Henry Ridgely Evans
Magic and its Professors by Henry Ridgely Evans

From the introduction:

To those amateurs and to my numerous professional friends who delight in new books, I send forth "Magic and its Professors," trusting that it will prove of interest to them. Part III is a symposium on magic by some of the best performers and inventors of the day. I sincerely thank them for the labor of love which they have rendered. I am indebted to Mr. T. Francis Fritz, the editor of Mahatma, and Mr. William J. Hilliar, editor of The Sphinx, for the right to reprint in book form some of the valuable exposes contained in their respective journals. I am also under obligations to those...

Jean Hugard
Magic Annual 1937 (Hugard's Annual of Magic) by Jean Hugard

In general magic books cover a certain subject area. Here a slice through time is offered. The 'Magic Annual' describes the best and most popular effects from one year. (There is a second volume in this series Magic Annual 1938-1939.)

Max Holden writes in the introduction: "Some of the items are new, some are old tricks given a novel twist, while other effects, although known in a general way, are now published in detail for the first time - among these latter, the Hugard Fire Eating Act, Hugard's Bullet Catching Feat and my own presentation of Smoke Pictures. Jean Hugard has given his best, as usual, and I am...

Jean Hugard
Magic Annual 1938-1939 (Hugard's Annual of Magic) by Jean Hugard

The second and last book in the Magic Annual series Jean Hugard wrote for Max Holden. (Also consider the first volume Magic Annual 1937.)

Paul Fleming wrote:

Hugard's Annual of Magic for 1938-1939 is similar to its 1937 predecessor in size and format. It is a volume of 126 pages (137 minus 11, since the text begins on page 11), and has good illustrations by Nelson Hahne, good paper, good printing, and a good-looking cover of blue, gold-stamped fabrikoid. Like the earlier Annual, it deals with sleights and tricks in several branches of conjuring.

Mr. Hugard begins this book auspiciously with an eight-page essay on extempore...

Bruce Elliott
Magic as a Hobby by Bruce Elliott

Tricks for amateur performers.

Excerpt from the foreword by Orson Welles:

It is entirely possible that this excellent book should never have been published - not like this; anyway, not for general sale.

There are two kinds of magic books, you know. The kind they give away with the box top off a breakfast cereal, and this kind of book, which tells explicitly and with pictures - so the reader can really get the hang of them - valuable secrets of professional magic. In brief, I'm sorry that this one is so very good but I'd be honestly sorrier if it were bad.

At the outset it should...

Ken de Courcy
Magic Balloons by Ken de Courcy

From the introduction:

It was that well-known West Country entertainer, Roy Van Dyke, who made me realise balloons can be used for more purposes than screwing into strange shapes sometimes resembling animals. He has a terrific opening trick that has colour, movement and noise that never fails to grab and hold the attention of today's show-saturated audiences.

Excerpt from the Foreword:

Percy is an Australian and he has traveled all over the world, particularly in the Orient where he has searched out all the magic of the East. His head is full of the wonderful things that the Chinese, Japanese, East Indians and all those wonderful people of the East do.

We have had the opportunity to see and look through some of the Chinese books on magic and while we can’t read a word of it, yet the illustrations show some most ingenious devices and gimmicks and it is these things in which Abbott excells.

Earl Reum
Magic for the Civic Club by Earl Reum

There are many shows to be had among the various luncheon, commercial and civic clubs found in all cities, but they don't really like "fun shows." They prefer something with a message. The excellent program Dr. Reum has created here, based on his own experience, ties in with magic tricks you probably have at home. This is all tied in very neatly with the patter which is so suitable and so right for the organization show. It can also be exactly timed, which is also a must with these shows.

Dr. Reum was co-ordinator of student activities of the city of Denver, plus being obligated for many...

Magic for the Millions by Greer Maréchal, Jr.

This is an excellent magic book that deserves to be known more widely. Bruce Elliott wrote in the foreword:

This introduction to a noble and ancient kind of amusement will lead you as a primer should, from the easy to the more difficult. It stops short of the really difficult, again as a primer should. It helps you on the road to becoming, for better or worse, a magician.

For the better? Yes, for a way to enjoy yourself, to get a kick out of performing something that is out of the ordinary. For the worse? If this book serves its purpose, you will have set your faltering feet on the rocky...

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...

Always he has retained this keeness for what he calls "Magic in Miniature" and this has been the one anchor of an otherwise erratic young man.

His great enthusiasm, for practically everything, and his willingness to perform his...

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...
