The Magigram ran for around twenty-seven years and started with the first proper issue in September 1966 and ended in February 1995, in total more than 22,000 pages. Almost every well-known magician from those years made some form of contribution to the magazine including Billy McComb who had an inspiring regular column. The magazine started life as a vehicle for advertisements for the Supreme Magic Company but soon developed into a proper magazine that many magicians took out on subscription. Every branch of magic from close up to illusions was covered and it was one of the most popular UK magic magazines ever.
Each volume is a separate PDF, with issue bookmarks, and everything is full-text searchable.
I never read the Magicgram when it was in print. I had no idea what I was missing. But now that I have the first five volumes, I can honestly say that it is a gold mine and will get the entire run. I paid fifteen dollars for the first five volume (three dollars each) and I have found items worth ten times that price in just the first volume alone.
I imagine that by the time I finish buying and reading all 27 volumes I will have more than I could ever use in a lifetime (which I do anyway!). Honestly, if you don't find this pays for itself ten times over, you are either not a serious magician or you have a serious case of anhedonia!!
