No sleights. Automatic working. No rough and smooth. Instant reset. No angles.

If you have Gaffus Maximus, you'll need this addendum. If you don't have Gaffus Maximus, then this is your chance to sample the quality...

Edward Marlo & Wesley James
MINT 1963 Annotated by Edward Marlo & Wesley James

After releasing M.I.N.T III, IV, V, and VI, Wesley has set about to complete the full run of Marlo In New Tops material with extensive annotations and supplemental bonus material. This is the first installment of the years from 1963 through 1979. 1964 - 68 are already well underway. Beyond the eight major articles in this, the first year of Marlo’s material in New Tops, there are innovative and ground-breaking plots, sleights, and subtleties, that have been largely unavailable since the run of the New Tops ended, notwithstanding the flat text of L & L’s MINT I and MINT II. If those books had been...

Gregg Webb
Triplets 2 by Gregg Webb

In this second installment of Triplets, which is an all-cards issue, Gregg describes a new variation of a card change of Jimmy Groppo's. Jimmy was the glad-hander of one of the casinos in Vegas and would do very direct magic effects for the customers.

Next are some very strong tips and additions to a trick called the Repeat Card to Pocket. At the end, Gregg explains how to do this feat with a signed selection.

Lastly, Gregg explains how to solve some of the common problems of a move called The Misdirection Palm. Many beginners make the same mistakes with this move and miss the point....

Judge Publishing Co.
Judge's Library No. 79 by Judge Publishing Co.

Judge's Library was a satirical periodical published in the USA from 1881 to 1947. It was a rival magazine to Puck founded among others by cartoonist James Albert Wales, dime novels publisher Frank Tousey and author George H. Jessop.

This issue No. 79 of Judge is all about poker. It provides a wonderful glimpse into how ubiquitous poker was in the US that such a successful periodical would dedicate an entire issue to it.

Also noteworthy, particularly for Erdnase scholars, is the fact that pretty much all the funny dialogs in this issue are in various national slang and ebonic. Thus the few lines...

In introducing this little book to the public it is my intention and desire to expose the multiplicity of ways by which cheating at cards is accomplished.

Graham Hey
The Big Story! by Graham Hey

A book test, a 3-card trick, and a 5-envelope impossible selection routine - all self-working.

A prediction envelope is placed on the table, along with the performer's favorite novel. The spectator is handed a magazine that has had the staples removed and is asked to select any one of the double pages she likes. It's a free choice. She is then asked to add all the page numbers together. Let's say the number totals 170. She turns to page 170 in the novel ... and the prediction reveals which city is mentioned, the make of car which is talked about, and the unusual word on line 4! In fact,...

Larry Travis
Ivy by Larry Travis

Here are six card magic routines, plus variations on two of them. All are truly impromptu, meaning they can be done with a borrowed, shuffled deck of ordinary cards. Some sleight-of-hand is required.

Synaptic - you reveal their thought-of card by "tuning in" to their senses

Maybe - an in-the-hands Open Prediction

Sweep - they choose a card through a visualisation process, but you knew their choice beforehand

Little Sympathy - impromptu sympathetic cards

Royal - a variation of Little Sympathy

Silver - they choose every card for two hands of poker, and you reveal a photographic...

Gary Jones
Life's a Beach Volume 2 by Gary Jones

Gary is one of those performers who is equally at home presenting magic to lay people or to a room full of magicians, and his creative output reflects those two requirements. Some of the magic in this collection is designed to intrigue and fool magicians, while other effects are fast, direct and perfect for working under almost any commercial conditions.

What all the magic has in common is that the methods have been constructed to extract the maximum effect for the minimum of fuss. Some of Gary's handlings do require some sleight of hand - he is very fond of palming cards, for instance...

Joseph K. Schmidt
R.C. Buff's The Best of Buff by Joseph K. Schmidt

A selection of new and novel rope magic from R.C. Buff's rare Rope Leaflets.

Excerpt from the introduction:

In 1980 Mr. R.C. Buff, "The Wizard Of Knotsville", started putting out a little Xeroxed publication called "BUFF'S LEAFLETS" which was devoted exclusively to Rope Magic. These LEAFLETS were published for over four years and contained a lot of fine material. Because they had such a limited distribution, it was deemed beneficial to the magical fraternity if some of this excellent material would be assembled into booklet form.

I think you will be amused and delighted to read some examples...

Collected Magic Series Volume 8 by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the introduction:

No, my ever so constant and indefatigable readers, this book contains no marvels, but merely the practical effects of men who conjure, men who think and men who achieve, in contradistinction to the dreamers who dream.

I said just now that there was nothing startling in this book; but there is some very good Magic. The "Snowman" takes my fancy. True, it makes use of plaguey and never-sufficiently-damned tubes. The peculiar stringing of a pack of cards which you will find on page - (How can I tell on which page it will eventually appear!) is alone worth the...

Maybe You Think by Joseph B.

Determine the card selected and the sum cast with two dice in a novel and very deceptive way.

You show a deck of cards, shuffle it and while you look away the spectator throws the two dice, adds the points shown, removes that many cards and remembers the lowest card in the removed packet. The dice are covered so that the performer can't see them. Now comes the unusual thing. The removed packet is inserted by the spectator somewhere in the middle of the pack. Then the spectator cuts and with a rosetta shuffle the cards are shuffled. This is immediately followed by any number of riffle and...

Fantastic by Sultan Orazaly

The impossible appearance of a pen in a bottle.

Show an empty plastic bottle and suddenly a big sharpie pen materializes inside the bottle. Dump the pen out and show it.

Note that this has very bad angles and can only successfully be performed in front of a camera or one stationary viewer. Great for YouTube and video chats but not an item performable with a live audience. Gimmick is easy to make.

Coke by Zaw Shinn

The magician draws a coke can on the back of a playing card. With a wave of his hand, the card changes to a real coke can.

Please note that this only works from a very narrow viewing angle and thus can only be successfully performed when a camera is between the performer and the spectator which allows precise control of the viewing direction. The gimmick is easy to make.

How To Do 60 Tricks with Cards by A. Anderson

Embracing all of the latest and most deceptive card tricks now in use.

Excerpt from the introduction:

From the earliest ages the Magic Art has been highly popular among all classes; and, of its many marvels, Card Tricks, whether produced by sleight of hand, mathematical combinations, or mechanical means, are the most generally appreciated. Cards are to be found in nearly every home circle, so the prestidigitateur always has his principal tools at his finger ends. With them alone the most startling surprises can be caused, and the card conjurer has also the advantage of knowing that all his...
