Abbott Magic Catalog #22

Recil Bordner
Abbott Magic Catalog #22 by Recil Bordner

The catalog gives a date of 1976, but that is the same date as #21, which means they probably forgot to change it. Most likely this catalog was published in the early 1980s. The latest date mentioned anywhere in the catalog is 1981. My best guess therefore is that this catalog was released in 1981 or 1982.

1st edition 198?, 448 pages.

This lesson in telepathic experiments makes mind reading an understandable and practical thing. A method of reading one's thoughts that you can learn and apply.

A Scotch Brand of Magic

Joseph White
A Scotch Brand of Magic by Joseph White

Magic enabled by double sided tape.

This ebook will show you how to place a coin at the tips of your fingers and, in full view of the audience, cause that coin to vanish in an instant! All this without the use of a pull. You may shake your hands vigorously to prove that nothing is contained therein. You then proceed to produce coin after coin from mid-air - you will produce a number of coins, not just one. With this new method of palming it is possible for the magician to work in short sleeves (or, for that matter, with no sleeves at all). You can show both hands convincingly empty and at...

Staggered

Staggered by Eddie Joseph

Eddie Joseph writes:

The generous reception meted out to my previous effort Premonition has tempted me to release yet another of my EXCLUSIVE secrets. In presenting this apparent card miracle, I have one regret and that, I am not able to demonstrate it in person before revealing the secret. If I were standing behind a magic counter and you came in as a customer and saw this effect, the chances are that you would not pass it by. This is one effect which will NOT ONLY DUMBFOUND the layman but will INTRIGUE you as well, dear brother ... at least the first few times you try it; EVEN AFTER LEARNING THE SECRET. ...

Super-Psychic Mental Effects

Howard P. Albright
Super-Psychic Mental Effects by Howard P. Albright

From the introduction:

There is a universal demand for good, practical effects in Mental Magic, not only from professional Mentalists, whose very livelihood depends upon the exhibition of Super-Normal Phenomena, but from that vast army of amateurs, who find this type of presentation most effective in small, social gatherings. Because of the very intimate nature of mental problems, they are particularly well suited for impromptu occasions. Under such circumstances, they appear to be most convincingly genuine, and accompanied by a little dramatic by-play, they create a profound impression upon...

This Is Magic

Nicely illustrated routines of a full-time performer.

From the introduction:

"Why don’t you write a book on Magic?" I have been asked this question hundreds of times in the past several years, and my answer has been that I am too busy, or that I wanted to be the only Magician who did not write a Magic Book!

However, I have taken the time from my hundreds of shows en route each season to conduct a monthly column in TOPS Magazine and to write many articles and tricks for the Sphinx, Genii and Linking Ring. So when I was requested to compile all the tricks I had formerly written for these magazines...

This is an effect in the Mental Sphere. You can carry it in your pocket for CLOSE-UP work at a party, around the bar, or for publicity purposes for newspaper men. It's something that I have used for years to good advantage. If desired, the idea can be used for CLUB or STAGE presentations as well. It also is suitable as a demonstration of Thought Transference between performer and his assistant, the medium being sent out of the room or she may be at the receiving end of a telephone many miles away.
