This is the rare McArdle reprint of the 1600's book Hocus Pocus Junior. This is a 1950 reprint limited to only 50 copies and this copy is inscribed on the inside cover page, "To my friend and fellow magician, Richard G. Gray, with best wishes, sincerely, John McArdle, Oct 5th, 1953."
Historians consider this to be the first "illustrated" magic book printed in the english language as well as the first to really go into detail on the cups and balls. Ricky Jay refers to this book in his show when he performs the cups and balls.
