The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy

David Phelps Abbott

The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy by David Phelps AbbottJoseffy, Josef P. Freud, was a magician from Vienna, Austria. He came to the US when he was 19 years old, and initially worked as manufacturer of props and apparatus for a magic shop in Chicago. Eventually he designed and built his own unexplainable creations, several of which are described in this ebook. However, only the effects are given, no methods are described. Abbott briefly outlines old methods for similar effects, but does not provide the methods Joseffy uses. This book is therefore a promotional item rather than a traditional magic book. It includes many staged photos of Joseffy presenting...

A Magician's Swan Song

Will Goldston

A Magician's Swan Song by Will GoldstonAn autobiographical history of magic, profusely illustrated with diagrams of magic tricks and photographs of Goldston's career.

From the foreword by J. C. Cannell:

The exposures he makes range from the most spectacular and elaborate illusions to the smallest pocket trick. His book, indeed, is the alpha and omega of magic. He conceals nothing, hides no secrets.

The careful researches which I had to make in order to tell the public exactly how Houdini achieved his escapes and performed illusions which seemed like miracles, led me to think that I had exhausted all the resources of magic. But,...

Tricks for the Few

Lance Charles

Tricks for the Few by Lance CharlesHere's a terrific book containing ten tricks, using cards, a magic wand, rope, and other items associated with the magic arts. Most of the effects require no special apparatus. What little is needed can easily be constructed. We think modern performers will really enjoy the card rise, where the action takes place with a borrowed deck! Also of interest will be "Through the Five-Spot," which is an impossible solid-through-solid effect where a five of spades visibly melts through the center of the magician's wand.

We've especially had fun performing the ball bearing mental test, which is a great...
