Earl Reum
Magic for the Civic Club by Earl Reum

There are many shows to be had among the various luncheon, commercial and civic clubs found in all cities, but they don't really like "fun shows." They prefer something with a message. The excellent program Dr. Reum has created here, based on his own experience, ties in with magic tricks you probably have at home. This is all tied in very neatly with the patter which is so suitable and so right for the organization show. It can also be exactly timed, which is also a must with these shows.

Dr. Reum was co-ordinator of student activities of the city of Denver, plus being obligated for many...

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....

Eddie Joseph
A Magician Goes To Dinner by Eddie Joseph

From the introduction:

The tricks described here are for "extempore" showing. They have been specially developed for entertaining fellow diners, within watching distance, around a banquet or dinner table.

To perform "extempore" is not the same as giving a show on the stage. In one's regular program everything is premeditated. Performing to a group around the table is different. To begin with, the tricks must be of the type that could be worked without much ado. They must be short and spontaneous. They must be worked in an "off-hand" manner. Finally, not only in character but in appearance...

Edward Bagshawe
The Le Walke Mysteries by Edward Bagshawe

Here's an amazing ebook of new effects and improvements to magic and mentalism classics, from the fertile mind of a master craftsman. Long off the market, this updated and expanded edition brings to life 16 miracles from the workshop of George Le Walke, the genius and craftsman who created effects for several well-known magic dealers. These miracles of magic and thought-reading will get your mind to thinking of ways to add one or more of them to your own act.

While some of the described effects do require workshop skills, they can be constructed in most anyone's home shop. If you're not mechanically...

Edward Bagshawe
Exclusive Problems in Magic by Edward Bagshawe

From the introduction:

This book has been primarily written for the Drawing-Room and Concert Artist who will, I trust, find the material offered for his perusal, sufficiently away from the "beaten track" to be of practical value. The majority of the effects described have been thoroughly "tried out" - and therefore they can be relied upon to "work." I have endeavoured to set forth a selection of original ideas that are not only (to the best of my belief) new in effect, but, to some extent, in method also - thus checkmaking the spectator who knows just a little too much.

More Magical Mysteries by Edward Bagshawe

From the introduction:

For this reason I have endeavoured only to include effects of a practical nature, and ideas in which simplicity is the keynote. Anything in the nature of "conjuring for conjurers" has been rigorously excluded, and wherever an idea is made use of that is not my own, full credit has been given to the originator.

Edward Bagshawe
Twenty Magical Novelties by Edward Bagshawe

In this work, we find for the first time the popular Out-to-lunch principle (see for example Anagramation by Jim Krenz) being published.

From the introduction:

The better one becomes acquainted with magic, the more one realizes that the word "novelty" must be used with care. That is, if one wishes to be strictly veracious. Nevertheless, I believe the reader will find that the various offerings in this book possess some element of newness - either in the effects themselves or the methods outlined.

It will be noted that I have not included items that are only accessories or suggestions (with which another book...

Edward M. Massey
New and Original Magic by Edward M. Massey

Massey was the inventor of many mechanical magic tricks that have become part of the routines of modern magicians. Probably his most successful invention was the Finger Guillotine, which he sold to Max Holden. More than thirty of his tricks are explained in this beautiful and scarce publication.

There are 26 mechanical gems described and explained with enough detail to allow the home builder to construct them with little trouble. He explains six utility devices and seven sleights. His electro-magnetic drumhead loader uses technology which was innovative for 1922. The clockwork "automatic...

Edward Victor
Magic of the Hands by Edward Victor

This is a classic in sleight-of-hand magic. From the foreword:

This BOOK is mainly on the art of sleight-of-hand and it is my earnest hope that these pages will afford practical help to both the specialist and the amateur magician.

During the period of over twenty-five years of practical magic I have formed the conclusion that in all conjuring, no matter how cleanly a trick may have been worked, it is the effect that counts.

A magical effect that one desires to "get over" must be definite and surprising. By definite I mean an easily followed plot or routine. By surprising I mean that...

More Magic of the Hands by Edward Victor

This is volume two in the classic sleight-of-hand trilogy. From the foreword:

Since many branches of Magic are again represented in this volume, a close study of it will, I sincerely hope, assist the reader in perhaps making some little change, addition or improvement in an existing 'move' or effect in which he may be interested.

I have included in this book my method of working and presenting "The Chinese Rings," mainly for those of my readers who have not up to now performed this effect, and who may desire a reliable and effective method of presentation for this "classic" trick.

Further Magic of the Hands by Edward Victor

This is volume three in the classic sleight-of-hand trilogy. From the foreword by Douglas Craggs:

In this volume the reader will find a valuable and varied collection of magical effects with something to appeal to all tastes and styles. Whatever selection the reader ultimately makes from the book to enlarge his programme, may I express the hope that he will pay the author the compliment of thorough rehearsal before public presentation. Good tricks, cunning subtleties, need to be learned with care; otherwise the author's time and the reader's money are wasted, and the public is disappointed....

Edwin Sachs
Sleight of Hand by Edwin Sachs

This is an all time classic with 57 beautiful illustrations. It is one of the most complete books written on magic, because it teaches both stage and close-up magic (cards, coins, silks, cups and balls, etc.), technique, presentation, and all the peripheral skills necessary for great conjuring.

"I beg to say that it is far and away the very best work of its kind ever published" - Harry Kellar

From the Preface:

The object of this little book is to supply the amateur conjurer with a simple text-book on his art, leading him by graduated stages from the first principles to a degree of proficiency at which he will be able to produce magical effects on the stage or in the drawing-room.

The Appendix sets forth clearly the construction of the various pieces of apparatus referred to in the text, so that the amateur will be able either to construct these himself or get them cheaply made.

Lastly, the author would like to add, that most of the tricks and illusions contained in this...
