The Modern Blindfold Street Drive

Robert A. Nelson & B. W. McCarron

The Modern Blindfold Street Drive by Robert A. Nelson & B. W. McCarronNot just an effect, it's an event. Box office records attest the tremendous value of this sensational publicity stunt. The Nelson Enterprises were the first to realize the possibilities of a stunt of this kind in conjunction with mental acts, and were the first to utilize it. The Blindfold Street Drive actually attracts thousands of people to witness the performer drive the car through the streets, while handicapped by the lack of normal vision. We know of no other stunt, or idea that could be placed into operation that is sure to attract so much favorable comment, and to impress upon the residents...

The Secrets of Doctor "A"

Robert A. Nelson

The Secrets of Doctor "A" by Robert A. Nelson"Dr. A" was a real-life figure, having devoted 33 years of his life as a very successful office reader and clairvoyant. He gave Robert Nelson full permission to publish his unique secrets, however he requested that he remain anonymous.

He devised, created and used what Nelson regarded as one of the finest - if not the finest - methods of giving private readings and (apparently) reading the minds of others.

The system described is so subtle and versatile that Dr. "A" and Nelson both were able to give thought-staggering readings and demonstrations under the most adverse of conditions, whether...
