Catalogs

Catalogs constitute a very important record of history. It allows one to date tricks and effects, research the lineage of inventions and get a feeling of days gone by. Catalogs also inspire the imagination and exercise your magic knowledge. Reading an effect description in a catalog involuntarily makes you think about how this effect might be achieved. You start to think about methods and principles with which you could accomplish the same trick. And if you can't come up with a good answer you want to buy the trick. Wonderful!

Nelson Enterprises Catalog 6

Robert A. Nelson

Nelson Enterprises Catalog 6 by Robert A. NelsonRobert Nelson and his brother Larry ("Alla Rageh") started the Nelson Enterprises in 1921. Their first "catalogs" were printed on thin, onion-skin paper. By 1927, their catalog boasted over a hundred effects and books, catering almost exclusively to the mental fraternity.
