Will Goldston
Great Tricks Revealed by Will Goldston

From the introduction by Horace Goldin:

The present book is, I think, one of Will Goldston's best perhaps - the best. I am quite certain that the man who cannot learn magic from this book will never be a magician. All kinds of tricks are clearly explained and, to make quite sure that his readers will understand every word, the author has supplemented his clear explanations of tricks with numbers of equally clear illustrations. Looking through the book I find that in many places the letterpress is hardly necessary; the pictures "do the trick".

I should like to add a word of advice to any young man who...

Tony Griffith
Griff on Close-Up by Tony Griffith

Excerpt from the Foreword:

In this book, again you will find not only tricks that work, but more important, entertaining close-up routines, with the accent on entertainment. Some of the effects may not be new, but they all have a most unusual twist, or that little something that makes them different.

As long as I have known Tony Griffith, which is over ten years now, he has never been contented to purchase a trick and do it as per instructions. He is a firm believer in reading the mechanics of the trick, then throwing the working and routine away, and starting from scratch. These then...

Al Forman
Handbook of Telephone Telepathy by Al Forman

Over 30 easily learned mind reading routines to baffle and entertain friends and audiences anywhere a phone exists. Although this was written at a time mobile phones were not available, many of these miracles are directly applicable today where a cell phone is pretty much available anywhere.

Some effects require elaborate preparation, others can be performed at a moments notice. Several are the creation of the author, but most are adaptations of known methods to the telephone.

Forman discusses three groups of phone tricks. The first group consists of code routines. The data to be conveyed...

Charles Waller
Happy Magic Part 1 by Charles Waller

From the Introduction:

Here, as always, I have assembled a varied lot of material in the hope that all tastes will be satisfied. It is all original; or as much so as conjuring creations usually are. I am particular in this regard, for I am almost morbidly sensitive to any charge of "piracy." This is strange when one considers that mine is the honour of having introduced the Jolly Roger as a conjuring property.

Nelson C. Hahne & Joe Berg
Here's Magic by Nelson C. Hahne & Joe Berg

When one of magic's most clever minds teams up with an award-winning magician and illustrator, you know the result will be unique effects that play strong and is so clever that even magicians are fooled. And that's what you get with Hahne and Berg's Here's Magic.

There is literally something for every performer within these 96 pages. Effects with cards, coins, silks, a gambler's monte effect using a single matchbook, club magic, a stage illusion that predates Copperfield's Statue of Liberty vanish by some 50 years (but with a similar method), mentalism effects, the award-winning poker chip...

Joe Berg
Here's New Magic by Joe Berg

Seven years in the making! Another great book by the co-author of Here's Magic.

Magician-dealer Joe Berg reveals 23 secrets of magic that, prior to the release of this book, had never before been divulged. With the assistance of Martin Gardner, Berg reveals his best, tested tricks and routines that magicians of every ilk will put to immediate use.

Featuring killer effects such as the "Adhesive Tape Thumb-Tie" that, unlike a $25 manuscript that uses red electrician's tape, works with any tape and uses no external gimmicks. Or how about "The Magical Hatchery" — a cute effect that's a hit for club workers.

Alexander Herrmann
Herrmann's Book of Magic by Alexander Herrmann

A complete and practical guide to drawing-room and stage magic for professionals and amateurs, including a complete exposure of the black art.

Excerpt from the introduction:

Do not cultivate quick movements; at the same time it will never do to be painfully slow; but endeavor to present your tricks in an easy-going, quiet, graceful manner. It is generally understood that “the quickness of the hand deceives the eye,” but this is entirely erroneous. It is impossible for the hand to move quicker than the eye can follow, as can be proved by experiment. The deception really lies in the...

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...

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...

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....

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.
