Harapan Ong

Spellcheck on the Tally-Ho Plot by Harapan OngWhat if I told you that there was an amazing card trick hidden in plain sight ... printed on the box of your favourite deck of cards? Henry Christ's "Tally-Ho!" is a unique and fun spelling trick like no other. By spelling the words found on a Tally-Ho card box in an order determined by the spectator, you are able to produce the four Nines - matching the "No. 9" printed on the box.

In this ebook, I will be teaching Roy Walton's variation of "Tally-Ho!" (permission granted by Roy Walton), along with my presentation for the trick. I will then present to you methods to perform this simple and self-working...

Sultan Orazaly

M.O.Balance by Sultan OrazalyBalancing objects is part of visual magic. Many magicians try to make it clean and beautiful. M.O.Balance is a new approach to the effect of balance. Three very visual and simple effects.

Hand Balance: You make a card stand flat on your hand.

Angle Balance: The corner of a card balances on your index finger.

Balancing Cigarette: A very crazy and brain-breaking trick. You balance a card, and also balance a cigarette on the card.

After the trick, all items are handed out for examination.

Hans Trixer

Conjuring Trix and Jardine Ellis Ring Effex by Hans TrixerFrom the Foreword by Peter Warlock:
It is with a great deal of pleasure that I write this foreword to my friend Hans Trixer's book on 'ring' magic, for in it the reader is presented with a number of most effective tricks, all of which are free from the suggestion of special apparatus. Every effect shows a naturalness of handling that comes from the mind of a natural magician.

Hans, through his many contributions to magazines is already well known to magicians in this and other countries. His penchant is for the smaller type of magic, and amongst the group in Holland which devotes much of its time to...

Ian Baxter

Three Extras by Ian BaxterFrancis Carlyle and Faucett Ross get coverage in this latest manuscript from Ian Baxter. In a tribute to both of these giants from the past, Baxter examines Carlyle's 'The Card That Finds Itself' with a new and novel approach, while the Ross classic 'Twice Turned' gets a dusting off that adds value-plus to this popular effect from the Vernon Chronicles. The third entry is Baxter's technique for the Top Palm, unbelievably fast, straightforward and appreciably easier than most other methods in print.

Brick Tilley

Mr. Bones: Miracle Thought of Card by Brick TilleyA card is merely thought of by a spectator. The performer writes a prediction on a card and pockets it. The spectator is asked to remove his thought of card from the deck. When the performer's prediction is read aloud by another spectator it is found to match the spectator's card. At no time does the spectator state or reveal his card until after the spectator's thought of card has been read aloud.

This is based on a Harold Taylor idea. The clever method will put a big smile on your face.

Thomas Carlyl

Count Cagliostro by Thomas CarlylThis is Thomas Carlyle's long essay on Count Cagliostro, published in 1833 in Fraser's Magazine. He is examining the hero and his shadows - what was false about Cagliostro. Cagliostro was a Sicilian mountebank, whose lasting notoriety was a bit part in the Diamond Necklace Affair that rocked pre-Revolutionary France, and whose most enduring work was the confession extracted by the Roman Inquisition, a tome published in 1792, three years previous to Cagliostro's demise in an Inquisitional cell.

1st edition 1833, 61 pages; PDF 42 pages.
