Eddie Joseph

A Magician Goes To Dinner by Eddie JosephFrom the introduction:
The tricks described here are for "extempore" showing. They have been specially developed for entertaining fellow diners, within watching distance, around a banquet or dinner table.

To perform "extempore" is not the same as giving a show on the stage. In one's regular program everything is premeditated. Performing to a group around the table is different. To begin with, the tricks must be of the type that could be worked without much ado. They must be short and spontaneous. They must be worked in an "off-hand" manner. Finally, not only in character but in appearance...

Wilbur Kattner

You're On! by Wilbur KattnerHere are not one, but two, fully routined magic acts that are commercial and different. They work equally well for the one- or two-person show. Each of the routines is a complete unit, with effects that lead up to a definite climax. Patter, music cues, stage movements and rehearsal suggestions are included. You also get standalone effects, new wrinkles for established effects, and additional patter and bits of business to add to your show.

PARTIAL CONTENTS:

THE RESTLESS COLORS (Orville Meyer) is a routine on par with "Out Of This World." It is guaranteed to leave magicians and laymen in a daze. It...

Karrell Fox

My Latest Book by Karrell FoxFrom the Foreword by Bill Wells:
In 1945 (at the age of 17), Karrell became one of the first magicians to ever appear at a trade show. This first effort led to what is perhaps the most successful trade show/magic association in the history of magic with Karrell being the first magician to appear at a national automobile show. There followed 22 years of appearances on these shows.

This early association also led to Karrell being the first magician to appear in shopping malls and the production of the highly successful "Magic World of Ford." The three million dollar production, with six...

J. G. Thompson Jr.

The Miracle Makers by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the back cover by Karl Fulves:
The Thompson name having been associated with quality magic for the past fifty years, the reader of this new book will need no recommendation as to the value of the material. It contains all of the Thompson trademarks; new ideas, subtle approaches, smoothly routined magic, impeccably researched articles, inscrutable titles, excellent patter and presentation suggestions. All of this is well known and indeed synonymous with the Thompson name. There is another facet to the material in this book which may not be readily apparent however, and it is this which I'd like...

Will Goldston

The Young Conjurer Part 2 by Will GoldstonIt is a bit odd to teach productions of lighted cigarettes in a book for young conjurers, but perhaps those were the days when smoking was considered good for you.

From the introduction:

That brings me to another point. Don't be afraid of a mistake, and don't allow yourself to be discouraged by one. The best men make mistakes sometimes. Still, it is as well to guard against mistakes by rehearsals. Take one trick at a time and go over it many times until you know it thoroughly. Then - and not till then - go on to another trick. In this way you will soon build up quite a little store of...

Will Goldston

The Young Conjurer Part 1 by Will GoldstonFrom the introduction:
Before the young conjurer sets out to try and entertain his friends he should first devote a little time every day to practice. I always believe in a little practice every day. Every trick that one is going to present should be rehearsed over and over again until one is practically tired of it. When the conjurer knows a trick in that way he finds, when he is presenting it to an audience, that he is by no means tired of it, because the trick goes so well that he is bound to like it and it probably becomes one of his favourite tricks.

Will Goldston

Will Goldston's Easy Road to Magic: in seven lessons by Will GoldstonFrom the introduction:
The ideal way of learning magic is, it almost goes without saying, to obtain lessons from a magician who is not only a skilful performer but who has also the gift of teaching. The number of such magicians is small. Skilful performers there are in plenty; but the gift of teaching is a rare one. Many a man knows his subject thoroughly, yet cannot impart his knowledge to others.

This ideal way is therefore a difficult one. The learner has first to find an efficient instructor. He may be able to do so if he lives in or near one of the great cities. But if not he will...

John Northern Hilliard

Leaves From My Notebook by John Northern HilliardThis is a compilation of Hilliard's contributions to Floyd Thayer's magazine The Magical Bulletin.
A few sporadic contributions to magical journals here and abroad followed The Art of Magic. The most important of these stray papers was the first account, in The Sphinx, of a thought-reading card trick of my own invention that has since enjoyed considerable popularity. I refer to the experiment commonly known as "The Telephone Trick." No one was more surprised than myself at the immediate and widespread popularity of this trick. That its success was not ephemeral, I judge from the fact that Mr. Thayer still keeps it in stock, and that many writers,...

More Tricks and Puzzles by Will GoldstonFrom the introduction:
I will introduce this book by a little story told to me by a certain well-known conjurer. It concerns an experience of his while on tour in the north. By some mischance his luggage, including all the elaborate apparatus used by him in his tricks and illusions, went astray on the railway. He telegraphed for it up and down the line, but without result. For the time being it was hopelessly lost. What was to be done? The position was as awkward as it well could be. The bills announcing his performance had been out several days. Most of the reserved seats had already been...
