Latest Magic is the last book in Hoffmann’s series “Modern Magic”, “More Magic” and “Later Magic”. Hoffmann had quite some problem finding a publisher for this book. The reason being the quality of the contents. When “Modern Magic” came out it explained new tricks and tricks which were performed at the time. Thus it was indeed ‘modern’. It is also without a doubt the best book in the series. “Latest Magic” describes Hoffmann’s own creations and dealt with a magic which was already considered old fashioned. From a historical perspective it still makes quite an interesting read.
