Stephen Ablett
The Parasol Act by Stephen Ablett

The Parasol Act was the opening routine in my children's show between 2008 and 2013. It was also featured in my competition act and adult cabaret shows. The routines taught in this download video was perfected primarily for children. It requires no jacket, no restrictive holders, can be performed wearing a short-sleeve shirt, and at the end of the act without fear of the parasols opening early. The only restriction is that your shirt must be tucked out at the back.

For the main routine; I produce five single parasols, and a final triple giant parasol after manipulating cocktail umbrellas....

Tommy Wonder
The Ring, the Watch and the Wallet by Tommy Wonder

The magician explains that he was once robbed. The thief took his ring, his watch and the money from his wallet. All these items are put into an envelope. Immediately after the magician tears up the envelope. All the items have vanished and returned to their original place. The ring is on the ring finger, the watch is on the wrist and the money is back in the wallet.

In this video you get a detailed explanation of how this routine works. As is typical with Tommy Wonder, he always teaches lessons which apply to many other effects. For example, he spends some time talking about where to attach...

George C. Bartlett
The Salem Seer by George C. Bartlett

Reminiscences of Charles H. Foster who some consider the most gifted and remarkable spiritual medium since Emanuel Swedenborg. This account gives facts and descriptions of many seances held in different parts of the world.

This is a fascinating account of Charles H. Foster's story - a medium who exhibited mostly skin writing (dermography) and pellet reading. When Foster visited England in 1861 materialization phenomena were added to his performances.

Foster enjoyed drinking alcohol and smoking cigars in barrooms with his companions as much as he did transmitting messages from the dead....

Dariel Fitzkee
The Strange Inventions of Doctor Ervin by Dariel Fitzkee

Doctor Edward George Ervin was a dentist and amateur magician whose mentor and teacher was famous William Robinson, aka Chung Ling Soo.

Excerpt from the introduction by T. Nelson Downs:

Nearly thirty years ago, when I first met Dr. Ervin I was not only greatly impressed with the man himself, but also the type of magic he stood for. During the passing years this impression has become increasingly strengthened. To me the words "Ervin" and "subtle ingenuity" mean one and the same thing, for I have been privileged to share the greater part of his choicest magical inventions during a long period.

As per the old proverb,...

The Table Magician by Mark Leveridge

The Professional Worker Series is a selection of targeted and focused ebooks which offer professional, sound advice on a number of key performance areas. The ebooks are written in an easy to understand style which cuts out all the waffle and padding, and instead gets right to the core of each subject.

Volume 3 in this series takes a close look at what is required to work commercial magic at a table side. It's probably true to say that more opportunities are available for close up magicians to work at a table side than for any other form of close up. From big dinner functions with large numbers...

Howard Thurston
The Thurston Magic Box of Candy by Howard Thurston

This is a little gem for collectors. Thurston produced a series of 50 tricks which were distributed in candy boxes. These are all tricks for beginners with largely common objects. They are very well described in a clear format (ghostwritten by Walter B. Gibson). First the title, then a block of illustrations followed by the trick description. That was followed by the sections "What You Need", "How To Do It" and "What To Say". Even a very young magician can follow these instructions and learn some neat tricks:

  2. The Fly-Away Coin.

The Ultimate Angle Proof Vanish by Hal Saxon

This can be the most powerfully deceptive steal or vanish in your thumb tip arsenal. No, it is not the Slydini Back Steal or the Vernon Kick Steal.

"This is the best 10 minutes of thumb tip magic ever! Thank you so much Hal." - Kim Fitzpatrick

The Ultimate Angle Proof Vanish video is by far the number one video download I have ever offered on the thumb tip. This is an incredibly deceptive, under your nose steal or vanish for not just a silk, but anything you can possibly fit in a thumb tip.

The Whiteboard Bat by Ian Adair

The whiteboard bat is a paddle with whiteboard surfaces that allow you to write or draw pretty much anything on it with an erasable marker. This allows you to customize the classic paddle trick to your heart's content. Ian Adair developed this idea in the 1970s from an older version that used a blackboard material and chalk. In this ebook you will find loads of ideas what to do with it.

Note that no paddles are included with this download. But it is not too difficult to make these yourself from self-adhesive whiteboard material.

Will Goldston
The Young Conjurer Part 1 by Will Goldston

From the introduction:

Before the young conjurer sets out to try and entertain his friends he should first devote a little time every day to practice. I always believe in a little practice every day. Every trick that one is going to present should be rehearsed over and over again until one is practically tired of it. When the conjurer knows a trick in that way he finds, when he is presenting it to an audience, that he is by no means tired of it, because the trick goes so well that he is bound to like it and it probably becomes one of his favourite tricks.

The Young Conjurer Part 2 by Will Goldston

It is a bit odd to teach productions of lighted cigarettes in a book for young conjurers, but perhaps those were the days when smoking was considered good for you.

From the introduction:

That brings me to another point. Don't be afraid of a mistake, and don't allow yourself to be discouraged by one. The best men make mistakes sometimes. Still, it is as well to guard against mistakes by rehearsals. Take one trick at a time and go over it many times until you know it thoroughly. Then - and not till then - go on to another trick. In this way you will soon build up quite a little store of...

Nicely illustrated routines of a full-time performer.

From the introduction:

"Why don’t you write a book on Magic?" I have been asked this question hundreds of times in the past several years, and my answer has been that I am too busy, or that I wanted to be the only Magician who did not write a Magic Book!

However, I have taken the time from my hundreds of shows en route each season to conduct a monthly column in TOPS Magazine and to write many articles and tricks for the Sphinx, Genii and Linking Ring. So when I was requested to compile all the tricks I had formerly written for these magazines...
