The Last Word on Cups and Balls by Eddie Joseph

From 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...

David Devlin
Die-Lemma by David Devlin

David Devlin has come up with a very whimsical and clever effect that is simple to do and a blast to perform. This effect uses dice that are printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company. These are not normal dice. These dice have card suits and card values printed on them. They are called Poker Dice. These are readily available any place that games are sold and are very inexpensive. This is a great trick for use in walk around and restaurant performing.

Here is the effect: The performer brings out a deck and casually gives it a few cuts. A spectator gives the deck a cut but does not complete...

Working Progress: tricks I do for money by John Holt

Working Progress is a short ebook of six tricks that I use when working for real, live human beings. They're all practical tricks that work in pretty much any performing environment you could possibly find yourself.

Inside you'll find a cool transposition that you'll love to perform, a chop cup routine which includes TWO fabulous endings that get round the awkward "putting the lemons back into your pocket" reset moment, a great use for the Phil deck that you can use for parlour performances or to open a set at a house party, plus there's a routine for the card to wallet that doesn't foreshadow...

Cups and Balls Magic by Thomas (Tom) Osborne

Tom Osborne writes:

Cups and balls have been giving pleasure, as a magic trick, to generations of spectators. It is still regarded as one of the most outstanding of all magic effects. My gratitude to Dr. Henry Ridgeley Evans and to John Mulholland for writing the story of the cups and balls, so that all may appreciate the history of this classic of magic. Thanks to Bill Hanna for the illustrations which do so much to make the book come alive.

All the basic ball moves are described in detail using clear illustrations. A section of routines is described that will get you started on your way to devising your own methods and plots....

Defective Cups and Balls by Paul A. Lelekis

Paul presents his multi-staged routine, Defective Cups & Balls which he has been performing for almost two decades!

Even Houdini once said, "You can't consider yourself a magician unless you can perform the Cups & Balls!"

Defective Cups & Balls has Paul's complete, hilarious patter and each stage of this routine becomes more and more "eye-popping" as the story goes on. Best, yet, this routine ends with not just a double - but a TRIPLE revelation that will have everyone, including the kids, completely FREAKED OUT! It just seems IMPOSSIBLE!

Aldo Colombini
Mo Howarth's Growing Under Glass by Aldo Colombini

It's a sort of Cups and Balls routine, yet it is done with only one cup which is actually a glass. It's a Two In The Hand And One In The Pocket routine, using the glass instead of the hand. The glass has a paper cover yet things happen without cover and under cover. It is one of those brilliantly unusual effects that you will use most of the time. A glass covered with a piece of paper and three sponge balls are shown. One after the other the balls disappear and reappear under the glass. If you like, one appears BETWEEN the glass and the cover. Two balls are placed under the glass and one in...
