Grant in the Tarbell Magic Course

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Grant in the Tarbell Magic Course by Ulysses Frederick GrantU. F. Grant contributed some of his best material to the Tarbell Course in magic. Most of this material is unique to the Tarbell Course and does not appear elsewhere. Before Grant died, he compiled a manuscript containing all of the material he contributed. It ranges from close up to stage illusions. A lot of magicians don't have the original Tarbell Course, so here is your chance to get all of the tricks he created and contributed in one place. Fully illustrated and one of the best buys in magic. This is stuff you will use and do and as Harlan Tarbell said, some of the best magic in his course.

One of the best tricks that Grant created was Ghost...

If you have seen some of the effects in his early catalogs and wondered how they were done, then this PDF may satisfy your curiosity. A wealth of information that is hard to find elsewhere.

Rope, Chain and Box Escapes

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Rope, Chain and Box Escapes by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is one of the best books ever written on escapes and escape magic, bar none. Grant wrote this treatise for the average magician wanting to add an escape to his act, not the professional escape artist. The nice thing is that none of these escapes involve having to pick locks or for the performer to have muscular strength such as required in many escape feats.

All of these are easy to do, and none are life threatening. You can do all of these with no fear of killing yourself! With the information in this treatise an enterprising magician could put together an entire escape act full of...

Challenge Cards Across

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Challenge Cards Across by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is by far one of the best methods ever conceived for the classic cards across trick. It is also one of U. F. Grant's best card effects for stage. The method is completely different from Zen's Fifteen Card trick in that no duplicate cards are used.

One regular deck is used and only two unprepared personal size envelopes. There are no stacks of any kind. Finally, there is no palming of cards as in other methods. The method is very easy to do and a feature for stage that is a real fooler. Just one regular deck and two envelopes, along with a pencil to sign the cards will give you a real...

The New York City Lecture

Ulysses Frederick Grant

The New York City Lecture by Ulysses Frederick GrantU. F. Grant seldom did live lectures. One of the few he did was for the Magician's Guild of American in New York City on Oct. 13, 1952. These are the original lecture notes. These notes are very rare and almost impossible to find as they were sold only at the lecture and not distributed through magic dealers.

Here are the contents; none require any difficult sleights and all are easy to do.

Bombay Rope Cut: A cut and restored rope that involves tying no knots.

Zella Ring on Rope: A spectator ties the ends of a length of rope together. The performer then passes a borrowed ring onto...

Snip-Snip Want Ad Test

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Snip-Snip Want Ad Test by Ulysses Frederick GrantThe Snip-Snip Want Ad Test is the a sensational, simplified, baffling and easy to present effect. No switching, palming, sleight of hand or advance preparation is needed. Guard the secret well. I have seen professional mentalists pay $100 and more for secrets far inferior to this. Your audience will not believe it. Neither would you if you were not in on the secret.

Effect: A single column of want ads cut from any newspaper is freely shown. It is not gimmicked or prepared in any way. Holding the strip vertically, you start to snip ads from the bottom of the strip, one at a time, until a spectator...

Zella: copper and silver coin routine

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Zella: copper and silver coin routine by Ulysses Frederick GrantIt is impossible to adequately describe in words the greatness of the Zella Copper and Silver routine. Nowhere will you find a routine so easy and pleasurable to present, yet so profound in its effect upon those watching it. The routine has been thoroughly tested from every practical and theoretical standpoint and has been performed with unparalleled results before men experienced in coin magic.

No double-sided or other trick coins used. No gimmicks. Only regular coins used. Easy to learn as there are no difficult sleights.

First Effect: Three coins are on a table; two half dollars and...

Grant's Brilliant Card Magic

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Grant's Brilliant Card Magic by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is a fascinating book on card magic. It shows U. F. Grant at his best. (Robert J. Smith mentioned on the cover was one of U.F. Grant's pseudonyms.) These are some of the most ingenious methods for card tricks you will find. Many are magician foolers. All are very easy to do, but pack a wallop. Most of them require no sleight of any kind!

You get 50 tricks in all. Some of these items can be used as show platform tricks such where a glass of ink changes to glass of clear water with a selected card inside using no chemicals. Another effect is that three people just name cards at random....

