Lewis Ganson
Routined Manipulation Part 1 by Lewis Ganson

This in combination with Routined Manipulation Part Two and Routined Manipulation Finale is one of the best magic books ever published. Each routine is clearly explained mostly with photos and some illustrations. Many classic effects are described in detail. And the essay "Presentation of Manipulation" is a must read for any magician. It includes presentation, dress and appearance, care of the hands, make up, stage setting, music, personality, lighting, a.s.o.

Paul Fleming wrote:

Lewis Ganson
Routined Manipulation Part 2 by Lewis Ganson

This is the second part of the masterfully written classic work on magic. Together with Routined Manipulation Part One and Routined Manipulation Finale it is an excellent work on sleight-of-hand magic. The effects taught are suitable from stage and parlor to intimate settings of close-up magic.

This volume has a large section on billiard ball manipulation. Barrows Mussey calls it 'the best thing in print on the subject'. And Al Koran's Blindfold Card Act is a beauty on its own.

Paul Fleming wrote:

This book is a sequel to Mr. Ganson's Routined Manipulation (examined in our Review No. 153), and, like its predecessor, covers a wider range of conjuring than one might expect to find...

David Devant
Lessons in Conjuring by David Devant

This is an obscure but extremely fine lesson in conjuring. It is true that it was written as an introduction for the neophyte, but it is a gem of a book of great value to absolutely anyone regardless of their experience.

The text is very modest - no 'latest novelty' or 'top secret'. Just solid sensible counsel about standard, albeit classic, items from Devant's repertoire. Devant is not simply saying what you might want to hear, he is telling you what he has found to be important. He is treating you the way he would treat a private student. For a book this is quite unusual. Most authors hold...

J. C. Wagner
Glass Through Bar by J. C. Wagner

Glass through table is a classic of magic that is at least a hundred years old. You can even find it described in children magic books. The key to this effect is misdirection which requires a good amount of showmanship and spectator handling. Otherwise it is pure simplicity. With the tips and presentation by J.C. Wagner you will turn this classic into a modern and entertaining miracle.

Verrall Wass
Magically Yours by Verrall Wass

Practical effects with cards, flowers and silks. Here is Verrall Wass in his own words about the motivation of this book:

Modern magicians are not magi, yet some wizards wish to divide conjuring into innumerable religions and subdivide each religion into as many sects. The doing of tricks for them becomes a ritual. To one, he who does not use Professor Shuffle's (the "Professor" is still with us) double-trouble riffle is a heretic. To another, disciple of The Great Marmagic (the "Greats" are still with us too), he who does not employ Marmagic's boil-and-bubble pass, aptly named because the...

Joe Stuthard
Stooging Around by Joe Stuthard

From the introduction:

By daring to write a booklet on the subject of stooges, I realize that I am liable to cause a great deal of heated discussion among magicians all over the world. No magician deplores the use of stooges more than one who has never used them! That same magician will, nevertheless, often rely upon the use of a faked deck of cards or, if he is an illusionist, he will proudly point to the speed with which his assistants make use of the trap in the stage. What is the difference between the use of such subterfuges and the use of an accomplice or stooge? If the same effect...

Devin Knight
Production from Any Ungimmicked Magazine by Devin Knight

Most productions are usually from some kind of suspicious looking box that screams magic prop. This is the old-fashion way, time to step into modern times and do away with fake looking boxes that look like something only a magician would have.

With this method, the performer enters with an everyday magazine, such as People magazine. It is held carelessly in his right hand. He flips the pages showing it is an unprepared copy of Time, People or any other publication.

In truth, it IS absolutely unprepared! He tears off the cover and shows it on both sides using just his left hand. He then...

Ulysses Frederick Grant
Grant in the Tarbell Magic Course by Ulysses Frederick Grant

U. F. Grant contributed some of his best material to the Tarbell Course in magic. Most of this material is unique to the Tarbell Course and does not appear elsewhere. Before Grant died, he compiled a manuscript containing all of the material he contributed. It ranges from close up to stage illusions. A lot of magicians don't have the original Tarbell Course, so here is your chance to get all of the tricks he created and contributed in one place. Fully illustrated and one of the best buys in magic. This is stuff you will use and do and as Harlan Tarbell said, some of the best magic in his course.

One of the best tricks that Grant created was Ghost...

Al Baker's Book by Al Baker

From the introduction:

Showing a trick is comparatively easy to putting it clearly in print, and I want to thank Anneman for his judicious use of the blue pencil, finding spots where I could write less and tell more, and in general, being a marvelous deleter and paraphraser.

To John Northern Hilliard, whom I consider the greatest writer on Magic as an Art, I want to extend my sincere thanks for the encouragement that caused me to start and finally finish my maiden effort, to wit: Al Baker's Book.

Al Baker
Al Baker's Second Book by Al Baker

From the introduction:

In presenting my "second" book to the magical fraternity I have kept in mind the old saw, "Brevity is the soul, not only of wit, but applies to many magical tricks".

I have tried to make the text brief and, by giving plenty of illustrations, cut down on too much solid type. I give no patter as I feel that every entertainer should be himself and develop a style of his own.

Fred Keating rose to stardom. "The Bird Cage", "Sympathetic Silks" and "Card in the Cigarette" were marvellous in his hands; others copied, but Keating's name still lives. "Be a magician, not...
