Eddie Joseph
Greater Card Tricks by Eddie Joseph

This was Eddie Joseph's first card publication. As such, coming out in 1942, it represented already at that time 20 years of performing. It's unbalanced contents shows very much that it is not simply a book of card magic, but a summary of Joseph himself as a card man and his particular biases and interests. A chapter on his particular way of doing the fundamental sleights he depended upon and an entire chapter on the intelligent use of daub.

Thomas (Tom) Osborne
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....

Harry Lorayne
Deck-Sterity by Harry Lorayne

This is mostly an ebook on card magic but it also has a few effects with coins, dollar bills and cigarettes. By far the best routine in the ebook is the "Ten Card Poker Deal". It is a hugely entertaining, dynamic routine in which ten cards culled from the deck are dealt into two poker hands in a multitude of ways, but somehow, the magician's hand always ends up winning. The effect is virtually self-working and Harry's routining turns it into a real reputation maker.

From the Foreword:

Of course, I can't make an entertainer out of you. I can include effects and routines in my books with...

Devin Knight
Fandemonium by Devin Knight

Important: These are not plans for making this yourself. These are the detailed directions plus supplements that came with this trick when it was on the market for $395.00 in the early 2000s. This PDF is designed for collectors who may have the prop, but no directions, magic historians, and those simply curious as to how this trick was done. The trick still shows up on eBay, magic flea markets and auctions. If you need the directions, then here they are.

EFFECT: Magician shows a small electric fan roughly 10" x 10". The fan is turned on and shown to be a normal working fan. Magician then...

Devin Knight
The Hollow Bulb Effect by Devin Knight

These are instructions that came with Devin Knight's Hollow Bulb effect. They do not tell you how to make a hollow bulb. This PDF is for those who may have a hollow bulb and not know what to do with it. This information is for collectors, magic historians and magician's curious as to how the effects work.

You can do any of these effects if you have a hollow light bulb. Many magicians have these lying around in drawers and have no idea how to use them. Here are some of the effects you can do with a hollow bulb:

EFFECT 1:

Turn off any ungimmicked lamp and unscrew the bulb. You can even...

Ronald Levy & Devin Knight
The Knight Billet by Ronald Levy & Devin Knight

A break through in billets that you need to know if you do billet effects.

Richard Osterlind is correct when he says that many mentalists stay away from Annemann's billet work because it seems hard to do. For most magicians and mentalists, it is difficult to do. They struggle with opening the Annemann billet in their pockets; they fumble and quickly give up. The basic idea is to switch a billet for a blank one and secretly open it in your pocket or behind a clipboard or book. This can be difficult with one hand, especially if you are using an Annemann billet.

That has all changed thanks to Ron Levy,...

Gerard Zitta
Auld Times Modern Times by Gerard Zitta

This is a useful effect for those who don't like tricks with smart phones, computers, etc. or if you perform for an audience who doesn't like them either. But it works very well also for computer addicts.

Effect:

You place a prediction in a glass or in full view. You write a list of activities (For instance: Reading, Play Music, Work, etc.). The participant chooses one of them (There is absolutely no force).

And now the "crescendo":

  • You show your prediction and it was right (this one is an optional gag, or pretext for getting your audience involved).
  • On the pen there was another...

George Brunel
Fun With Magic by George Brunel

Amusing Experiments in Physics, Chemistry and Geometry

The title is a little bit misleading, because there are no real magic tricks in this book, at least not the kind that a magician would assume. It is essentially a book of 'kitchen' science experiments. Some of these experiments can of course be presented like a magic trick. But the majority of them are simply interesting or surprising science experiments which can be done at home with a little bit of preparation.

From the preface:

The sole aim of this little book, aside from its purposes as a source of profitable pastime, is to...

Who Done It? by Jack Shepherd

A magical mystery in one act.

From the introduction:

It will be obvious after reading this manuscript that for the actual magical methods it would be simple to substitute other methods and other apparatus and still keep the basic idea. This is for the reader to decide, but we would suggest that if this is done, the apparatus used should be of a simple nature and not elaborate conjuring properties, as these would divert the attention of the audience from the story and routine to the magical mechanics, and it is the story that counts. The only way to get something really new is by a new...