Marvelous Devil Illusion

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

Marvelous Devil Illusion by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is called the Marvelous Devil Illusion because you will marvel at its cleverness. Imagine producing the Devil, surrounded by a committee from the audiences, under test conditions. This is an almost forgotten U. F. Grant idea that has been revised and updated for today's magicians by Devin Knight.

Here is the original Grant ad copy:

Several people from the audience are invited to step up and surround a cloth cabinet. It is quite empty! While they are still watching the cabinet closely, from all sides, a person dressed up in a devil costume appears inside of same. He takes a bow, steps...

Sacred Altar Lights

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Sacred Altar Lights by Ulysses Frederick GrantYou show three candle holders on a table, each with a candle in it. A sheet of clear glass is placed around them and the candles are visibly lighted. The center one is referred to as the sacred light. Anything passed through the flame will not burn hands or other objects. Even flash paper will not be set off by the flame!

The sacred light is removed from the alter and caused to vanish. It immediately reappears back in the holder lighted! Finally, the candle vanishes completely leaving no trace behind.

A trick with visible impact that you will fool yourself with.

Sleight of Hand Rope Trick

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Sleight of Hand Rope Trick by Ulysses Frederick GrantThis is the first official release U.F. Grant made in 1928. This came before his 45 Tricks, and was an amazing rope trick well before its time that introduced the magic world to the genius of Grant. Very rare and seldom seen.

EFFECT: A length of rope is displayed measuring about 3 feet long. This can be passed for examination before and after the trick. The rope is taken and the ends tied together. The performer states the rope can be cut and restored in any section of the loop. He proceeds to cut the rope 3 or 4 inches from the knot and then restoring it there. It is again cut; this time in the center...

Rising, Dancing and Floating Silk

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Rising, Dancing and Floating Silk by Ulysses Frederick GrantDo not confuse this with Blackstone's Dancing Handkerchief. This method does not have to be done on stage and requires no assistants like the Blackstone version does.

Borrow a handkerchief and a hat or use your own. Tie a knot into the handkerchief and toss into the empty hat. In a few seconds, the handkerchief peeks out of the hat and jumps into your hands. Place the handkerchief on the floor and it stands straight up by itself and starts dancing around. It jumps into your hands and then floats between your outstretched hands. The magician can even walk into the audience with the handkerchief floating...

The carpet and the spectator revolve in mid-air at the same time. The spectators see all sides. A small platform on casters is rolled to any spot on the floor desired. Resting on the platform is a beautifully decorated two-fold screen. It supports a platform with gold fringe representing a carpet. The carpet seat is tufted and padded for comfort, and it shows up well at a distance.

How To Produce A Rabbit

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

How To Produce A Rabbit by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick GrantNo one can really call himself a magician, unless he can pull a rabbit out of a hat. It is the most expected trick in magic today. Even though few magicians do it; you always have kids asking, "Are you going to pull a rabbit out of a hat?"

Potential clients calling about birthday parties, often ask if you can pull a rabbit out of a hat. Some magician's try to pacify the mothers or children using a mirror box production of a rabbit. Good try, but it is not the same. People want to see a rabbit produced from an empty top hat, or even a borrowed hat. If you can do this; you have a big advantage...

Massive Fire Bowl Production

Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick Grant

Massive Fire Bowl Production by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick GrantAvailable again after being off the market for over 50 years! One of the great effects in magic has been a production of a bowl of fire; but, most of the methods were not sure-fire and were too mechanical or worked with acid and other dangerous methods. Plus the fact that they were always small flat bowls that had to be carried under the magician's coat, etc.

Here is a sure fire non-mechanical or chemical method where the performer does not have to carry a body load and produces a large massive bowl of fire from beneath an unprepared foulard with no secret pockets.

The perfect sensational...

UF Grant's Lost Card Secrets by Devin Knight & Ulysses Frederick GrantThis new e-book contains five of U. F. Grant's forgotten and almost lost card miracles.

It is very rare and almost impossible to find today. Devin has taken the four effects and updated them and expanded the directions. These are real magician foolers!
