If you're referring to The Jerry Lewis Book of Tricks and Magic
(my first magic book purchase BTW), I'm not convinced Jerry had anything to do with anything in the book except having his name on the title. A few years ago I found a copy of the same book in the kid's section of a public library except it had a different title and no references to Jerry Lewis. Aside from the covers, the two books were identical including the photo illustrations. I don't remember if it was printed before or after the Jerry Lewis version that I have.
