Loring Campbell
This Is Magic by Loring Campbell

Nicely illustrated routines of a full-time performer.

From the introduction:

"Why don’t you write a book on Magic?" I have been asked this question hundreds of times in the past several years, and my answer has been that I am too busy, or that I wanted to be the only Magician who did not write a Magic Book!

However, I have taken the time from my hundreds of shows en route each season to conduct a monthly column in TOPS Magazine and to write many articles and tricks for the Sphinx, Genii and Linking Ring. So when I was requested to compile all the tricks I had formerly written for these magazines...

Joseph White
A Scotch Brand of Magic by Joseph White

Magic enabled by double sided tape.

This ebook will show you how to place a coin at the tips of your fingers and, in full view of the audience, cause that coin to vanish in an instant! All this without the use of a pull. You may shake your hands vigorously to prove that nothing is contained therein. You then proceed to produce coin after coin from mid-air - you will produce a number of coins, not just one. With this new method of palming it is possible for the magician to work in short sleeves (or, for that matter, with no sleeves at all). You can show both hands convincingly empty and at...

Devin Knight
The Great Apple Heist by Devin Knight

A great trick for kid shows, especially at Halloween. Two kids take an equal turn at removing apples from a bowl. Yet one child ends up with 5 apples and the other 2 apples. Baffling to an audience. Magician directs from a distance.

These are some of the most unusual effects ever developed for a stand-up performer. Effects your audiences haven't seen before. These routines are based on an ancient close-up effect that has been revised so it can be seen on the largest stage or in someone's living room. You can work this under any conditions with no angle problems or special props. Routines...

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....

Ulysses Frederick Grant
The New York City Lecture by Ulysses Frederick Grant

U. F. Grant seldom did live lectures. One of the few he did was for the Magician's Guild of American in New York City on Oct. 13, 1952. These are the original lecture notes. These notes are very rare and almost impossible to find as they were sold only at the lecture and not distributed through magic dealers.

Here are the contents; none require any difficult sleights and all are easy to do.

Bombay Rope Cut: A cut and restored rope that involves tying no knots.

Zella Ring on Rope: A spectator ties the ends of a length of rope together. The performer then passes a borrowed ring onto...

Tricks with Watches by Samuel Berland

Tricks, sleights, and routines with watches.

Paul Fleming wrote:

No one who has seen Gus Fowler's vaudeville act with timepieces will doubt that magic with watches can be both interesting and mystifying. We cannot guarantee that Tricks with Watches will enable its readers to duplicate the financial and artistic success won by Mr. Fowler, but it will acquaint them with sleights and tricks which they will almost certainly be tempted to introduce into their programs.

Of the four chapters into which Mr. Berland divides his book, Chapter I is devoted to sleights with watches; Chapter 2, to complete tricks...

"For some thirty years, Paul Curry has been inventing tricks and sleights of such beautiful simplicity that they have become standard items in the repertoire of close-up performers of magic throughout the world."
