or Wood, viz. 5 Triangles, 1 Rhomboid, and 1 Square, which will form the 292 Characters, contained in this Book; Observing the Seven pieces must be used to form each Character. NB. This Edition has been corrected in all its angles, with great care and attention. Engraved by Sy Hall, 14 Bury Street, Bloomsbury. Nd, watermarked 1815. 31 plates with 292 problems. PHOTOCOPY from Slocum. Sy probably is an abbreviation of Sydney (or possibly Stanley?). (I have seen a copy in the BL, bound with a large folding Plate 2 by Hall, which has 83 examples with solution lines drawn in (by hand??), possibly one of four sheets giving all the problems (or solutions) in the book. However there is no relationship between the Plate and the book – problems are randomly placed and often drawn in different orientation. Above the title is the admonition: NB. The seven Pieces must be used to form each Character. I have a photocopy of the plate on two A3 sheets. Hordern has a copy of the book.) [Not in Christopher, Hall, Heyl, Toole Stott.]

[There were 2nd ed, 1900, 4th ed, 1902, and 6th ed., 1907; the Strens collection has 9th ed, 1920; I have had a 10th ed., nd [c1925]. 1st ed has a plain red cover; later eds have embossed and multicoloured cover, with 8th being more heavily embossed than the 4th and others that I recall. The 10th ed had a less coloured TP. Parlett's History, p. 160, says this is the same text as Comtesse de Blanccœur's Le Livre Illustré des Patiences, Brussels (Parlett gives no date, but implies mid 19C; the Strens collection has a 3rd ed. of 1880), but Hoffmann makes no mention of Blanccœur, so they may both derive from an earlier German book?? I have seen an anonymous Illustrirtes Buch der Patiencen, 2nd ed., J. H. Kern's Verlag (Max Müller), nd, np, c1875, with 60 games, whose first three have names equivalent to Hoffmann's, but Hoffmann has 63 games, so it is not a straight translation.]
