Twenty Magical Novelties by Edward Bagshawe

In this work, we find for the first time the popular Out-to-lunch principle (see for example Anagramation by Jim Krenz) being published.

From the introduction:

The better one becomes acquainted with magic, the more one realizes that the word "novelty" must be used with care. That is, if one wishes to be strictly veracious. Nevertheless, I believe the reader will find that the various offerings in this book possess some element of newness - either in the effects themselves or the methods outlined.

It will be noted that I have not included items that are only accessories or suggestions (with which another book...

Edward Bagshawe
Proudlock's Routine with Thimbles by Edward Bagshawe

From the foreword by Will Goldston:

I admire a magician whose zeal for his art is always at fever heat. I admire a magician who sets out to discover some of the hidden treasures of magic and does not count the cost, in time and labour, that he spends on the task. Lastly, I admire the magician who, when he has found some of those hidden treasures, is willing and anxious to share them with his fellow magicians.

The reader will now understand why I have a profound admiration for the magician whose originations appear in this book. One glance at it will convince anyone who understands magic that it is...

More Magical Mysteries by Edward Bagshawe

From the introduction:

For this reason I have endeavoured only to include effects of a practical nature, and ideas in which simplicity is the keynote. Anything in the nature of "conjuring for conjurers" has been rigorously excluded, and wherever an idea is made use of that is not my own, full credit has been given to the originator.

  • "Obstructing The Line"

Exclusive Problems in Magic by Edward Bagshawe

From the introduction:

This book has been primarily written for the Drawing-Room and Concert Artist who will, I trust, find the material offered for his perusal, sufficiently away from the "beaten track" to be of practical value. The majority of the effects described have been thoroughly "tried out" - and therefore they can be relied upon to "work." I have endeavoured to set forth a selection of original ideas that are not only (to the best of my belief) new in effect, but, to some extent, in method also - thus checkmaking the spectator who knows just a little too much.

The Mind Reader by Edward Bagshawe

Print and Perform.

One of the advantages of the following effect lies in its absurd simplicity of operation. Quite a change from some of the "mentally selected" card effects you may have run across.

Briefly, the effect can be stated as follows. A sealed envelope is first given into the keeping of a member of the audience. Two printed slips of paper (ready to print for you), each bearing the names of cards, are given to a second spectator, who is asked to examine them and note that the names of all the fifty-two cards have been listed upon them. The spectator mentally selects one of the...

Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks by Edward Bagshawe

Now you, too, can present this award-winning silk routine in your show.

Here is a beautiful routine using two sets of three silk scarves that magically knot and unknot themselves "in sympathy" with each other ... even from across the stage. Best of all, you can do this with your own silks, as they contain no hidden pockets, sewn-together pairs, or similar fekes.

Edward Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks are a joy to behold, no less to the magician than to the uninitiated beholder. That it was a feature of Proudlock's act for 15 years is a testament as to its beauty and strength. Anyone who...

The Le Walke Mysteries by Edward Bagshawe

Here's an amazing ebook of new effects and improvements to magic and mentalism classics, from the fertile mind of a master craftsman. Long off the market, this updated and expanded edition brings to life 16 miracles from the workshop of George Le Walke, the genius and craftsman who created effects for several well-known magic dealers. These miracles of magic and thought-reading will get your mind to thinking of ways to add one or more of them to your own act.

While some of the described effects do require workshop skills, they can be constructed in most anyone's home shop. If you're not mechanically...
