David Devant
Tricks For Everyone by David Devant

Clever conjuring with common objects. Illustrated with 134 photographs.

From the introduction:

The following chapters will be found to be practical lessons in conjuring. Many people have the erroneous idea that if they know how a trick is done they are quite capable of presenting it to an audience. I have always found that a very little experience will show such persons that the mere knowledge of the secret of a trick is not of much value to a beginner unless it is accompanied by some simple instructions showing him the best way of using his knowledge. Therefore, I shall not merely give...

J. G. Thompson Jr.
Top Secrets of Magic 3 by J. G. Thompson Jr.

From the introduction by Martin Gardner:

With this distinguished background it is little wonder that his latest series of books, Top Secrets of Magic, of which this is the third, is a veritable treasure trove of material, clearly and simply explained, and displaying a remarkable knowledge of what has been done and is being done today in every branch of conjuring. The large clear photographs make the text delightfully easy to follow.

J. G. Thompson Jr.
Top Secrets of Magic 2 by J. G. Thompson Jr.

From the introduction by Milbourne Christopher:

I first heard of Jim Thompson in the pages of Ted Annemann's Jinx. Then his main interest was mental magic. I have never seen him perform but I have seen many magicians use the tricks he has put into print. I always visualize him as a mild mannered man who would make an excellent beacon in a blackout. See his "Moonlight Madness," page 301 in Annemann's Practical Mental Effects, or page 265 in My Best.

This current volume of "Top Secrets" is the second in a planned trilogy. You have most of the objects needed for the feats described. If something special is required, Jim will tell you how to make it, or where to buy it....

J. G. Thompson Jr.
Top Secrets of Magic 1 by J. G. Thompson Jr.

What a wonderful book on sleight of hand magic with small objects this is - profusely illustrated with more than 200 photos, by a recognized inventor, author, and reviewer of magic.

From the introduction by Blackstone:

But, there has always been a dearth of practical routines, probably due to the difficulty encountered by most magicians in linking tricks into a smoothly flowing series of mysteries and, perhaps, because of some innate trait of laziness found in most of us. That is why I am so impressed and pleased with the text of Jim’s book. It truly helps to fill an unfortunate gap in magical...

Dave Arch
Puzzling Placemats by Dave Arch

The next time you perform at or host a dinner (Thanksgiving?) consider making copies of these three different placemats - setting them out on the tables for people to play with during the dinner or prior to your show. The magic works for them, and they won't even be sure how it worked! They'll take the placemats with them to show their friends. While you're at it, why not put your contact information on the back? Includes a Bermuda Triangle Mystery based on a Jim Steinmeyer idea and a Terri Rogers' concept of using patterned borders for a fun pencil race. Designed by a professional graphic artist, these...

Peter Warlock
Plans For Deception by Peter Warlock

From the Foreword:

The welcome accorded to Design for Magic has given me the necessary encouragement to present this present volume. I hope that among the score of original ideas and effects, there may be something of use for every type of magician. Some of the effects rely in part upon mechanism for their accomplishment. My views on mechanism in Magic agree with those well expressed by John Mulholland, who a few years ago wrote the following in The Sphinx.

"When mechanics are used in Magic, they must be so designed and constructed that they are infallible. When a trick depends on mechanism and the mechanism fails...

Devin Knight
The Hustle by Devin Knight

A great little trick/bet you can learn in just a few minutes and you are always ready to stump someone. The effect can be done with cards, matches or coins. The twelve objects are laid out in three horizontal rows. The object of the game is that the person left with the last item to pick up loses the game. You only play this game with one person at a time. The rules are simple. The player can only take from one row at a time. Take as many as you wish from either the first, second or third row, but you cannot pick from different rows until your next turn. Either you or the spectator can start...

Okito
Quality Magic by Okito

From the Foreword:

This is my first book on Magic, and it will probably be my last, because its contents are the result of my life’s work.

All the sleights and tricks explained in this book have been worked by me; therefore I know they are practical. One often hears of tricks which seem to be very good theoretically, but which turn out to be anything but good when one tests them by a private rehearsal.

Joe Berg
Here's New Magic by Joe Berg

Seven years in the making! Another great book by the co-author of Here's Magic.

Magician-dealer Joe Berg reveals 23 secrets of magic that, prior to the release of this book, had never before been divulged. With the assistance of Martin Gardner, Berg reveals his best, tested tricks and routines that magicians of every ilk will put to immediate use.

Featuring killer effects such as the "Adhesive Tape Thumb-Tie" that, unlike a $25 manuscript that uses red electrician's tape, works with any tape and uses no external gimmicks. Or how about "The Magical Hatchery" — a cute effect that's a hit for club workers.

The format follows Gregg's established style of illustrations and hand-lettered text. The material is classic Gregg Webb.

From the introduction:

People always ask me, "Where do you get those wacky ideas?". I'm finally going to reveal just where they do come from. It turns out that there is a whole town where future magic is invented. They are way ahead of us. It is called Magicville and it exists in a parallel dimension as it were. And it just so happens, I invented a phone with which I can call Magicville directly! It is a direct line to Magicville! In Chapter 1 I'll show and tell how...

Stanley Collins
Original Magical Creations by Stanley Collins

From the Foreword:

Magicians who are seeking that evanescent "something new" which, like the Family Ghost, is very often talked about but seldom seen, will, I venture to prophesy, find "something new" in Original Magical Creations.

In penning this volume my aim has been twofold. In the first place, I have set out to describe in detail the methods by which certain experiments originated by myself are performed, and secondly my endeavour has been to teach how to perform them, which is a totally different proposition.

To carry out this plan in its entirety, the inclusion of the covering...

This is an excellent cross-section of some of Karl Norman's best routines.

From the introduction:

During a very exclusive lecture for about one hundred magicians Karl demonstrated the impact and the value of his routines. That day he was nearly 75 years old and at about the same time, David Copperfield received standing ovations at his opening performance in the Deutsche Theater in München, only a few miles away from that place Karl received standing ovations for his commercial and entertaining close-up magic.

Roy Eidem
Santa's Magical Lump of Coal by Roy Eidem

A magic wand disappears and re-appears. Then suddenly a lump of coal magically appears. The lump of coal disappears and re-appears three times and on the third complete disappearance it jumps into the pocket. Then the lump of coal multiplies into two lumps of coal, then it multiplies into three lumps of coal. To simplify spectator observation, two lumps of coal are removed and the last lump of coal is squeezed tightly in the hand causing the coal to change "under pressure" into a diamond which is given to the lady as a gift.

Manual of Show Stunts by Hamilton Floyd

Stunts of the stage and big top from starting to starring.

An ideal lesson and source book for obtaining information on acquiring show skills. Learn them and perform at fairs, traveling circuses, rodeos, "in one" before the curtain at magic shows, on cruise ships, or on TV. Let's face it. Audiences love show stunts, such as juggling, balance feats, acrobatic demonstrations, and the like. They appreciate the level of skill and dedication that these artists possess.

Because these acts are somewhat of a novelty, they fit in well with other entertainments, making an extravaganza that is a...
