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...

(Note that this is a compilation of items that were released earlier. All of them are available individually on Lybrary.com. See links throughout the product description.)

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...

Improved Tri-Epic Deluxe - this is a clever three or even four way newspaper prediction effect reminiscent of David Copperfield's Graffiti Wall, but more portable and totally suitable for a one man act.

Psychic Money Sense - designed for an intimate close up show, this experiment apparently shows that a spectator has an excellent psychic sense as he achieves an impossible outcome using three...

Stanley Collins

Deceptive Conceptions in Magic by Stanley CollinsFrom the Foreword:
Written entirely during my service in the Army and the major part of it whilst under shellfire at Ypres and on the Somme, this book was ready for the press save the sketches, early in 1919.

Anticipating almost immediate demobilisation, I determined to post to my home the manuscript that had been such a labour of love to me, with some small magical apparatus that had accompanied me during the campaign. I am still awaiting the arrival of that parcel.

Considerably lightened by the possession of an exceptional memory, my task of re-writing is now finished and I confidently...

Alexander de Cova

California Lecture 2006 by Alexander de CovaFrom the introduction:
You will find that most of my mterial is suitable for the stand-up performer. This is due to the fact that in Europe there aren't too many opportunities to work restaurants, bars and other close-up situations. We have to deal with small stand-up shows, birthday parties, wedding parties, smaller theatres and cabarets, and the like. Naturally, if you want to survive as a performer, you will have to adapt to this situation and develop suitable material. Above all, the material must be direct and to the point, because the European audiences generally don't have too much...

Gregg Webb

Webb Mania by Gregg WebbFrom the Foreword:
Magic is changing and a lot of the reason for this is that people's attention spans are shorter because of the pace of life today and more distractions.

We don't have the luxury of people dying for entertainment. There is too much entertainment and to compete, we have to get to the point quicker.

If you look at my magic a certain way, it is a direct result of chipping away at long tricks trying to distill them down.

The format follows Gregg's established style of illustrations and hand-lettered text.

Al Baker

Al Baker's Second Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
In presenting my "second" book to the magical fraternity I have kept in mind the old saw, "Brevity is the soul, not only of wit, but applies to many magical tricks".

I have tried to make the text brief and, by giving plenty of illustrations, cut down on too much solid type. I give no patter as I feel that every entertainer should be himself and develop a style of his own.

Fred Keating rose to stardom. "The Bird Cage", "Sympathetic Silks" and "Card in the Cigarette" were marvellous in his hands; others copied, but Keating's name still lives. "Be a magician, not...

Al Baker's Book by Al BakerFrom the introduction:
Showing a trick is comparatively easy to putting it clearly in print, and I want to thank Anneman for his judicious use of the blue pencil, finding spots where I could write less and tell more, and in general, being a marvelous deleter and paraphraser.

To John Northern Hilliard, whom I consider the greatest writer on Magic as an Art, I want to extend my sincere thanks for the encouragement that caused me to start and finally finish my maiden effort, to wit: Al Baker's Book.

Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster

Some More Exquisite Conjuring by Friedrich W. Conradi-HorsterFrom the Foreword:
When publishing my first book in the English language, Exquisite Conjuring, I was led by the thoughts, that perhaps, after having edited over 30 books about Magic in German, it may be an interesting experiment to see, what the English speaking fraternity would have to say, if I would publish a book in the English language and if the praise, I received from all sides as an author of books on Magic since these last 20 years and more, would really warrant such a new venture!

Well, I must say, that my expectations have not only been realised, but they have in fact been surpassed by far in...

Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster

Exquisite Conjuring by Friedrich W. Conradi-HorsterConradi was the largest manufacturer of magic apparatus in Germany in the early 20th century. He wrote and published several major magic books and his magazine Zauberspiegel (Magic Mirror) predates Mahatma, the first American magic magazine. We should not forget that around 1900 Germany was dominating the magic market. Some of the largest magic retailers in the US, such as Roterberg, built their entire business on importing goods from various German manufacturers, such as Conrad-Horster, and then reselling them in the US. Roterberg's most successful book New Era Card Tricks was little more than a translation of effects taken from various...

Dave Arch

The Bonnie and Clyde Melodrama by Dave ArchTransform the classic close-up version of The Thieves and Sheep to an audience-pleasing platform melodrama utilizing those notorious bank robbers of years gone by Bonnie and Clyde. While the audience supplies the sound effects, you can be the narrator (the author's choice) or another member of the audience could read the story as a volunteer from the audience stands behind the table and acts out the story with two paper sacks and some coins (up to silver dollar size for visibility).

The colorful placemats setting on the table in front of your volunteer gives him/her additional prompts - supplementing...

Music control for the solo entertainer

This ebook describes how any solo entertainer can easily build and set up their own music control system. Many entertainers are looking for an easy set up to be their own sound technician. The system can be operated by the push of a button and the button can even be in the performers pocket.

I tried a lot of hardware and software and I think that I found a good working solution. This system is easy to build, reliable, cheaper than some other sound systems and cheaper as hiring a sound technician. The ebook covers all aspects to setup such a system...

Dave Arch

Magic Tricks For The Visually Impaired Part 1 by Dave ArchEver wished you could gain some media coverage for your magic shows while making a substantial contribution to others' lives? Consider teaching magic tricks to the blind. No doubt there's an organization in your area that already serves as a hub for services to the visually impaired. The very concept of blind people and magic catches most people (and the media) off-guard. Yet it's very workable as Dave Arch's experience shows. When you consider the tricks you already know, there are three categories of tricks that work for the visually impaired. There are tricks that the blind can perform for...

Loring Campbell

Magic That Is Magic by Loring CampbellFrom the Author's Note:
I do not claim everything in the pages following to be original, but I do say that every trick and routine in this book has been used and tried by me and that everything here is audience tested and will go over with an audience. Perhaps the thousands of Magicians all over North America who have seen my shows in the past 22 years will recall having seen me perform many of these effects.

This is not a book of card tricks or close-up pocket effects, but a collection of tricks and routines for the performing Magician who gives shows and entertains audiences. I believe...

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...
