From The Sphinx: And here is another one that awakens my cereberzation - Harry Leat's Tragic Magic.

Diversified Magic by Harry Leat

From The Sphinx: Diversified Magic is Harry Leat's latest contribution to magical lore. Diversified rightly describes the contents of the book. The variety is great, the quality superior, the originality genuine. Of the twenty chapters it is difficult to say which is the most interesting, and of the tricks and other effects, which is the best. The Organ Pipe Pagoda, and the Eclipse Ventriloquial Figure are alone worth more than the price of the book. Mr. Leat's introduction is full of matter for serious thought and consideration. The patter for the tricks, and the dialogue for the vent. figure are lively,...

Intriguing Magical Ideas by Harry Reeve

From the introduction:

I think Edwin has been a little presumptuous in billing this lecture as 'Originalities'. Most new ideas and twists spring from something that has gone before so I lay no claim to the basics but enjoy playing around with them to produce 'new' material etc. to entertain. Time is short so let's get on. Descriptions are brief and condensed mainly printed here to serve as memory joggers to the demonstrations in the lecture. I hope they help you to make up and perform something that you have found to your personality. You have my permission to make a 'one-off' for your own...

Magicians' Tricks by Henry Hatton & Adrian Plate

This book was rated one of the ten basic books for a working library of conjuring by H. Adrian Smith, historian, collector and owner of the largest private magic library in his time.

Cyclopedia of Magic is an interesting book. It's primary quality stems from its alphabetical organization.

Magic is Fun / Magic for Everyone by Hereward Carrington

From the introduction:

There is no more fascinating study, when once an interest in the subject has been aroused, than conjuring - or, as it is popularly called, "Magic." One of the most delightful of all pastimes is the inventing and performing of new tricks, and watching their effect upon the audience - who do not know the secrets of the various "sleights" performed. We all know how fascinating the professional conjuror's entertainment is, - and how mystifying! So I propose to take my readers, - in the present book, - into the very heart of the mystery - to explain exactly how the important...
