Alexander Herrmann
Herrmann's Wizards' Manual by Alexander Herrmann

From coin tricks to card tricks, black art, mindreading and even ventriloquism, this work is meant as an introduction for the budding magician and showman.

Excerpt from the introduction:

Magic naturally separates into two divisions: One, as performed by pure sleight-of-hand with ordinary objects; and the other, which depends upon apparatus or mechanical appliances; and these are called respectively Drawingroom, and Grand or Stage Magic. The former is made up of feats depending upon manual dexterity, chemical combinations, and arithmetical problems. Grand magic, likewise, consists of...

Bill Madsen & Al Forgione
Hex by Bill Madsen & Al Forgione

This is a great collection of tricks from a list of top-notch contributors.

From the introduction:

For six years, Al and I cooperated in a modest venture titled The New Jinx. It was a monthly magic journal conceived out of certain personal ambitions of mine. The first was to attempt a living memorial to the memory of Ted Annemann, creator of the original Jinx and an individual who has captured my interest more than any other single person I can think of. Next, I wanted to express my own personal viewpoints on the existing state of "professionalism" in stage magic and mentalism. Such a journal would...

Hidden Gems by Mark Elsdon

The best magic that you're not doing. This brand new eBook is a road map to great magic you already own...

For several years, the last item in my occasional Newsletters was a 'Hidden Gem' - a killer, overlooked trick that's already published somewhere; a book, magazine, eBook, blog or very occasionally a commercial release. Never from a DVD or video download. These are tricks that define the very concept of 'hidden in print'. In each entry I list the trick, where you can find it, why I love it and why you should look it up. I always describe the effect, occasionally the presentation, but never...

Hidden Gems 2 by Mark Elsdon

More killer magic that you're not doing. A guidebook to fabulous but forgotten material curated by Mark Elsdon.

He has been making notes and sticking Post-its in all his books for decades, so he has hundreds and hundreds of great tricks book-marked, annotated and logged, and after some (not so subtle) prompting by friends he finally decided to collect 100 of them together and publish them in an ebook.

That book - Hidden Gems - proved far more popular than he ever expected. So here we are with Vol. 2 and another 100 killer tricks that most of us have either forgotten about or never even seen before....

As previously recounted, I've been making notes and sticking Post-its in all my books for decades, so I still have hundreds of great tricks book-marked, annotated, and logged.

Ben Berger
Highlight Magic by Ben Berger

Highlight Magic contains top flight routines for close-up, parlor, and stage. While not every effect requires some knowledge of sleights, some require mid-level skill. Nelson Hahne did the pen and ink illustrations, and as usual, his work is top notch, too.

Contents

  • From the Publisher. Introductory comments from John Snyder, Jr., magic dealer and past president of the IBM.
  • THE SPIRIT OF THE COBRA. Three cards selected and returned to deck are tossed into a lidless box. Patter about a Cobra and a card peeps over the edge of the box and rises. Other cards are seen to be surprisingly...

George Hills
Hill-ucinations by George Hills

Excerpt from the foreword by Duncan Fletcher:

Now he has compiled a book which should appeal to all magicians as there is something for everyone; the close-up worker (coins, cigarettes, sewing needles, wool, lexicon cards), the children's entertainer, the mentalist and the 'card trick' enthusiast, and scattered throughout are suggestions concerning adaptations of well-known effects. Some of these tricks can be made up with little preparation - others like all good tricks require some preparations, but none are difficult to the performer who is accustomed to preparing his own props. No one...

Hocus Pocus Junior by unknown

This book includes detailed work on the "Cups and Balls," and the first version of the "Stack of Pence" (i.e., "Stack of Quarters"). It is probably the first English book written from the viewpoint of a performing magician. Any serious magician should read this book, not to learn a lot of new tricks, but to realize how much has been known for a long time. This book is part of our history. I understand that $60 or more for a paper reprint is hard to justify, but now for a few bucks there should be no excuse to not read this wonderful little treasure.

"It is a great, great read, especially your recounting of how Mr. Lawstone substituted workshop sheets for the actual apparatus." - Christopher Kenworthey
Many of you remember Vick Lawston's House of a Thousand Mysteries catalog. Most baby boomers that became magicians got their start from his catalog. They remember his slogan, "When you think of tricks, remember Vick's."

Inside his catalog he included three free tricks that you could try on your friends. These were decent tricks and were some of the first tricks I ever did. They have been re-written and included in this release. His...

How To Do The Black Art by A. Anderson

Containing a complete description of the mysteries of magic and sleight of hand, together with many wonderful experiments.

Excerpt from the introduction:

The chief requisites for success in the performance of the black art is manual dexterity and self-confidence; nimble fingers and a cool temper. Any one who exhibits feats of legerdemain, will do well to remember that one of the best methods of diverting the attention of the audience from the action of your fingers, is to keep talking; the more diverting your talk, the less attention will the audience give to your manipulation of the object...

Devin Knight
How To Make Your Eyes Flash by Devin Knight

A classic effect from the early days of magic catalogs. An effect that every kid wanted to order so he could impress his friends. Ads for this trick appeared in early Boy's Life and in comic books. It's an effect that is still effective today but is almost forgotten.

It is a little known secret that is even being used by some rock bands today to make their eyes flash during concerts.

Here is the ad copy from an early Vick Lawston magic catalog.

EFFECT: Create a real magical effect! Used by many magicians. By simply blinking your eyes open and shut, it seems as if streaks of lightning...

Devin Knight
Howard Thurston's Kid Hair Raising Trick by Devin Knight

A forgotten trick from the past that was first invented by Howard Thurston and used in his big show. The effect is that the magician invites up a boy from the audience and without touching the boy, he gestures toward the boy and the boy's hair stands on its end running from the front to back the back of his head, like a magical ripple. The hair falls down back to normal.

The magician raises his hand and the boy's hair once again stands on its end to the amazement of the audience. The magician quickly drops his hand and the boy's hair once again falls down, being normal again. The boy can then be used in...

Scott Xavier
I Always Get Stuck With The Bill by Scott Xavier

A magician stands before the crowd. He borrows a dollar bill from a spectator. The bill is given to another spectator, who is working as the security guard for this trick. The pseudo-security guard records the serial number from the bill onto a large dry erase board so everyone can experience the magic to come. A third spectator is given a paper bag and a knife.

The magician then asks for the bill to be placed inside of a small dish. The bill is dowsed with lighter fluid and then ignited with a barbecue lighter. The bill bursts into flames and eventually settles into a burned mess of ashes. ...
