There is a book called _Hocus Pocus Junior, the Anatomy of Legerdemain or 
the art of jugling set forth in his proper colours, fully, plinly, and 
exactly so that an ignorant person may thereby learn the full perfection 
of the same, after a little practice_ printed in London in 1638.  It's a 
little late, but quite interesting.  I especially recommend the final 
chapter on trick knives.  It's available through EEBO.

Clay Shevlin asks for references to "jugling".

Are the Ephesian jugglers in C of E the kind you're looking for?

"They say this towne is full of cosenage:
As nimble Iuglers that deceiue the eie:
Darke working Sorcerers that change the minde:
Soule-killing Witches, that deforme the bodie:
Disguised Cheaters, prating Mountebankes;
And manie such like liberties of sinne:
