Frederick F. Furman

Domino Deceptions by Frederick F. FurmanLong out of print, this classic of close-up magic is back with a new look and even more tricks.

Stephen Ablett

The Parasol Act by Stephen AblettThe Parasol Act was the opening routine in my children's show between 2008 and 2013. It was also featured in my competition act and adult cabaret shows. The routines taught in this download video was perfected primarily for children. It requires no jacket, no restrictive holders, can be performed wearing a short-sleeve shirt, and at the end of the act without fear of the parasols opening early. The only restriction is that your shirt must be tucked out at the back.

For the main routine; I produce five single parasols, and a final triple giant parasol after manipulating cocktail umbrellas....

Jon Racherbaumer

Fifth-Business Monkey Business by Jon Racherbaumer

Eight select bits of rascality from Harry the Hat.

From the Introduction:

When Harry Anderson lived in New Orleans, we regularly discussed tricks, scams, and what Harry liked to call "throwaways that are keepers." These are tricks that symbolically serve the same purpose as Mardi Gras beads and doubloons tossed from floats during carnival season.

The following 8 things in this booklet are stunts and tricks Harry performed in his inimitable, fast-and-loose way when he held court in barrooms, poolrooms, or at his night club called Oswald's. In the right time and place they are worth knowing...

Mirage by Paul A. Lelekis(Two videos included which explain everything.)

MIRAGE - a brand new concept in card magic - and particularly in the realm of paradoxes - a magician-fooler!

Two paper-clipped, red-backed cards are laid on the table at the onset ... your magician buddies are watching closely. A card from a blue-backed deck is selected and signed by the spectator, then lost back into the deck. The two red-backed, paper-clipped cards are openly picked up and one card is taken into each hand. The hands...

Charles Waller

Happy Magic Part 1 by Charles WallerFrom the Introduction:
Here, as always, I have assembled a varied lot of material in the hope that all tastes will be satisfied. It is all original; or as much so as conjuring creations usually are. I am particular in this regard, for I am almost morbidly sensitive to any charge of "piracy." This is strange when one considers that mine is the honour of having introduced the Jolly Roger as a conjuring property.

Chris van Bern & Alex De Vega

A Whirlwind of Wizardry by Chris van Bern & Alex De VegaFrom the Introduction:
Remember that the average act, which can be acquired by anyone without much practice, is seen on the Halls so often that one becomes absolutely bored with it. They are known in the profession as “Penny a bunch Acts.” Now with a little application you can stand apart from this bunch, and be a specialist, so this book is offered in the sincere hope that you will be able to glean an act from it, and we tell you to do so in all confidence, as the material is original, and has seldom, if ever, been used in public.

Selected Secrets by Alex De VegaFrom the Foreword:
In selecting these Secrets, I have endeavoured to interest the Fraternity at large. Whether you are a manipulator, impromptu or spectacular worker I trust you will find herein some secret that will add to your reputation as a magician.

The secrets are chosen from over 300 which I classified when writing The Whirlwind of Wizardry and while many are not complete tricks or effects in themselves they are just what adds that little extra touch of smartness to an act, or that little effect to fill up a break.

Oswald Rae

Wizardry with Watches by Oswald RaeFrom the foreword:
Watches have always played a certain part in Magic, but the watch was usually a borrowed one. The excellent "prop" watches now on the market, manufactured of course exclusively for conjuring purposes, open up almost a new era in watch magic.

Having acquired some of these, I endeavoured to work out some effects therewith, and thinking that some of my ideas may be of service to my fellow magicians, I have put them into print. With the exception of those described under "Some Suggestions" all the effects have been actually worked, and the various stands described are easily...

To those amateurs and to my numerous professional friends who delight in new books, I send forth "Magic and its Professors," trusting that it will prove of interest to them.

In the other volume, Card Tricks With and Without Apparatus, will be found the most recent additions which have been made to escamotage des cartes. When both these volumes have been digested, students in legerdemain are advised to make a study of the more advanced conjuring...

Greer Maréchal, Jr.

Magic for the Millions by Greer Maréchal, Jr.This is an excellent magic book that deserves to be known more widely. Bruce Elliott wrote in the foreword:
This introduction to a noble and ancient kind of amusement will lead you as a primer should, from the easy to the more difficult. It stops short of the really difficult, again as a primer should. It helps you on the road to becoming, for better or worse, a magician.

For the better? Yes, for a way to enjoy yourself, to get a kick out of performing something that is out of the ordinary. For the worse? If this book serves its purpose, you will have set your faltering feet on the rocky...

This magic treatise has stood the test of time. It has become a standard magic reference work. The First Edition is one of the most sought after magic books and is now available in its Second Edition, which incorporates additions and corrections from Kaplan's own notes, as well as adds more than 25% new and...

Ken de Courcy

After Dinner Technique by Ken de CourcyFrom the preface:
This book first appeared in 1953 in serial form in Goodliffe's ABRACADABRA. At the time it was the first treatise to be published on the subject and many people were kind enough to say it helped them overcome the difficulties always found in after-dinner shows.

All the information it contained was learned by experience as it was a field in which I specialised. And, although it was written nearly thirty years ago, almost nothing has changed; which is surprising when you consider the sweeping changes in other spheres of entertainment.

Part 2 deals with an abundance of remarkable examples of patter, adaptable...

Vick Lawston

House of a Thousand Mysteries by Vick Lawston
"It is a great, great read, especially your recounting of how Mr. Lawstone substituted workshop sheets for the actual apparatus." - Christopher Kenworthey
Many of you remember Vick Lawston's House of a Thousand Mysteries catalog. Most baby boomers that became magicians got their start from his catalog. They remember his slogan, "When you think of tricks, remember Vick's."

Inside his catalog he included three free tricks that you could try on your friends. These were decent tricks and were some of the first tricks I ever did. They have been re-written and included in this release. His...

Wilbur Kattner

Off the Beaten Path by Wilbur KattnerLooking for something a little bit different in magic? Here are 14 card and general magic ideas with the accent on novelty and practicability. Wilbur Kattner, the mastermind behind such ingenious effects as The Shattering Flask and The Prolix Spirit Writes, has filled the pages of this ebook with conjuring that deserves a place in your program.

Contains Orville Meyer's Restless Colors, and the torn corner effect, CLIMAX!, which won the Caryl Fleming Gold Medal Award for the author. Also included is a complete explanation of how to make Daub ala Meyer, a marketed product for card magicians, which has since...

Carl Martell

The Modern Manipulator by Carl MartellThis, originally written in 1910, juggling and magic book is (for the most part) still very relevant. Besides the insights you will gain about juggling and magic in the late 1800s, you will also learn about forgotten routines that you can use to enrich your repertoire with and that would still play very well in your act today. You will get the original script as written by Carl Martell. It is an exciting read for jugglers, variety performers; and sleight of hand, close-up, and stage magicians alike. You will read about the workings behind some long-forgotten vaudeville juggling stunts, magic...

Brick Tilley

Vanishing Doll by Brick TilleyAlso known as "Ne Plus Ultra" and "Bonus Genus", this was a favorite pocket trick at the turn of the century. Even Houdini was known to have fashioned a crude version of this out of a scrap of wood. Modern day toy companies create small dolls that make handcrafted ones a thing of the past. We located an ideal version at a local 99¢ store, it's a small figurine of a cherub playing on a flute.

EFFECT: A small doll is covered with a cloth. The cloth has a hole in the center, out of it protrudes the doll's head. The head is allowed to drop into the folds of the cloth. Immediately the cloth is shaken...

Arthur Leroy

Outline of Mystery by Arthur LeroyHere are a devil's dozen effects, moves and miracles for the semi-professional that, for the most part, don't rely on external gimmicks. It's one of those rare books that, the more you read it, the more you'll appreciate it. Not written for the faint of heart. If you're after bold, professional magic, this is the book for you. (And yes, the title is a pun on H. G. Well's Outline of History. Kudos if you caught that.)

You'll find effects for close-up, platform and stage. The details are provided as if you were a trusted confidante of the author.

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

The Leaf by Ralf (Fairmagic) RudolphMagic is mostly performed with man-made products - cards, coins, silks, ropes, ... Why not perform magic with items nature provides? This is even more powerful, because there is inherently no suspicion of gimmicked objects. Ralf has created a stunning miracle that is easy to perform during a stroll in the woods, or during a garden party, or other places where plants are in reach. All you need is access to leaves growing on a tree or a shrub and a pen to sign a leaf.

Effect: You and your spectator collect a couple of leaves. The spectator tears one in half, and signs it. Miraculously the torn...

Tommy Windsor

Street Faker Act by Tommy WindsorHere's a great change of pace routine for the magician -- an act that parodies the medicine pitchman. Audiences love it ... and you will, too.

The author includes his exact routine, including every bit of the hilarious patter and bits of business that made Tommy's act a laugh riot on stages from coast to coast. Not burlesque, but a clean comedy "pitch" act that can be performed in churches and schools as well as lodges and clubs. Full of laughs, but not a "blue" gag in the lot. A riot of fun but contains nothing to offend anyone.

You sell and demonstrate "Dr. Presto's Magical Medicines...

Trevor Lewis

Orbital by Trevor LewisYou place a prediction in view. A spectator names any number between 1 and 50. You show a deck of cards and (without cutting or any moves) you count to that number. That card matches the prediction! Easy to do. No rough and smooth. [Note: These are merely the instructions that came with the prepared deck. You will not receive any cards. But it is easy to make up your own from a couple of duplicate cards.]

Anything You Say by Len Belcher

An unusual magical murder game. All the necessary cards are enclosed in the PDF and you can immediately print them and perform the trick.

An unusual and exciting effect for your mental act or magic show. It has much audience participation. Each of three spectators, invited up, plays a part in the enactment of an 'Orrible Murder, one being the body, one the witness and one the murderer. Each "chooses a weapon" - printed on large cards. (But you could use real articles: rope, dagger, gun, poison bottle, hammer). Cards or weapons are hidden. While this is afoot you have your back turned or...

It starts with three stunning effects that appear to be as near to real mindreading as you can get - Almost Real Mindreading Feats. Devin explains little known principles which will enable you to reveal repeatedly which hand a spectator is merely thinking of, to remove the card a spectator simply looked at in a fan, and to name a mentally chosen card...
