Bar Tricks and Magic 1 by Julian Bradbrook

This is a neat little collection of bar tricks, stunts and simple magic effects. Some of it will be familiar to you, some have a new twist or plot and others might be completely new to you.

It is a good idea to have a few of these stunts ready when you are not prepared to do a full magic show, but still want to be the center of attention.

Lewis Ganson & Dai Vernon
The Dai Vernon Book of Magic by Lewis Ganson & Dai Vernon

I was lucky that I stumbled across this book very early on in my magic development. It had a huge impact on how I approached magic and how I think today about magic. The introductory chapter "The Vernon Touch" should be mandatory reading for every magician. I would go so far as to recommend re-reading it every year. Martin Breese wrote: "One of the most important books of magic ever written." Max Holden said: "I consider Vernon the greatest man with a pack of cards of the present day." Many consider Dai Vernon, the professor, as one who had probably the biggest impact on magic in recent times. ...

Jean Hugard
Modern Magic Manual by Jean Hugard

In this classic manual, the first Hugard wrote for people outside the inner circle of magic performers, he reveals the secrets of a host of mystifying tricks covering all major forms of close-up and stand-up magic: conjuring with coins, watches, rings, balls, eggs, silks, cigarettes, cigars, thimbles, flowers, ropes, bills, cards and mental magic.

Magic Annual 1937 (Hugard's Annual of Magic) by Jean Hugard

In general magic books cover a certain subject area. Here a slice through time is offered. The 'Magic Annual' describes the best and most popular effects from one year. (There is a second volume in this series Magic Annual 1938-1939.)

Max Holden writes in the introduction: "Some of the items are new, some are old tricks given a novel twist, while other effects, although known in a general way, are now published in detail for the first time - among these latter, the Hugard Fire Eating Act, Hugard's Bullet Catching Feat and my own presentation of Smoke Pictures.

Magic Annual 1938-1939 (Hugard's Annual of Magic) by Jean Hugard

The second and last book in the Magic Annual series Jean Hugard wrote for Max Holden. (Also consider the first volume Magic Annual 1937.)

Paul Fleming wrote:

Hugard's Annual of Magic for 1938-1939 is similar to its 1937 predecessor in size and format. It is a volume of 126 pages (137 minus 11, since the text begins on page 11), and has good illustrations by Nelson Hahne, good paper, good printing, and a good-looking cover of blue, gold-stamped fabrikoid. Like the earlier Annual, it deals with sleights and tricks in several branches of conjuring.

The Magic of Slydini by Lewis Ganson & Tony Slydini

This is a classic book, probably the best book 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...

Perpetuity Tube by Ron Jaxon

The Perpetuity Tube is a perfect follow up for one of Ron's other ebooks called Bill Burner because it uses an objects that's logical to have with a lighter (a small cigar tube). In other words it's a perfect place for the vanished bill to magically (and visually) travel into.

But that's not all you can do with these little tubes. Just about anything that can fit in them can be made to magically and visually appear, vanish or turn into other objects in a very visual manner. Just to give you an idea of the kinds of things you can accomplish with the Perpetuity tubes:

After Rosini's death, Frederick Braue wrote in the February, 1949 issue of Hugard's Magic Monthly, "What a book Rosini could have written - and now his knowledge of audiences is lost. Others, take note." Unfortunately, Rosini never did get the chance to write a book detailing his own methods. He planned on writing one, but his dream was never realized during his lifetime.

In 1947 Paul approached his longtime friend and fellow magician Rufus Steele to aid him in writing a book of his tricks. Steele was a mysterious character whose background was questionable to say the least. An electrical engineer by trade, Rufus was also a gambler and...
