Chandu & George Armstrong

Chandu's Psychoanalysis by Chandu & George ArmstrongThe original ad:

Chandu & George Armstrong

Chandu's Psychoanalysis (French) by Chandu & George ArmstrongC’est avec une grande fierté que The Mystery Store vous propose pour la première fois en français l’une des toutes premières, si ce n’est LA première, routine de mentalisme psychologique. Créée par Chandu, rédigée par George Armstrong, publiée en 1950, et… à portée de mains (ou de clics…) !

Elle a traversée les années jusqu’à vous, ne nécessitera qu’une très légère mise à jour (notamment en ce qui concerne le script d’introduction de la routine), est facile à faire et donnera l’impression à vos spectateurs que vous analysez réellement leurs réponses...

Tricks of the Trade by George ArmstrongIf you are familiar with Magician's DIY Tips and Tricks then Tricks of the Trade is written with a very similar idea in mind just 60 years prior. It describes a multitude of DIY tips and gimmicks and improvements for the magician.

It describes things like:

  • How to turn a sock into a billiard ball holder.
  • The two ingredients to make fake beer.
  • How to clean cards.
  • How to make a candle shell.
  • How to make coin holders from pins and safety pins.
  • How to make colored flash paper.
  • etc.
It closes with a section on stage make-up.

Premonition: an amazing mental card routine by George Armstrong[Eddie Joseph and George Armstrong both published this effect in 1949 under the same name: Premonition. The effects are identical and the methods are also pretty much identical except some minor details. Since George Armstrong describes his inspiration and when and where he developed it, while Eddie Joseph does not, I believe George Armstrong to be the inventor of this method. George Armstrong's inspiration was an effect from Greater Magic by Bill McCaffrey. But already Hofzinser has a similar routine Domination of Thought from his Card Conjuring.

A spectator names a card. He is asked to take a pack of cards from the table, remove them...

George Munro & George Johnson & George Armstrong

The Magic Wand (1910 - 1957) by George Munro & George Johnson & George ArmstrongMartin Breese purchased the copyright to the Magic Wand many years ago. He intended to issue material from the magazine in book form and was little to know, at the time, of the advent of digital publishing and ebooks.

The Magic Wand was first published in September 1910 and continued for 256 issues until December of 1957. It began as a monthly magazine and after a decade it was published quarterly. It was edited by George Munro who was succeeded by George Armstrong. It is rare and very hard to find a complete run. The most valuable issues are those containing the serial publication of The Annals of Conjuring. ...
