Verrall Wass
Magically Yours by Verrall Wass

Practical effects with cards, flowers and silks. Here is Verrall Wass in his own words about the motivation of this book:

Modern magicians are not magi, yet some wizards wish to divide conjuring into innumerable religions and subdivide each religion into as many sects. The doing of tricks for them becomes a ritual. To one, he who does not use Professor Shuffle's (the "Professor" is still with us) double-trouble riffle is a heretic. To another, disciple of The Great Marmagic (the "Greats" are still with us too), he who does not employ Marmagic's boil-and-bubble pass, aptly named because the...

Julien J. Proskauer & Walter Gibson
The New Conjurors' Magazine: all volumes by Julien J. Proskauer & Walter Gibson

First advertised as The New Conjurors' Magazine and dropped the word "New" after Vol 1, No. 1. Houdini's brother, Hardeen, helped get this magazine launched, but he passed away shortly after the magazine started. It was selected as the official organ for the Magician's Guild of America. It eventually changed hands to Ed Dart in 1947 (Volume 4, #10), with Robert Lund as editor (Gibson still continued as a columnist).

Genii magazine absorbed The Conjurors' Magazine and from November, 1949 until 1974 as Genii became Genii, The Conjurors' Magazine. It was eventually changed to Genii The International Conjurors'...

David Seebach
So You Want To Be An Illusionist by David Seebach

If you are planning to add an illusion to your show this is required reading.

Is this ebook for me? Here is David in his own words:

Have you created a show that clients pay you to present on a regular basis and does that show not include any of the big, spectacular acts that we refer to as illusions? Do you want to learn more about these famous mysteries to decide if adding one or more of them to your act is going to be a good decision?

In the mid 1960's I was a high school student who dutifully carried a #16 Abbott's Magic Co. catalog with my class text books and I studied through...

Burling Hull
Sealed Mysteries by Burling Hull

This is one of the earliest publications which has Burling Hull's Svengali deck described. Hull called it originally the "Cards Mysterious". Even in this early publication he complains about unauthorized copies being sold by unscrupulous dealers. A hundred years later and nothing has changed. We still have magic retailers and manufacturers producing and selling illegal and unauthorized copies of magic products.

One thing has changed though over the last 100 years - the use of Bicycle cards. Hull writes:

One of the objections to the trick is that the design of the backs are that of Bicycle...

Dr. Bill Cushman
Telephone Bill by Dr. Bill Cushman

Take a bit of “Miraskill,” a twist each of Mirabill and “A View To A Skill” and mix with “Minimal Miraskill.” Between Stewart James, Herb Zarrow, John Bannon and Dr. Bill, you will have one of the strongest effects possible to perform over the telephone.

The good doctor had been seeking a way to perform Mirabill over the phone ever since its release but it seemed impossible. Until now.

Telephone Bill looks and sounds different than any of the above but utilizes James’s original brilliant principle and is every bit as squeaky-clean as Mirabill. Live and in person it is mind bending. But over the phone? Your audience...

A method in mentalism so bold you will never believe it works – unless you have the balls!

So what is Balls?

Basically it is a no-budget version of the famous Master Prediction System, that everybody loves but only the pros are able to afford:

A sealed cardboard box is seen standing in full view or hanging from a stand – it can also be given to an audience member at the beginning of the show. Random people call out random things: dates, the amount of money in their pocket, holiday destinations – whatever you (or they) like.

The box is retrieved and opened by a spectator. Inside...

The performer asks a spectator to think of any card, no psychological forces are used, no deck is used, it is a totally free selection, and the spectator never writes anything down. Once the spectator has made up his mind, the performer takes the spectator's hand and makes him see the card he thought of down on his palm; after that the performer reveals the card the spectator was...
