Aldo Colombini
The Magic of Rachel Colombini by Aldo Colombini

16 commercial routines using cards, balls, money, books and other props.

  • Card Control: A card chosen by a spectator matches a card previously placed face down on the table by the magician.
  • Blank-Mazement: Following the numbers of two dice, a spectator finds the only two printed cards in a packet of all blank cards.
  • Hats and Rabbits: You place a prediction on the table. While your head is facing away, a spectator places five cards with hats and a rabbit in any order, holding the packet of cards in his hand. You give the spectator some instructions, and at the end the cards are apparently...

Maurice Sardina
The Magic of Rezvani by Maurice Sardina

Translated from French (La Magie du Sorcier) to English by Dariel Fitzkee. It details the tricks, moves, ideas, and improvements of Rezvani, the Persian magician who has been a sensation among the magicians of Paris. Overall it is an excellent work, particularly for those who appreciate the finer points of sleights and how they are deployed in tricks. There is a lot here for card magicians. Also his most famous trick the Tomato trick is explained, but for that routine, I suggest studying The Cushions of the Princess: or the tomato game.

Paul Flemming writes:

Lewis Ganson & Tony Slydini
The Magic of Slydini by Lewis Ganson & Tony Slydini

This is a classic book, probably one of the best books on close-up magic ever written. Now available as an ebook with an improved layout. The original book had 448 photos grouped together in full-page photo plates. This meant that most photos were removed from the text which goes along with the photos. We have corrected this error in this digital edition. All photos have been inserted in the text where they are referred to.

Slydini was a genius of misdirection. Every movement and every word is deliberately chosen to direct the attention of spectators as well as to produce a graceful and engaging...

P. T. Selbit
The Magical Entertainer by P. T. Selbit

The subtitle reads: Teaching you how to give a complete evening's entertainment of new conjuring tricks with highly-amusing patter, laughable ventriloquism and a diverting magical sketch.

From the introduction:

In venturing the contribution of a second magical manual to the already large library of works on conjuring, we are impressed with the belief that however modest our attempt may be we are at least going a step in the direction toward still further popularizing the art of the conjurer. We believe it is necessary for magic to be given to the public more as an amusing entertainment...

Karl Fulves & Tony Slydini
The Magical World of Slydini (Text & Photos) by Karl Fulves & Tony Slydini

This is the continuation of Best of Slydini ... and more.

As the first volume, this ebook includes both the text and the photos of the original two volume hardcover set. Each of the more than 1300 photos is available twice. The first time the photos appear dispersed through the text close to where each photo is first mentioned. And the second time all photos are together in one place, the same way this material was originally published - text and photos separate. Having the photos included with the text avoids the constant reference to another volume. But having them also together by themselves allows for a stop-motion-like...

P. T. Selbit
The Magician's Handbook by P. T. Selbit

The inventor of "sawing a lady in half" has written quite an interesting book. It covers a good range of topics. Particularly the inclusion of fringe fields to magic, such as juggling and black art, makes this book unique. Certainly this is mainly a magic book, so tricks with handkerchiefs, and balls are many to be found as well as several interesting illusions. This book is in one other respect quite different to other books. The table of contents is in alphabetical order. So Selbit has kind of combined contents and index - interesting.

The Magnetic Thumb Tip Done Right by Hal Saxon

This isn't your fathers magnetic thumb tip. Your tipistry reimagined and revolutionized. Tipistry means breathtaking thumb tip handling ability, competence, proficiency, or mastery.

This guide will show you how to dramatically improve your thumb tip ability (Tipistry) with magnets. How can something so simple and so overlooked be so amazing? One person posted on a forum many years ago and said, "Don't get a magnetic tip. You can do anything you can do with a magnetic tip with a PK Ring." (Magnetic ring). Nope. No way. Totally misguided.

David Phelps Abbott
The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy by David Phelps Abbott

Joseffy, Josef P. Freud, was a magician from Vienna, Austria. He came to the US when he was 19 years old, and initially worked as manufacturer of props and apparatus for a magic shop in Chicago. Eventually he designed and built his own unexplainable creations, several of which are described in this ebook. However, only the effects are given, no methods are described. Abbott briefly outlines old methods for similar effects, but does not provide the methods Joseffy uses. This book is therefore a promotional item rather than a traditional magic book. It includes many staged photos of Joseffy presenting...

The Miracle Floating Light Effect by Burling Hull

Get more mileage from your floating lamp or ball effect with this outstanding ebook. The floating light is a beautiful and mysterious stage effect whereby an illuminated light bulb (that may be in a lamp) visibly detaches itself and floats across the stage, apparently under the performer's control. The performer makes mystic gestures toward himself and the lighted bulb floats toward him and lands in his palm. It may be carried to the footlights and shown all around. It can even be laid on the palm of a spectator. The magician then throws the bulb away from him several feet, and at a snap of...

The Miracle Makers by J. G. Thompson Jr.

From the back cover by Karl Fulves:

The Thompson name having been associated with quality magic for the past fifty years, the reader of this new book will need no recommendation as to the value of the material. It contains all of the Thompson trademarks; new ideas, subtle approaches, smoothly routined magic, impeccably researched articles, inscrutable titles, excellent patter and presentation suggestions. All of this is well known and indeed synonymous with the Thompson name. There is another facet to the material in this book which may not be readily apparent however, and it is this which I'd like...

Charles Lang Neil
The Modern Conjurer by Charles Lang Neil

This is my favorite magic book. The reason for this is that it was a groundbreaking book at the time it appeared and its contents is excellent. It was the first magic book that had photos instead of drawings or engravings throughout. And the contents is fantastic. It is one of the few books with a large chapter on chapeaugraphy. Add to this great chapters on shadowgraphy, plate spinning and paper folding. A large part is devoted to card magic, magic with coins, balls, and handkerchiefs, and much much more. If I would have to select one book this would be it. It is a book not many people know about. But you...

August Roterberg
The Modern Wizard by August Roterberg

Roterberg was a dealer, but he also wrote excellent magic books - four altogether. The Card Tricks and how to do them is an excerpt from New Era Card Tricks. So actually he wrote only three books. The Modern Wizard was his first one. It explains tricks with silks, eggs, glasses, billiard balls, coins, candles, pill boxes and more. Roterberg has a very efficient style of describing a trick. He supplies no patter or other fluff, but still manages to explain a trick thoroughly. He packs 68 tricks or methods into merely 120 pages. He closes his book with the chapter "The Art of Magic" where Roterberg gives a crash course in how to be a good magician....

Spectators examine three safety pins and hand them back to the performer who immediately demonstrates that no matter how the pins are laid on the table they will invariably end up with all their opening sides facing the same direction. If the performer attempts to lay one of the pins down facing the wrong way it will flip itself over in front of the spectators eyes.

Next the pins are shown to repel each other violently when held in a certain way.

The three pins are layed flat on the table. Performer picks up one...

Ulysses Frederick Grant
The New York City Lecture by Ulysses Frederick Grant

U. F. Grant seldom did live lectures. One of the few he did was for the Magician's Guild of American in New York City on Oct. 13, 1952. These are the original lecture notes. These notes are very rare and almost impossible to find as they were sold only at the lecture and not distributed through magic dealers.

Here are the contents; none require any difficult sleights and all are easy to do.

Bombay Rope Cut: A cut and restored rope that involves tying no knots.
