Westminster WizardryFrederick Montague
Montague was a member of the Hous of Commons and a hobby magician, which lead to his nickname "Conjurer of the House of Commons." Most of the tricks described here are of his invention.
From the introduction by Will Goldston:
All the tricks explained in the book are thoroughly practical; that I should know if I had not seen the written explanations of the secrets, because all the tricks described in this book have been performed by the author at the Magicians’ Club. That being the case, I strongly recommend the reader to study the book thoroughly and thus add some of the tricks to his repertoire;...

Exquisite ConjuringFriedrich W. Conradi-Horster
Conradi was the largest manufacturer of magic apparatus in Germany in the early 20th century. He wrote and published several major magic books and his magazine Zauberspiegel (Magic Mirror) predates Mahatma, the first American magic magazine. We should not forget that around 1900 Germany was dominating the magic market. Some of the largest magic retailers in the US, such as Roterberg, built their entire business on importing goods from various German manufacturers, such as Conrad-Horster, and then reselling them in the US. Roterberg's most successful book New Era Card Tricks was little more than a translation of effects taken from various...

Some More Exquisite ConjuringFriedrich W. Conradi-Horster
From the Foreword:
When publishing my first book in the English language, Exquisite Conjuring, I was led by the thoughts, that perhaps, after having edited over 30 books about Magic in German, it may be an interesting experiment to see, what the English speaking fraternity would have to say, if I would publish a book in the English language and if the praise, I received from all sides as an author of books on Magic since these last 20 years and more, would really warrant such a new venture!
Well, I must say, that my expectations have not only been realised, but they have in fact been surpassed by far in...

Modern MysteriesG. C. Hines
To tell you the truth, I do not know much about the author, G. C. Hines. But this shouldn't distract us from the contents of this neat little booklet. He describes how you can dye your own handkerchiefs. You will find some routines with handkerchiefs and two methods for the rising card - one for a stage and one for a parlor setting; two floating ball routines and a flag vase routine.

Excerpt from the introduction by Kevin James:
These notes are a compilation of some of his newest ideas as well as some classic Bloom. He is well known around the world as a powerhouse creative magical inventor.
His genius is in the simplicity of his methods and the strong impact they have on the audience. He is a minimalist, allowing nothing to distract from the magic. Most of his ideas are with very ordinary objects making the impact even stronger on the audience.

Scalbert's Selected SecretsGeoffrey Scalbert
From the foreword by Fred Castl:
He is a great student of Erdnase and I know of no one who knows more about "jog" shuffles than Geoff. He knows more forces than Annemann wrote about but he has also kept up with modern sleights and moves. The magician who wants long and involved routines will be unlucky when he reads this book, but what he will find will be tricks with a plot and methods simplified wherever possible to include the minimum of sleights but the maximum of effect, and I shall be very surprised if there is any magician who cannot find in this book something to use.
