MINT 1965 Annotated by Edward Marlo & Wesley James

The Annotated M.I.N.T. series continues. Thanks to Ed Marlo and Wesley James, M.I.N.T III, IV, V, VI, and Annotated M.I.N.T. 1963 and 1964 are already available. The release of this volume takes another step toward the availability of the entire run of Marlo In New Tops material with Wesley's extensive annotations, and his supplemental and bonus material. The material in this volume is truly extraordinary. This volume includes 11 Marlo articles plus 25 Wesley James contributions. Two of Ed's finest New Tops contributions - the "Olram Subtlety" and "Marlo's Aces" - appeared in 1965. Additionally, "A Problem Posed" and "As an Opener" greatly expanded the options for the "Spectator Cuts The Aces" plot, and "Cards and Coins" and "Impromptu Cards and Coins" moved the fraternity closer to an ideal solution. Marlo's two articles on the "Incomplete Faro" (1/65 and 2/65) firmly established the powerful technique in the arsenal of card workers. In Marlo's 1965 material, you will find innovative and ground-breaking plots, sleights, and subtleties, that have been largely unavailable since the run of the New Tops ended, notwithstanding the flat text of L & L's MINT I and II. If those books had been sufficient, Ed's material would already be far better understood and in wider use. Thus, after completing the task of fulfilling Ed Marlo's expressed wishes with M.I.N.T III - VI, keeping Eddie's material available "for the guys," now, Wesley brings his insights to Ed Marlo's earlier New Tops articles.

If you truly want to understand, benefit from, and incorporate Marlo's material as only those who knew him well can, these are books you will want to own and will treasure for years to come. In tribute to Ed, Wesley wanted these volumes to offer much more, hence his annotations, clarifications, corrections - both logical and grammatic - plus Wesley's insightful personal Notes. Many of those Notes are complimentary, some critical, but all are informative.

As Wesley has often stated, "One can't perform card magic without a tip of the hat to Ed Marlo." Wesley's friend of more than 25 years, Ed Marlo inspired a wealth of material that Wesley developed, massaged, enhanced and adapted through his extensive performance experience. Among Wesley's creations are full routines inspired by Marlo techniques, built on Marlo foundations, and routines - many for the first time in any source.

If you're devoted to card magic, you need to own these volumes and study them closely. The combination of clarified Marlo material, Wesley's Notes, and the original Wesley James routines create and should continue to enhance Marlo's legacy for those that absorb them, and students of Wesley James material will want to explore his material in depth.

If you already own MINT III through VI, and M.I.N.T. 1963 and 1964 Annotated, you'll now be able to expand your file of Marlo In New Tops with more than flat text. At the same time, you'll add to your collection of Wesley James' creations, and benefit from his detailed descriptions, analysis, and historical perspective. Rarely have volumes offered so much to those who are serious about their card magic. Some of what you'll read is easy while some is more technically challenging, but it's all been made practical so you can add it to your repertoire.

The entire collection, plus corrected illustrations, and Wesley plentiful added Notes and bonus material are all in this volume. The ebook price is just $40 and, as you'll see from the Table of Contents below, you'll want to learn all it offers.

Don't wait to be blown away by this mix of older Marlo material and Wesley's insightful Notes and cutting-edge creations. It's all here for you now.
