Magic in the Modern Manner by Orville Wayne Meyer

Customer rank: +1

This is a work most will not be familiar with. Many will dismiss it with 'another old magic book'. But those in the know have carefully studied it and hold it dear as one of the most valuable books for a working professional magician.

It is the original and the only one of four places where Annemann's bullet catch is described, because it was Orville Meyer who supplied Annemann with the method. All the three other places where this is described are out of print and hard to impossible to find.

And now this lost Orville Meyer gem has been made even more valuable by extensive annotations and a new introduction by pro-magician and historian Ben Robinson. Ben Robinson was in close contact with Orville Meyer. Ben has performed the bullet catch himself and has written the seminal work on bullet catching Twelve Have Died which is long out of print. He is therefore the perfect person to read between the lines and interpret this important work for us.

Not since Twelve Have Died has Ben Robinson been so explicit on the major work of bullet catching. If you want to know how Annemann did it, which you can see below, then this ebook is your sure answer. Since Twelve Have Died has been out of print since 1990, this is your best bet at this carefully guarded information.

Meyer's bullet catch is but one hidden treasure in this ebook. There is an extensive section on the Chinese Linking Rings and several other classics such as Cups and Balls and the Egg Bag are carefully covered. You will find novel routines like Think! Ink! or the Bathing Girl Illusion next to a section of mental mysteries.

1st edition 1949; original 184 pages; PDF 165 pages.

One of the Lost Classics - we have to thank Chris for saving this! Meyer is all but forgotten, but his work is literally immortal. This includes what is probably the ULTIMATE bullet catch -- chilling and terrifying in all aspects, for performer as well as audience and shooter.

I could go through this book, throw a dart, and hit a classic. This man, who helped make the Jinx's and Annemann's reputation, deserves to be well-known to any mentalist or wannabe mentalist.
