Psychic Magic

Ormond McGill
Psychic Magic by Ormond McGill

This ebook is an edited and slightly abridged version of material which originally appeared as "Psychic Magic" in six volumes. From the preface by Percy Abbott:

In 1937, Ormond McGill wrote a group of articles for Tops under the title of "the psychic circle." the continued respect which this series has enjoyed through the years speaks volumes for both the vitality of Mr. McGill's writing and for magicians' interest in psychic magic. And yet, such interest is but natural, for the whole art of the conjurer is based on a love of performing the impossible and knowing the unknowable, and who more than magicians...

The New Premonition by Eddie Joseph

From the introduction:

No matter how deep you delve into Magical history, you will not encounter another card effect similar to my "PREMONITION". When first introduced to fellow magicians, "PREMONITION" was greeted enthusiastically. Many knowledgeable members in the profession proclaimed its merits unstintedly. Others soon learnt of its singular entertainment potentiality and included it as a feature number in their acts. My files are full of laudable comments gathered from various sources. Two of these in particular I wish to record here. The first from that veritable human encylopedia of...
