Henry Bursill
Hand Shadows by Henry Bursill

At some time or other most of us have amused ourselves by casting shadows on the wall with our hands. Hand shadows are an ever-popular diversion, especially with the young. The number and variety of objects that it is possible for you to form, simply by moving your hands and fingers around in different positions, is practically limitless, subject only to your patience and ingenuity.

But figuring out the exact finger positioning is not a simple matter; some shapes are quite difficult to obtain. The author of this delightful picture book of hand shadows spent long hours working out the figures...

Giuseppe Pinetti
Physical Amusements and Diverting Experiments by Giuseppe Pinetti

This is a wonderful and extremely rare book. If you could find this book at all somewhere to purchase, you would need to put down around $5000. But it is not just its rarity which is so fascinating, it is its contents. This is a great magic book. Many outstanding tricks are taught. I found new routines and new principles I haven't seen and read anywhere else - and I consider myself as fairly well read in magic. I love this book. It is highly recommended.

It describes how to change the color of a rose. How to shoot a bird and bring it back to life. How to drown a fly for 24 hours and bring...

Jack Carpenter
Steve Mayhew's Angels May Shuffle But The Devil Still Deals by Jack Carpenter

Steve Mayhew has come up, with what must be the most clever application of the Gilbreath principle, or strictly speaking a principle closely related to Gilbreath's. He achieves with this idea extremely strong poker deal effects. If you are only remotely interested in poker deals, mathematical principles, or in particular the Gilbreath principle, you must read this ebook. This ebook is a reprint of his notes with the same title plus the effect "Freedom" from his lecture notes.

Shigeo Futagawa
Introduction to Coin Magic by Shigeo Futagawa

I have studied personally for almost two years with Shigeo Futagawa in Yokohama, Japan. He is without a doubt one of the top coin workers living today. A humble man who would have all the right in the world to be not quite so humble. Introduction to Coin Magic is a wonderful book. It is not just for the beginning coin student but for anybody who would like to brush up on some basic moves and learn several new outstanding routines.

Another interesting feature of this book is the several short bios of famous magicians inserted throughout the book. You will find people like Slydini, Han Ping Chien,...

Louis Nikola
Magical Masterpieces by Louis Nikola

The most famous invention of Nikola is his card system, which is described in The Nikola Card System and in an abbreviated version in Encyclopedia of Card Tricks. Cards are not the only area Nikola excelled in.

From the inside cover: Magical Masterpieces is no mere fanciful title. It is an apt description of a selection from the accumulated repertoire of a practical magician whose outstanding characteristic is the painstaking perfection and stamp of individuality of all his productions. It is safe to say that if a new book of magic provides only one workable and suitable addition to the reader's store it is a sound investment. The magician...

Jon Racherbaumer
Sticks and Stones: a leaflet for the left hand by Jon Racherbaumer

Racherbaumer, a man of words - sometimes strong words, sometimes exotic words, sometimes provocative words, sometimes strange words - but always thoughtful and worth reading, wrote a two year column in The Greater Son of the Bat Jr. journal (S.O.B.jr.). All 24 installments of this column are collected here. You will find a lot of Marlo-vian talk, good tricks and interesting articles. I was not a magician in the late 70s, so I cannot say how it was back then in the 'good old times', but reading Sticks and Stones allowed me to imagine how - I am sure - it must have been.

Cardeceits by Peter Duffie

Twenty fine card tricks.

1st edition, 2003.

A Pain in the Ace: You push a selected card into the middle of the deck - it rises to the top. You push it back into the middle and flip over the top card. Unfortunately it's not the selection. It's an Ace. You - or a spectator - give the deck a fair cut to bury the face up Ace in the middle. Upon spreading the deck all four Aces are now face up together in the middle - but there's one face down card caught in the middle. This proves to be the awkward selection.

The ROLEX Gang: You remove the four Aces then place a random card between them....

Untold by Peter Duffie

Fifteen clever tricks with cards.

1st edition, 2002.

SEVEN DOWN: Seven Down was inspired by Ed Marlo's "Magic Seven."

DRAW POKER: This trick came about as a direct result of a conversation with Roy Walton, who had a card problem which he quickly solved and published in OPUS.

FALLING: The following routine is based on Roy Walton's superb "Cascade". Here several Jumbo cards are caused to mutate in a bizarre and visual manner. This was originally called "The Mutant Hand," but I changed the title for this ebook in view of the recently marketed Cascade variation "Mutanz" to avoid confusion with names.

THREESIGHT: A simple, but effective, prediction using the Gilbreath Principle.

IN PLACE: This simple trick is an ideal one to perform for anyone at a moment's notice. It uses what is often referred to as the Automatic Placement.

CENTRAL RESERVATIONS: This is essentially a small packet version of Paul Curry's "Power of Thought," and a possible miracle single card prediction.

THOSE ENIGMATIC ROYALS: A simple idea based on the Vernon 'Card Puzzle' and inspired by Peter Kane's 'Royal Families' from his booklet A Further Card Session, plus Roy Walton's "Split Up" from The Complete Walton, Vol.1.

A SENSE OF FREEDOM: This is based on a number prediction by Shigeo Futagawa using four pieces of cardboard (See "Stunumbers" in Karl Fulves' Self-Working Number Magic, Dover). The only weak point was that the prediction couldn't be written until an advanced stage in the proceedings. The following effect uses playing cards and there is no need to worry about the prediction because...

PSYCHOGRAPHY: Before you begin, you remove a card from the deck and, without showing its face, you place it between a spectator's hands. This, you state, is a sprit photograph that has yet to be taken. You now allow another spectator a free choice of any card in the deck and have him sign his name across the face. This card is lost into the middle of the deck which you then give to a spectator. You now remove two cards from your pocket - these two cards have completely blank faces - these, you state, are the photographic...

Twenty-one card tricks from the inventive Scotsman.

BACKLOG: You spread the deck with the faces upwards and invite a spectator to select any card - free choice. This is left face up on the table. You give him the deck and he now spells the name of his card - first the suit, then the value. This produces two random cards. The values of these cards are added - they might be a 3 and a 10 = 13. When the spectator turns his card over it has the number 13 boldly written on the back!

THE FLEEING ACES: The four Aces travel from one half of the deck to the other and capture a previously selected card.

FOUR TO THE FORE: A spelling effect based on an Henry Christ premise. Two single Bottom Deals are required but they happen on the off-beat and a fine technique is not necessary.
