Stanley Collins
Deceptive Conceptions in Magic by Stanley Collins

From the Foreword:

Written entirely during my service in the Army and the major part of it whilst under shellfire at Ypres and on the Somme, this book was ready for the press save the sketches, early in 1919.

Anticipating almost immediate demobilisation, I determined to post to my home the manuscript that had been such a labour of love to me, with some small magical apparatus that had accompanied me during the campaign. I am still awaiting the arrival of that parcel.

Considerably lightened by the possession of an exceptional memory, my task of re-writing is now finished and I confidently...

Alexander de Cova
California Lecture 2006 by Alexander de Cova

From the introduction:

You will find that most of my mterial is suitable for the stand-up performer. This is due to the fact that in Europe there aren't too many opportunities to work restaurants, bars and other close-up situations. We have to deal with small stand-up shows, birthday parties, wedding parties, smaller theatres and cabarets, and the like. Naturally, if you want to survive as a performer, you will have to adapt to this situation and develop suitable material. Above all, the material must be direct and to the point, because the European audiences generally don't have too much...

Gregg Webb
Webb Mania by Gregg Webb

From the Foreword:

Magic is changing and a lot of the reason for this is that people's attention spans are shorter because of the pace of life today and more distractions.

We don't have the luxury of people dying for entertainment. There is too much entertainment and to compete, we have to get to the point quicker.

If you look at my magic a certain way, it is a direct result of chipping away at long tricks trying to distill them down.

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

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...

Al Baker
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.

Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster
Some More Exquisite Conjuring by Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster

From the Foreword:

When publishing my first book in the English language, Exquisite Conjuring, I was led by the thoughts, that perhaps, after having edited over 30 books about Magic in German, it may be an interesting experiment to see, what the English speaking fraternity would have to say, if I would publish a book in the English language and if the praise, I received from all sides as an author of books on Magic since these last 20 years and more, would really warrant such a new venture!

Well, I must say, that my expectations have not only been realised, but they have in fact been surpassed by far in...

Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster
Exquisite Conjuring by Friedrich W. Conradi-Horster

Conradi was the largest manufacturer of magic apparatus in Germany in the early 20th century. He wrote and published several major magic books and his magazine Zauberspiegel (Magic Mirror) predates Mahatma, the first American magic magazine. We should not forget that around 1900 Germany was dominating the magic market. Some of the largest magic retailers in the US, such as Roterberg, built their entire business on importing goods from various German manufacturers, such as Conrad-Horster, and then reselling them in the US. Roterberg's most successful book New Era Card Tricks was little more than a translation of effects taken from various...
