Nouvelles Récréations mathématiques et physiques was the third most important French book published on magic.

This four part book features descriptions of experiments and examples of how various innovative mathematical and magical tricks could be performed. The book was first published in 1769 and included an explanation of the missing square puzzle, building on the earlier work of Sebastiano Serlio. It also includes detailed, illustrated techniques for the performance of the cups and balls trick that is regarded as being greatly influential.

The book was translated into English by William Hooper, being released in 1774 without credit to Guyot.
