Eddie Joseph
The Art of Body Loading and Productions by Eddie Joseph

From the introduction:

After all is said and done, of one thing we can be certain. When a Magician begins to pull out certain incongruous articles from under his volunteer's clothings he will be creating a natural form of comedy.

I know these things because I have been practicing them for the past 25 years or so. You, too, will share my views after your first public trial.

I know many Magicians who would like to incorporate this type of work into their program. They have refrained so far not because they "turn their noses" at such things but because they lack the requisite knowledge....

Lewis Ganson
The Art of Close-Up Magic Volume 1 by Lewis Ganson

Probably the greatest collection of close-up tricks ever assembled. And no card tricks are included in this first volume. It is so important not only because of its size (see the humongous table of contents below) and quality, but because the author has gone beyond the mere explanations of tricks and routines. The opening chapter, 'The Presentation of Close-Up Magic', embraces the whole approach to close-up performance. Includes hundreds of illustrations by Dennis Patten.

1st edition 1967, 344 pages; PDF 254 pages.

"I consider Eddie Joseph one of the magical geniuses of this age." - John Braun (editor of the Linking Ring).

"Eddie Joseph's material isn't only good.....it's great." - Lloyd E. Jones writing in Genii

"His originations have won him world acclaim and a niche in Magic's Hall of Fame." - Eddie Clever

"Just how one man can be so good in so many fields, we don't know. We do feel, however, that the world of magic can consider itself lucky that there is such a person. At one time, we remember Joe Berg arguing with us that there wasn't such a person, that it was a phoney name dreamed up to mask some top professional." - Sid Lorraine

Thomas Nelson Downs
The Art of Magic by Thomas Nelson Downs

The collaboration of T. Nelson Downs and John Northern Hilliard produced this wonderful book. Downs was the first to introduce an act with small objects onto the vaudeville stage.

The Art of Magic covers sleights with cards, coins, and balls, and teaches many tricks and routines with detailed explanations from the master.

The card section in this book was epoch making. It features the first appearance in print of the side steal. Based on the number of pages dealing with card magic this is more a card book than...

The Art of Modern Conjuring by unknown

Today we have the Masked Magician exposing magic secrets. Eighty years ago it probably was done by writing a book without the author's name given. I do not know if this book falls in the category 'exposure'. It certainly is a book that clearly reveals a lot of interesting tricks. One is the bullet catch. It has nearly 200 excellent photographs. Card and coin manipulation is dealt with in great detail. Overall a very good book. The photographs are the outstanding part.

A review in the March 1909 Sphinx states:

The Best in Magic by Bruce Elliott

The magic tricks presented here are subtle, easy to do, and require little or no apparatus. The inventions of some of our greatest magicians, these are sleights that involve a minimum of practice but achieve a maximum of effect.

Here are card tricks that are almost foolproof, and others that require some skill and more practice. Sleights for close-up performing, where the magic takes place right under the noses of the audience, and tricks with paper-folding, an ancient art adapted to modern magic, are outlined and diagramed. The author also includes tricks with coins and paper money, rings,...

This ebook includes both the text and the photos of the original two volume hardcover set. Each of the almost 1000 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 viewing of the action.
