More Magical Experiments: Collected Magic Series Volume 5 by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the Preamble:

The first volume of this never-to-be-too-much-praised series of pragmatical, pneumatical and windy problems I published for love; the second for fame, the third for a wager, the fourth from habit and this present one which you now hold in your much too shaky hands, for money.

Alas, it is so with all enthusiasm and desire: something fades. But, I promise you, this is not the last you will hear of me. Be frolic then, and delve into and dig out from herein the information you so much desire; but I pray that you may not discover from whom I borrow my preliminary thunder. ...

Collected Magic Series Volume 6 by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the introduction:

Remember, I beg of you, as you read this book, that one man’s meat is another man’s poison, and have hope within you, that you may discover herein the very item your frousty programme lacks. Believe me, the age of miracles has not ceased.

And you, critics, reviewers and turnip-munchers, bestir your jaded parrots in praise of this book, but whether you boom it or burst it, consider also this: that all the secret subtleties, the cute little, quaint little moves, the tricks of affectation and of style, all the glory and delight of accidental discovery,...

Collected Magic Series Volume 8 by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the introduction:

No, my ever so constant and indefatigable readers, this book contains no marvels, but merely the practical effects of men who conjure, men who think and men who achieve, in contradistinction to the dreamers who dream.

I said just now that there was nothing startling in this book; but there is some very good Magic. The "Snowman" takes my fancy. True, it makes use of plaguey and never-sufficiently-damned tubes. The peculiar stringing of a pack of cards which you will find on page - (How can I tell on which page it will eventually appear!) is alone worth the...

Moments of Mystery by Percy Naldrett

Excerpt from the foreword:

The section contributed by Mr. H. C. MOLE, an enthusiastic amateur of Aintree, Liverpool, is a complete programme in itself, being a practical explanation of an illustrated Lecture delivered by Mr. Mole before the Northern Magical Society at Liverpool, in October, 1914. The programme is unique in that it consists of acceptable items not requiring executive skill or manipulative practice.

My own section consists of various useful ideas and suggestions of such a variety calculated to interest every performer whether amateur or professional.
