Further Expert Magic: Collected Magic Series Volume 4 by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the preface:

It is to be supposed (and profoundly hoped) that something good may be found herein: a quantity of sketches of more or less merit; certain idioms straight from the American; strange words in italic with wriggly accents; and, possibly, one or two typographical errors (the light is so bad in my attic and the gas has been cut off for many months past).

Edward Victor
Further Magic of the Hands by Edward Victor

This is volume three in the classic sleight-of-hand trilogy. From the foreword by Douglas Craggs:

In this volume the reader will find a valuable and varied collection of magical effects with something to appeal to all tastes and styles. Whatever selection the reader ultimately makes from the book to enlarge his programme, may I express the hope that he will pay the author the compliment of thorough rehearsal before public presentation. Good tricks, cunning subtleties, need to be learned with care; otherwise the author's time and the reader's money are wasted, and the public is disappointed....

J. C. Wagner
Glass Through Bar by J. C. Wagner

Glass through table is a classic of magic that is at least a hundred years old. You can even find it described in children magic books.

Graham Hey
Going GaGa by Graham Hey

Going GaGa is a new ebook by Graham Hey containing some brand-new material and a couple of little-known classics brought up to date. They're all easy to do and brilliantly effective. You'll probably have most things you need to do these tricks - cards, duplicates, envelopes, etc.

Going GaGa is a great mentalism effect and a total 'magician fooler'. It's clever and easy to do. The performer hands a prediction to a spectator. Two spectators are given a pile of cards each. The first spectator shuffles his cards and selects any one. He is handed a list of celebrities and counts down - if he...

Jim Sisti
Grandpa's Fruit Knives by Jim Sisti

From the introduction:

One of the things that I had to come to grips with when I became a full-time professional performer more than 20 years ago was that I needed to stop focusing on tricks that I liked and had to find ones that my spectators liked. I also decided to try and make my presentations less expositional ("Watch this coin…" kind of stuff) and more about personal expression – letting the audience get to know me perhaps a little bit better as a result of the magic.

This manuscript is the result of my explorations into the Color-Changing Knives. I always loved the trick but...

Ulysses Frederick Grant
Grant in the Tarbell Magic Course by Ulysses Frederick Grant

U. F. Grant contributed some of his best material to the Tarbell Course in magic. Most of this material is unique to the Tarbell Course and does not appear elsewhere. Before Grant died, he compiled a manuscript containing all of the material he contributed. It ranges from close up to stage illusions. A lot of magicians don't have the original Tarbell Course, so here is your chance to get all of the tricks he created and contributed in one place. Fully illustrated and one of the best buys in magic. This is stuff you will use and do and as Harlan Tarbell said, some of the best magic in his course.

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...

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...
