The New Premonition

Eddie Joseph

The New Premonition by Eddie JosephFrom 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...

The Last Word on Cups and Balls

Eddie Joseph

The Last Word on Cups and Balls by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
Every piece of information - idea - suggestion and routine has been independently created, developed, exploited and tested by the author some time or other. The reader is therefore assured, he is not getting any "second-hand" material in consequence.

The colossal amount of material crammed between these covers, will provide the progressive manipulator with a wealth of valuable assets.

The book has been divided into three parts. The first supplies detailed explanation for nearly forty new moves and passes. The second is kept apart for the creation of novel effects...

15 Exciting Minutes with a Borrowed Deck

Eddie Joseph

15 Exciting Minutes with a Borrowed Deck by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
The routine comprises five different effects, each able to stand out on its own merit. When combined, you will confuse the sharpest mind, the logical reason being that you appear to be doing the same thing over and over again, but you vary your secret procedure with each repetition.

All sleights have been eliminated and even if one had not done a single card trick before, he will still be able to bewilder and earn the reputation of a highly-skilled card worker. The tricks are so designed that at no stage do you appear to be taking any active part — your spectators...

Staggered

Eddie Joseph

Staggered by Eddie JosephEddie 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...

Thought Interception

Eddie Joseph

Thought Interception by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
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. Many methods are explained here.

Card Magic of the Mind

Eddie Joseph

Card Magic of the Mind by Eddie JosephFourteen 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 JosephFrom 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...

Seven complete routines are given but you will be able to develop many more once you understand the versatile secret of Bombay. This miracle effect has stood the test of actual performance for both laymen and magicians. In case you wonder, the name derives from the place it was conceived.

The Art of Body Loading and Productions

Eddie Joseph

The Art of Body Loading and Productions by Eddie JosephFrom 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....
