Peter Wilker
Magic From Germany by Peter Wilker

From the introduction:

In English-speaking countries very little is known about magic in Germany, let alone in other countries like Poland, Switzerland or Spain. Unless a magician from one of these countries attends conventions in Britain or America regularly, and unless he speaks English, he will rarely be known. The two German magicians I want to talk about in these Lecture Notes - one from each side of the former Berlin wall - are perhaps the two best known in Germany today. Their names are Joro and Jochen Zmeck - how many of my readers, however, have ever heard of them?

Joro's real name is Bruno...

Ken de Courcy
Magic in Cabaret Land by Ken de Courcy

From the introduction:

The word itself, "Cabaret", carries overtones that conjure exotic pictures of nude dancers, the "Moulin Rouge" and German Beer Cellars; a sort of high-class iniquitous entertainment enjoyed by the lucky few. But that is all changed. It's been brought down to the level of the man-in-the-street. Now he can have a ringside seat for dining, dancing, drinking, a show ... and gambling.

Yet he won't take advantage of all this 'loose-living' unless there is also a "SHOW", as the proprietors of these establishments well know. There is a plethora of singers and 'groups', and...

Orville Wayne Meyer
Magic in the Modern Manner by Orville Wayne Meyer

This is a work most will not be familiar with. Many will dismiss it with 'another old magic book'. But those in the know have carefully studied it and hold it dear as one of the most valuable books for a working professional magician.

It is the original and the only one of four places where Annemann's bullet catch is described, because it was Orville Meyer who supplied Annemann with the method. All the three other places where this is described are out of print and hard to impossible to find.

And now this lost Orville Meyer gem has been made even more valuable by extensive annotations and a new...

Hereward Carrington
Magic is Fun / Magic for Everyone by Hereward Carrington

From the introduction:

There is no more fascinating study, when once an interest in the subject has been aroused, than conjuring - or, as it is popularly called, "Magic." One of the most delightful of all pastimes is the inventing and performing of new tricks, and watching their effect upon the audience - who do not know the secrets of the various "sleights" performed. We all know how fascinating the professional conjuror's entertainment is, - and how mystifying! So I propose to take my readers, - in the present book, - into the very heart of the mystery - to explain exactly how the important...

David Devant
Magic Made Easy by David Devant

An excellent selection of tricks by no other than David Devant. From his introduction:

I have always maintained that the art of the conjurer is closely allied to that of the actor, but with this difference: the actor selects a character and impersonates it. He has all the advantages of a proper dress, suitable to the character he is playing, of beautiful scenery, and music, and lighting, and the various other little things which are comprised in the theatrical word “effects.” The actor has all these aids to assist him in persuading people that the man they see is not the actor, but...

Incredible Rohit
Magic Moments by Incredible Rohit

Close-up magic routines.

Excerpt from the introduction:

In this book you will see that most of the effects are simple. Although some of them require a few basic counts and moves they are all entertaining. In fact all the effects can be good openers. Many of the card tricks use playing cards with unusual pictures. From my past experience I have seen that people prefer these kinds of cards more than the usual playing cards. As much as possible I have tried to avoid "select a card" effects, but for one which I feel is a very strong one. I don't claim that everything in this book is original...

Edward Victor
Magic of the Hands by Edward Victor

This is a classic in sleight-of-hand magic. From the foreword:

This BOOK is mainly on the art of sleight-of-hand and it is my earnest hope that these pages will afford practical help to both the specialist and the amateur magician.

During the period of over twenty-five years of practical magic I have formed the conclusion that in all conjuring, no matter how cleanly a trick may have been worked, it is the effect that counts.

A magical effect that one desires to "get over" must be definite and surprising. By definite I mean an easily followed plot or routine. By surprising I mean that...

Magic That Matures by Dave Arch

When I attend a magic convention, I enjoy the dealer's show very much. It sends me hurrying to the dealer room to see up-close what I just witnessed. After all, maybe it's something I should add to my show?

I also enjoy all that magic did for me as a child and the contribution it has made to my life as an adult. Magic put me in front of people, increased my confidence, built creativity, encouraged my ability to read and comprehend oftentimes cryptic directions, expanded my memory and many more skills that I still leverage in my career today.
