By Victor Farelli, Nobody knows how old the Chinese Rings are as a magical routine but certainly they were performed in China several centuries ago and are still performed and amaze audiences today. There are few books on the rings but Davenports have published this one which we believe was one of the finest ever written. The author Victor Farelli, a performer of some note, learned this routine from Claudius Odin in France in 1924 and wrote this book originally in 1931 since when Davenports have published it ever since. So, it has stood the test of time. It requires a full classic 8 ring set which comprises a Key Ring, Two Single, a Double and a Triple. There are 30 excellent illustrations. Soft back, 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches, 68 pages.
