Mussey stresses the proper presentation of magic stunts and tricks, rather than the mere mechanics. He shows you how to progress from comparatively simpler tricks to those which require diligent study and practice.

In the majority of the tricks described, little or no equipment...

Robert Parrish

For Magicians Only by Robert ParrishThis was a very successful book on magic when it originally appeared in 1944. Even the sophisticated New Yorker put at the top of its list of recommended books for servicemen.
A complete repertory of tricks that can be performed without elaborate equipment.

The only book on magic that tells exactly how to keep the audience from seeing the mechanics of performance.

Here's the book for every one who ever dreamed of pulling rabbits out of a hat or sawing a woman in two (and putting her back together again). The author, who has had a long experience in platform magic and two previous books...

Robert Parrish

New Ways To Mystify by Robert ParrishNew Ways To Mystify carries on its prestidigitation in the vein of For Magicians Only. Again Mr. Parrish has presented thirty "tricks" that can be performed without elaborate equipment, and with no more skill than the average person can muster. It's all in practice and in knowing how to distract the audience, Mr. Parrish says, and he demonstrates in such a simple manner that anyone, young or old, can master these feats of magic.

The general plan of the ebook follows that of the earlier volume, and Mr. Parrish again writes in his witty, urbane fashion. Dozens of simple diagrams, as well as clever chapter head...

D. Angelo Ferri

Don Alan Tribute by D. Angelo FerriDennis Barlotta's Tribute to Don Alan includes a re-working of three routines; The Chop Cup, The Benson Bowl, and 'Bag Stabbed' a card stab.

Dennis writes:

I am a very big Don Alan fan. This manuscript represents my investigation into applying Slydini's principles to these great Don Alan presentations. My Chop Cup routine follows the Don Alan Routine in terms of sequence of events but I accomplish those events using Slydini's system of movement, his Revolve Vanish, and his Timing Patterns. The timing patterns are what accomplish the two final loads of the Chop Cup.

In the Benson Bowl,...

Stephen Tucker

Silver Where? by Stephen TuckerAn incredible transposition of a fork and a spoon.

Showing a fork and a spoon you mix them, undercover of your hands, then ask someone to guess which is the fork. They guess and are either correct or wrong. You clearly place the spoon in your breast pocket, with the handle protruding. Suddenly, the fork in your hand becomes the spoon! The spoon in your breast pocket turns out to be... the fork!

No magnets or sleights! Can be performed without a table (ideal for strolling or at cluttered tables) and everything can be examined at the end. This was developed to link with Stephen's Mind-Power routine. ...

D. Angelo Ferri

Bar Magic by D. Angelo FerriDennis writes:
I worked as a "Magic Bartender" for several years, tricks have to be simple, entertaining, and ideally employ common objects. Occasionally I'd sit at a customers table which gave me the opportunity to perform 'The Glass Through the Table' and my 'Hat Load'. Slydini taught me the 'Glass Trick'. He uses sound to control the perception of the spectator, The Hat Load begins with a coin trick based upon Don Alan's Hat Load but my mechanics for loading the hat are based upon Slydini's System of movement. My Copper and Silver Transposition employs a slightly modified version of John...

Lewis Ganson

Two in the Hand and One in the Pocket Teach-In by Lewis GansonRoutines using the extra object principle.

Three small objects are shown, two are placed into the left hand and the third one into a pocket. On opening the left hand, not two but THREE objects are seen. This is repeated a few times, the effect becoming more bewildering as the routine proceeds. In some versions, the objects eventually vanish or are transformed into something different.

From this basic theme, a whole range of tricks has been evolved, the objects employed being almost anything of such a size that can be concealed in the hands.

This was part of the famous Ganson Teach-In...
