Out Numbered

David Devlin

Out Numbered by David DevlinThree boxed decks of cards are displayed to three spectators. It is explained that in the first two decks, two specific cards have been placed in two psychologically strategic spots. In the third deck, is proof that the psychological experiment is successful. This third deck is kept by the performer, but is always in full view.

The two spectators take their decks out of the boxes, and use business cards to randomly arrive at two different playing cards. The two cards from the first spectator’s deck are used to create a card. Let’s say that the two cards are the Two of Diamonds and the...

Article3

Dee Christopher

Article3 by Dee ChristopherArticle3 is Dee Christopher's take on the classic "Three Article Test", which has previously been approached by the likes of Gene Grant (Phantini), Jack Miller and Eddie Joseph; however, all of the previous solutions have involved unjustified actions and often complicated crib sheets and processes. In Article3, all of the issues have been destroyed, leaving you with a perfect method for a wildly impressive demonstration of psychometry.

The basic effect is that three participants each hide one of three items (For instance; a coin, a ring and a watch) in their pocket while the mentalist is turned away or...

Scripted #16: Zodiac and Mom's Favorite

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #16: Zodiac and Mom's Favorite by Larry BrodahlFor parlor or stage

Two tricks in one. Each with nearly identical handling but widely different effects.

In ZODIAC, you show a spectator pictures, one at a time, letting the spectator say "stop" whenever they wish. Their selection turns out to have been predicted in a message hanging in full view of the audience.

In MOM'S FAVORITE, you show the spectators playing cards, one at a time, again letting a spectator say "stop". Their selection turns out to have been predicted in a message hanging in full view of the audience the entire show.

Two separate scripts, all pictures and predictions...

Dr. RaMayne's Spirit Manifestations

Robert A. Nelson

Dr. RaMayne's Spirit Manifestations by Robert A. NelsonWeird, eerie and baffling pseudo spirit manifestations are easy to accomplish with very little preparation or expense, once you know how.

That was the first line of Nelson's catalog ad for this nearly impossible to find manuscript, detailing the methods of fake mediums and con artists who presented seances to bilk the public. Why is this title so hard to find? Primarily because it was only advertised in three of the Nelson Enterprises catalogs. Some feel that the methods were used to spawn new fraudsters, instead of being used to inform the innocent public. Others believe that Nelson was...

Controlled Actions

Devin Knight

Controlled Actions by Devin KnightEffect: The magician says he will attempt to control a spectator's actions. The magician displays three envelopes numbered 1, 2, and 3 saying these are predictions. A participant selects three cards from a regular deck. The performer shows the participant three blank envelopes and asks for a number from 1 to 3.

The magician proceeds to write that number on the envelope and the participant takes one of his selections (no force) and the magician slides it into the envelope with the number the spectator named. This process is repeated with the other two envelopes and cards. The performer then...

Illusioni ed Evasioni

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Illusioni ed Evasioni by Ulysses Frederick Grant"Grandi effetti, piccolo costo!" Questo motto riassume in breve le potenzialità di questo grande classico del Maestro Grant. Se cerchi numeri che stupiscano il tuo pubblico, che siano facili da eseguire e che abbiano l'aspetto di Grandi Illusioni quasi a costo zero da costruire con facilità, allora questo è quello che ti serve! Per chi conosce Grant, non ha bisogno di spiegazioni. Le sue idee semplici e geniali resistono e oltrepassano lo scorrere del tempo. Le illusioni spaziano nel campo dell'escapologia, ma non solo.

Edward Victor

Magic of the Hands (softcover) by Edward VictorThis is the second edition from 1942, published by Max Holden. Some stains on the back cover and the last pages, and some damage to the spine, otherwise in good condition.

This is a classic in sleight-of-hand magic. From the foreword:

This BOOK is mainly on the art of sleight-of-hand and it is my earnest hope that these pages will afford practical help to both the specialist and the amateur magician.

During the period of over twenty-five years of practical magic I have formed the conclusion that in all conjuring, no matter how cleanly a trick may have been worked, it is the effect that...

This is volume two in the classic sleight-of-hand trilogy. From the foreword:

Since many branches of Magic are again represented in this volume, a close study of it will, I sincerely hope, assist the reader in perhaps making some little change, addition or improvement in an existing 'move' or effect in which he may be interested.

I have included in this book my method of working and presenting "The Chinese Rings," mainly for those of...

George Brunel

Fun With Magic (hardcover) by George BrunelThis edition is from Hurst & Co. Cover some damage on the upper left corner. Dust jacket is falling apart. Otherwise, including binding, in very good condition.

Amusing Experiments in Physics, Chemistry and Geometry

The title is a little bit misleading, because there are no real magic tricks in this book, at least not the kind that a magician would assume. It is essentially a book of 'kitchen' science experiments. Some of these experiments can of course be presented like a magic trick. But the majority of them are simply interesting or surprising science experiments which can be done at...

Fools of Fortune (hardcover) by John Philip QuinnThis is an 1892 edition in good condition.

The original description read:

A history of the vice in ancient and modern times, and in both hemispheres; an exposition of its alarming prevalence and destructive effects; with an unreserved and exhaustive disclosure of such frauds, tricks and devices as are practiced by "professional" gamblers, "confidence men" and "bunko steerers."
This is a massive tome on gambling, the largest one at that time, describing gambling locations, games, scams, fraud and how they are operated, as well as many personal stories from the author. Makes for fascinating...

John Ramsay was called "The Magician's Magician" because even for those in the know he could create miracles. He consistently fooled his peers with his incredible skill, misdirection and unique thinking. Here are a few quotes about him:

"... We are not given to uncritical boosts.... But it is difficult to write with moderation of the work of Johnnie Ramsay. His sleight of hand is unexcelled, perhaps even unequalled. Performers who know all there is to know about the Cups and Balls are not...
