MINT 1973 - 1974 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 - 1972 are already available. After releasing M.I.N.T III through VI, and Annotated M.I.N.T 1963, 64, 65, 66, 67, and 68, then 1969-1972, the articles in this volume again depart. It includes the years 1973-1974 - comprised of fewer articles but longer and more in-depth. As Wesley progressed toward completing the full run of Marlo In New Tops material, plus his extensive annotations, observations, and Bonus material, he wanted to be fair to Marlo fans, and to his readers. This is the second installment in the Annotated M.I.N.T series that includes a multi-year span of articles. These articles provide numerous innovative and ground-breaking concepts, sleights, plots, 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 be better understood and in far wider use.

Wesley James has already completed the task of fulfilling Ed Marlo's expressed wishes with M.I.N.T III through VI, keeping Eddie's material available "for the guys." Now, he brings his insights to Ed Marlo's earlier New Tops articles. If you truly want to understand, benefit from, and incorporate Ed Marlo's material as, till now, only those who knew him well can, these are books you will want to own and will treasure for years to come.

If you truly want to incorporate Marlo's material in your repertoire, you will need to own and study the material as Wesley has. Wesley has greatly reduced your task. 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, often enlightening.

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 years of extensive performance experience. Among Wesley's creations are full routines inspired by Marlo techniques, built on Marlo foundations, plus new routines - many for the first time in any source.

If you're devoted to card magic, you need to own these volumes. 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 Annotated M.I.N.T. 1963 through 1972, 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 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 $60 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.
