“Tricks and Traps” by Clifton Wooldridge


1-1-Tricks & Traps

In my private collection of books and pamphlets from around 1900 I have this interesting little pamphlet which has survived here into the 21st Century.

It is Clifton R. Woolridge’s Tricks and Traps

It contains “over 100 varieties of confidence games, fakir’s snares and swindles worked on the unwary” from the notebooks of “America’s Sherlock Holmes.” 

The stories are fascinating, and I learned a lot of valuable information from this book which has been very helpful along the way. 

It is out of copyright, so naturally I decided to scan it and sell it to my friends and fellow travelers…

This little stapled pamphlet went for only two bits when I bought it. But water was free then…

It’s FIFTY CENTS now. You can find it HERE

I hope you enjoy it!

About Pop Haydn

I am not originally from the 21st Century myself, but have been stuck here by accident--not entirely my fault--with a bunch of other maroons from another very different time and place... Nevertheless, my companions and I love it here and just like everyone else we are just trying to get by in this exciting and progressive era. With a variety show of steampunk-oriented magic, comedy and music, Pop's company entertains and sells a few bottles of Amazing Miracle Oil, Wonder Elixer, or Magnetized Water.
