Paul Rosini's Magical Gems by Rufus Steele

After Rosini's death, Frederick Braue wrote in the February, 1949 issue of Hugard's Magic Monthly, "What a book Rosini could have written - and now his knowledge of audiences is lost. Others, take note." Unfortunately, Rosini never did get the chance to write a book detailing his own methods. He planned on writing one, but his dream was never realized during his lifetime.

In 1947 Paul approached his longtime friend and fellow magician Rufus Steele to aid him in writing a book of his tricks. Steele was a mysterious character whose background was questionable to say the least. An electrical engineer by trade, Rufus was also a gambler and card trickster. Rosini died before he and Steele had the chance to complete the book. So, in 1950, Steele published Paul Rosini's Magical Gems as a memorial to his friend Paul. Rosini's knowledge was not lost.

The prolific author of conjuring Robert Parrish is credited with only editing the book, but it was actually Parrish who wrote the volume. Parrish related in his 1994 book Words About Wizards that Steele was "incapable of writing a grammatical sentence." For this reason, Steele had Parrish write Paul Rosini's Magical Gems.
