[Books (printed)]

We are known for our ebooks. However, through various deals and acquisitions we have gotten hold of a good amount of printed books which we are offering here in this category until our stock is exhausted.

These are not second hand items. They are new, sometimes still shrink wrapped, ready to be retailed. The pricing largely reflects the amount of books we have left as well as the exclusivity and quality of the contents in them. I am sure you will find a number of incredible deals here.

We also do print some of our ebooks and those will not so quickly vanish from our catalog. But it might very well be the case that at some point we decide to discontinue the printed version and only offer the digital one. Don't wait too long if you want the printed version.

Eric Mason & Barrie Richardson
A Boon For All Seasons by Eric Mason & Barrie Richardson

From the introduction by Eric Mason:

I regret that I do not have the scholarship or time to trace the history of secret marking devices, but I would assume that they have existed for a long time. Maybe the odd advocate or so has altered the moment of his time to advantage and left, as with others, his mark on the world. Such a secret device has long been a powerful tool used by many to misdirect others, sometimes cruelly. I wonder if Nostradamus used it? He thought of most things and predicted practically everything as well as anyone! The Swami Gimmick has taken on many forms and Boon for...

Al Mann
Al Baker's Manuscript by Al Mann

Ted Annemann's writing in Jinx No. 19 alludes to an obscure Al Baker manuscript that Annemann had seen when he was 17 years of age, at which time the manuscript was already old. The manuscript contained some of the first writings by a well experienced and well informed magician. It was called Al Baker’s Mental Effects. This was a remarkable collection of ideas and fabulous routines aimed especially at the mentalist/magician. Although it featured Al Baker’s Billet Reading Extraordinary, each effect in the book was a feature item.

Hugh Miller
Al Koran Professional Presentations by Hugh Miller

Al Koran Professional Presentations is a magical classic and was first published in 1967 by Harry Stanley at the Unique Magic Studio. The original publication was marred by poor photographic reproduction so this new edition from Martin Breese has illustrations by Paul Griffin based on the original photographs. Hugh Miller has contributed a fascinating and lengthy introduction which explains a great deal about the background of this book which is a 'must' for every performer's library. Each effect is a stunner and the original Koran Medallion and many other now classic effects, are explained in detail.

Hugh Miller
Al Koran's Legacy by Hugh Miller

This is a completely new, revised, expanded and updated edition.

The ebook contains most of the original material but virtually everything has been re-written and benefits from the skill of an expert editor. There is a host of additional material written by Lewis Ganson and previously published in the Routined Manipulation series published by Harry Stanley.

Along with Graham Jolley, Martin Breese has always been a follower of Al Koran and his amazing material. Al Koran’s name appeared on almost every page of the Gen. And thanks to Harry Stanley his material has been preserved for future generations to study and use.

Amazing Unfaked Book Test by Val Andrews
"A brilliant and versatile principle that has stood the test of time." Ian Rowland
This is an unbelievable book test. Just imagine taking a modern book; perhaps a best seller in the bookshops right now. The book is genuine and is completely unfaked in any way. You can even ask a member of the audience or perhaps someone on a radio show that you will be talking to, to bring along a copy of the Da Vinci Code or whatever you choose to use. Or you could do this impromptu with any book as long as you have a couple of minutes private time with the book.

A Connoisseur
Annals of Gaming by A Connoisseur

The intentionally unassuming grey cover, designed to match the dull-sounding title, suggests a dry emotionless record of events is likely held within. However, this humble exterior belies the valuable secrets hidden within its pages. Annals of Gaming was an article series published over four years, between 1772 and 1775; its sole intention was to expose the sharpers, hustlers, and cheats, by detailing their methods of defrauding the unwary. Now, for the first time, every article in the original series has been retyped in full and published in a single volume of over 200 pages. This work covers over...

Artifice, Ruse & Erdnase by Hurt McDermott

"Frankly, I find your approach the most careful and cautious of all that have been published." - Bart Whaley

"Hurt's book is very good writing on a subject I care about. I enjoyed it tremendously and learned a great deal in the process. I think you will, too." - Richard Hatch

The search for one who may not want to be found.

In 1902 under the pseudonym S.W. Erdnase and the title Artifice, Ruse and Subterfuge at the Card Table a book on sleight-of-hand with cards was published. This book became the bible for card magicians. To this date it remains arguably the single most important book on sleight-of-hand card magic. Some of the most respected masters of card magic,...

Big Ring on String by L. C. Collier

A parlor sized ring with a stage sized routine.

This is a compact ring and string routine which uses some of the most visual moves one can do with these props. For many years I have performed a very similar routine. I used a red cotton ribbon instead of the standard white rope, because a ribbon lies flat on the ring and is wider than a rope allowing for some sequences a stronger illusion.

Terri Rogers
Boromian Link by Terri Rogers

This booklet details Terri Rogers' Boromian Link an incredible linking card effect based on Paul Harris' Immaculate Connection. The Harris original is a great impromptu effect but if you are not working impromptu and can use your own cards then you'll find Terri Rogers' method even better. The linking effect looks excellent and in fact fools those familiar with the Harris original. The effect can be performed with any size cards and looks quite spectacular if done with Jumbo cards.

Break Through by Al Mann

From the forward by Al Mann: "The true art of mentalism is not the illusion of the stage that enchants the eye but the illusion created in the mind that enchants the thought. The mentalist's greatest gimmick is hidden in the inner recesses of his mind and therefore invisible and unexposable. This manuscript expounds the illusive, seldom exploited and little known branch of magic where the spectator unknowingly executes the 'move' that creates the miracle to the full credit of the magician! The "Headline Prediction" is indeed a headline getter for the magician and mentalist. It is a haunting...

The show was honed year after year until each effect was near perfect and here in this beautifully produced book, Charles at last reveals his closely guarded secrets. Every single effect included can be performed exactly as described. Only a handful of props are required for you to emulate the mysteries...

This book could fetch hundreds of dollars on ebay. It was very hard to find a copy. The book was shrouded in mystery. The few that had a copy didn't tell what it was. Many who didn't have one, wanted it badly. Now the wait is over...

Martin Breese reprinted this one of a kind book. And the one of a kind Martin Breese let me reproduce it as ebook.

Given the recent popularity of psychological methods in mentalism, the Book of Oopses was decades ahead of its time. Most effects use psychological quirks and biases to predict your entirely 'free' choice. It is eerily disturbing how easily we...

Lawrence Frame
Close-up Framework by Lawrence Frame

A small book that's big on entertainment. Clean, novel methods are used to produce effects that are clear and uncluttered. Taking as an example the first effect in the book, 'Spellbound Climax': you show a 2p coin and magically transform it into a 10p. After repeating this a couple of times you are surprised to find that the coin has changed into a button! Looking down, you discover that the coin is attached to your jacket where the button should be.

To paraphrase Gordon Bruce's introduction, these aren't just tricks but lessons in presentation.

This was Peter Duffie's first solo book published on the heels of his hugely successful Alternative Card Magic and Contemporary Card Magic.

It includes mostly card routines with a couple of coin routines sprinkled in for good measure. The effects are not difficult to do and can be classified as intermediate. Some routines require palms, half passes and riffle passes.

Of Gifts and Talents by Al Mann

The knowledge in this manuscript allows the mentalist to very convincingly demonstrate the ability to read sealed messages and posses the art of thought-transference! The spectator is told to take his business card out and write out a question and turn the card writing-side down. The card is then sealed in a envelope which the spectator signs and holds. After the mentalist divines the thought, the envelope is opened and the card is taken out for a handwriting analysis and then both the card and the envelope are returned to the spectator! Contents:
