Card Magic of the Mind

Eddie Joseph
Card Magic of the Mind by Eddie Joseph

Fourteen mind magic routines with a deck of cards.

From the introduction:

Just because one has acquired extreme dexterity in the manipulation department it does not stand to reason that CARD MAGIC OF THE MIND can be easily presented as a bunch of tricks. The Magician appears in the role of a Mentalist when doing CARD MAGIC OF THE MIND. He is supposed to be working with his MIND and not his HANDS. Any attempt at speed or undue display of manual dexterity will ruin the whole thing. One should remember to keep it that way.

Come Good Spirits

Eddie Joseph
Come Good Spirits by Eddie Joseph

From Chapter 1:

The much controversial subject of spiritual interaction has been engaging the attention of the majority of thinking people since time immemorial. We have many supporters of Spiritualism in our midst today, and a far greater number of those who accept the cult with some degree of incredulity. Whether one is for or against the subject, he is certainly not occupying a "terra firma" position for preaching his doctrine. People in either group will merely be groping in the dark, trying to reach an unknown region-a region which no living mother's son (or daughter) can know anything...

The Art of Body Loading and Productions

Eddie Joseph
The Art of Body Loading and Productions by Eddie Joseph

From the introduction:

After all is said and done, of one thing we can be certain. When a Magician begins to pull out certain incongruous articles from under his volunteer's clothings he will be creating a natural form of comedy.

I know these things because I have been practicing them for the past 25 years or so. You, too, will share my views after your first public trial.

I know many Magicians who would like to incorporate this type of work into their program. They have refrained so far not because they "turn their noses" at such things but because they lack the requisite knowledge....
