Franklin M. Chapman
Chap's Scrapbook by Franklin M. Chapman

This is the favorite 'book' of Gaetan Bloom. This monthly magic journal only ran for two years (24 issues) but it is filled with wonderful ideas largely on close-up magic. Although most of the effects described are from Frank Chapman, there are a few contributions from people like Charlie Miller, Nate Leipzig, etc.

To give you a sense of what Frank had in mind, here an excerpt from the first issue:

Magic is my hobby ... It has been my hobby for over twenty-five years ... I am not a professional magician ... This may be questioned because I occasionally entertain for a fee ... I do this for two reasons ... To keep...

Thomas Harrington
The Magic of Memory by Thomas Harrington

A number of effects in magic, and in life, succeed because one person is doing something mentally that other people assume is beyond human capacity. This ebook explores one such phenomenon--memory for numbers, items and events. Over the course of several thousand years a procession of mnemonics pioneers have successively augmented human power to deal with numbers by evolving a collection of clever ways to think more effectively about them. These methods, largely unknown to the general population, have the potential for greatly expanding human mental capacity. For instance, the average human’s...

Harlan Tarbell
How to Chalk Talk by Harlan Tarbell

The chalk talk is an almost forgotten entertainment type. The only time I have seen a chalk talk was on a Saturday Night Live show. The idea of the chalk talk is to combine story telling with drawing usually in a funny way. Today one can do this with a whiteboard. You don't need to be a skilled artist to do a chalk talk.

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.

Howard Thurston
The Thurston Magic Box of Candy by Howard Thurston

This is a little gem for collectors. Thurston produced a series of 50 tricks which were distributed in candy boxes. These are all tricks for beginners with largely common objects. They are very well described in a clear format (ghostwritten by Walter B. Gibson). First the title, then a block of illustrations followed by the trick description. That was followed by the sections "What You Need", "How To Do It" and "What To Say". Even a very young magician can follow these instructions and learn some neat tricks:

  1. A Broken Match Restored.
  2. The Fly-Away Coin.
  3. The Magic Knot.
  4. Matches That Walk. ...

Clown Noses by Aaron Isaacs

This is a sponge ball routine with a very pleasant theme. The effect is:

Magician asks a female spectator: "Have you ever seen a clown?" As she answers, the magician removes a red sponge ball from his pocket. "You have probably noticed clowns always wear these silly little noses on their faces. What you may not realize is if you pull on one just right...it splits in two." The magician pulls at the one ball with both hands and produces a second one at his fingertips. "Now, clown noses are very lonely beings, when you place them into a dark place, like your hand," the magician sets one ball...
