The Eighth Wonder by Albert Forrest
This hard-to-find title contains a wealth of dealer-quality club and stage magic, mentalism, and more for you to perform and enjoy. Here's a book from 1935 that, until now, has been out of print and jealously hoarded by collectors. It's filled with entertaining magic for close-up, club and stage. Clearly explained and well-illustrated, this goldmine of magic contains effects that will entertain as well today, as they did back when this book was originally released.

Divided into chapters, you'll find clever magic themed for Stage and Club, Comedy, Mentalism, and Card Effects. And only in this revised edition do you receive additional, updated material, including two added chapters, revised illustrations, and more. And, for the first time ever, you'll get to know more about the background and life of this mysterious author.
