A previous reviewer has stated that this book is in "pretty dense Middle English." Not so. It's just in a very old form of what might best be termed, "Early Modern English." The typography makes this more difficult for the modern reader than anything else. The long "s" that looks like "f" confuses the modern reader. However, with a bit of endurance, and some determination, the book can be read and understood.
It is more of a curiosity than anything else. If you want to learn juggling, get "Juggling for the Complete Klutz."

This is a book written by some guy from the Middle Ages. He passes down the art of juggling and magic (which are closely related) which he learned from his father. The english is, to say the least, incredibly difficult. I'm not sure what kind of edition they sell on Amazon, but I got a photocopy of the original printing through the UCSB library, and it's written in dense Middle English. It's pretty interesting if you can wade through the language.
