Zaw Shinn
Balancing by Zaw Shinn

Balance small objects on the edge of a card. The gimmick is easy to make but finicky to use. Also, watch your angles. Great for one-on-one or video shots but not so great with multiple spectators. The gimmick does not involve a thread, reel, or magnets.

(Benny) Ben Harris
TacTics by (Benny) Ben Harris

2002 and a small lecture tour. Harris needed an oddity that would contrast his card work. Some visual and aural distraction. TacTics was the answer. 150 units were assembled, fingers burned, and instructions written. The item was quite popular and did end up in an issue of Genii. Here is the original manuscript, re-edited and with clear photos. Ideas with color-changes, sound-based illusion and the "Milk Pitcher" application allowing you to vanish tictacs, half a container at a time, till they're ALL GONE!

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.

Ruhko Varen
Wait by Ruhko Varen

[Note that the English on this video is pretty bad. However, everything is also explained visually and you should have no problem to make the gimmick and to see how everything works together.]

The effect is straight forward. Show a few tictacs on your hand and an empty tictacs box. Slam the container on your hand and make all tictacs jump into the container. Your hand is empty and the container filled with tictacs. If somebody would have counted the number of tictacs in the container is exactly the same as there were on the hand. You can handout the container with the tictacs for inspection or even as a gift.

Will Goldston
Annual of Magic 1915-16 by Will Goldston

This is the last book in the 'Magician Annual' series of Goldston. It carries a slightly different title, 'Annual of Magic' instead of 'Magician Annual', but otherwise is kept in the very same style and type of contents as all the other books in this series. Beside tricks, illusions and patter, you will find a lot about magicians of this era. For example the "Who's Who and Why" is an interesting article.

Magician Annual 1907-8 by Will Goldston

This was the first Magician Annual Will Goldston compiled and edited. It covers quite some ground. From juggling and optical illusions, to ventriloquism and palmistry. Of course you will find also magic illusions, tricks and patter. And if you want to read a little bit about hoop rolling, you can, too. These Magician Annuals are real fun to read. They are a great window into the past.

Magician Annual 1909-10 by Will Goldston

This book describes quite a number of card tricks and has a wonderful account of some of Buatier de Kolta's illusions, for example his famous "de Kolta Chair". An interesting story evolves around the cartoon on page 62, which depicts a famous magician's wife in a not very favorable light. Goldston released later a new edition which had this cartoon removed. Goldston also tried to buy back all the first editions but was not quite successful.

William John Hilliar
Modern Magicians Hand Book by William John Hilliar

What an excellent book. The quality of the material is outstanding. What makes this book particularly rare is a chapter on juggling and how to fake great juggle skills. I have yet to see another book on magic with such an extensive chapter on juggling. You will also find the obligatory chapter on shadowgraphy, a good write up of black art, and large sections on cards, coins, and tricks with many other props. You will find billiard ball manipulation as well as stage tricks with large apparatus.

Louis Nikola
Magical Masterpieces by Louis Nikola

The most famous invention of Nikola is his card system, which is described in The Nikola Card System and in an abbreviated version in Encyclopedia of Card Tricks. Cards are not the only area Nikola excelled in.

From the inside cover: Magical Masterpieces is no mere fanciful title. It is an apt description of a selection from the accumulated repertoire of a practical magician whose outstanding characteristic is the painstaking perfection and stamp of individuality of all his productions. It is safe to say that if a new book of magic provides only one workable and suitable addition to the reader's store it is a sound investment. The magician...

Ulysses Frederick Grant
Secrets by Ulysses Frederick Grant

The title "Secrets - Malini, Leipzig, Vernon, Jarrow, ..." suggests a lot, but these are merely the interpretations and versions of U. F. Grant to some of the classics of Malini, Leipzig, Vernon, Jarrow and others. Grant uses only one page to describe each effect and method. This book is therefore to some degree a disappointment. Nevertheless I think it is a cheap way to learn the plots and a method to several of the greatest tricks of all time. Just don't expect very detailed descriptions. Grant displays in this book an arrogant writing style with comments like 'This is good' or "The best method" or "Fools...

Hocus Pocus Junior by unknown

This book includes detailed work on the "Cups and Balls," and the first version of the "Stack of Pence" (i.e., "Stack of Quarters"). It is probably the first English book written from the viewpoint of a performing magician. Any serious magician should read this book, not to learn a lot of new tricks, but to realize how much has been known for a long time. This book is part of our history. I understand that $60 or more for a paper reprint is hard to justify, but now for a few bucks there should be no excuse to not read this wonderful little treasure.

John Scarne shows in this ebook how magic that is completely mystifying to the spectator can be as simple as ABC for the performer. From his own immense repertoire of tricks and from the specialities of other great magicians, he has selected the master-deceptions, the best tricks that can be done without skill, training, or special equipment - if you know the secret.

Rufus Steele
Paul Rosini's Magical Gems by Rufus Steele

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...
