Will Goldston

Goldston's Magical Quarterly (1934 - 1940) by Will GoldstonThis bundle includes all issues including the two page supplement from volume 5 which is missing in most files. This magazine was cut short due to the start of WWII. It is an eclectic collection of - at that time - completely new and innovative tricks, apparatus, and effects. It also covers the magic scene with reports, reviews and other newsworthy contributions. Will Goldston was very well connected and could draw contributions from the best magicians world-wide.
