Trixy Magazine by Mr. Rees

The Digital Trixy. 24 magazines for junior magicians published in the 1940s and a comprehensive index of tricks by Michael Colley together with the full magic catalogue from the Boy Magicians Service in Prestatyn Wales.

Back in the 1940s a lot of young magical enthusiasts joined the Boy Magicians' Club in Prestatyn, North Wales. The club was run by a Mr. Rees who was not only a magician but also performed a marionette show. Mr. Rees produced the Trixy - a wonderful little magic magazine - and from this magazine many young enthusiasts learnt the basics of magic. Eddie Burke was a member and a lot of the older magicians were subscribers. Perhaps Terry Herbert as well. Once one started to subscribe to the magazine and had joined the Boy Magicians' Club one was entitled to wear a little button badge portraying a rabbit coming out of a hat. It was printed in black on a white background.

The Trixy was a little unusual in that it consisted of 24 monthly issues but none of the issues were dated. As soon as you joined the club you would receive issue number one and a month later issue number two and so on until you had received a total of 24 monthly issues. A few years ago Martin Breese was able to purchase a small collection of Trixy magazines and Martin noticed that there were, in some instances, slightly different duplicate copies of the magazines in the set of 24 which meant that over the years Mr. Rees changed and modified the magazines as they were published.

Mr. Rees also issued a wonderful catalogue of magic. The set of 24 issues of the Trixy and the catalogue of magic are reproduced here in this digital version.

1st edition 1940s; 441 pages.
