Ken de Courcy
After Dinner Technique by Ken de Courcy

From the preface:

This book first appeared in 1953 in serial form in Goodliffe's ABRACADABRA. At the time it was the first treatise to be published on the subject and many people were kind enough to say it helped them overcome the difficulties always found in after-dinner shows.

All the information it contained was learned by experience as it was a field in which I specialised. And, although it was written nearly thirty years ago, almost nothing has changed; which is surprising when you consider the sweeping changes in other spheres of entertainment.

Vick Lawston
House of a Thousand Mysteries by Vick Lawston
"It is a great, great read, especially your recounting of how Mr. Lawstone substituted workshop sheets for the actual apparatus." - Christopher Kenworthey
Many of you remember Vick Lawston's House of a Thousand Mysteries catalog. Most baby boomers that became magicians got their start from his catalog. They remember his slogan, "When you think of tricks, remember Vick's."

Inside his catalog he included three free tricks that you could try on your friends. These were decent tricks and were some of the first tricks I ever did. They have been re-written and included in this release. His...

Carl Martell
The Modern Manipulator by Carl Martell

This, originally written in 1910, juggling and magic book is (for the most part) still very relevant. Besides the insights you will gain about juggling and magic in the late 1800s, you will also learn about forgotten routines that you can use to enrich your repertoire with and that would still play very well in your act today. You will get the original script as written by Carl Martell. It is an exciting read for jugglers, variety performers; and sleight of hand, close-up, and stage magicians alike. You will read about the workings behind some long-forgotten vaudeville juggling stunts, magic...

Brick Tilley
Vanishing Doll by Brick Tilley

Also known as "Ne Plus Ultra" and "Bonus Genus", this was a favorite pocket trick at the turn of the century. Even Houdini was known to have fashioned a crude version of this out of a scrap of wood. Modern day toy companies create small dolls that make handcrafted ones a thing of the past. We located an ideal version at a local 99¢ store, it's a small figurine of a cherub playing on a flute.

EFFECT: A small doll is covered with a cloth. The cloth has a hole in the center, out of it protrudes the doll's head. The head is allowed to drop into the folds of the cloth. Immediately the cloth is shaken...

Arthur Leroy
Outline of Mystery by Arthur Leroy

Here are a devil's dozen effects, moves and miracles for the semi-professional that, for the most part, don't rely on external gimmicks. It's one of those rare books that, the more you read it, the more you'll appreciate it. Not written for the faint of heart. If you're after bold, professional magic, this is the book for you. (And yes, the title is a pun on H. G. Well's Outline of History. Kudos if you caught that.)

You'll find effects for close-up, platform and stage. The details are provided as if you were a trusted confidante of the author.

The Leaf by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Magic is mostly performed with man-made products - cards, coins, silks, ropes, ... Why not perform magic with items nature provides? This is even more powerful, because there is inherently no suspicion of gimmicked objects. Ralf has created a stunning miracle that is easy to perform during a stroll in the woods, or during a garden party, or other places where plants are in reach. All you need is access to leaves growing on a tree or a shrub and a pen to sign a leaf.

Effect: You and your spectator collect a couple of leaves. The spectator tears one in half, and signs it. Miraculously the torn...

Tommy Windsor
Street Faker Act by Tommy Windsor

Here's a great change of pace routine for the magician -- an act that parodies the medicine pitchman. Audiences love it ... and you will, too.

The author includes his exact routine, including every bit of the hilarious patter and bits of business that made Tommy's act a laugh riot on stages from coast to coast. Not burlesque, but a clean comedy "pitch" act that can be performed in churches and schools as well as lodges and clubs. Full of laughs, but not a "blue" gag in the lot. A riot of fun but contains nothing to offend anyone.

You sell and demonstrate "Dr. Presto's Magical Medicines...

Orbital by Trevor Lewis

You place a prediction in view. A spectator names any number between 1 and 50. You show a deck of cards and (without cutting or any moves) you count to that number. That card matches the prediction! Easy to do. No rough and smooth. [Note: These are merely the instructions that came with the prepared deck. You will not receive any cards. But it is easy to make up your own from a couple of duplicate cards.]
