The Sign of Exceptional Magic by Charles Thorton Jordan

This periodical was released by Ted Annemann. The plan was to publish some 350 original tricks by Charles T. Jordan that Jordan had released earlier either as single tricks or in booklets. Here is Annemann in his own words:

With this issue starts a series of magical secrets conceived by that genius of subtle sorcery, Mr. Charles T. Jordan. In years to come, the completed set will prove to be a bonanza of information second to none in the annals of magical literature. Its hundreds of practical-plus conceptions will ever be turned to, and the time will never come when a study of its pages will not disclose inspirational ideas to a practical performer.

And so, with an eulogy which at its best could be only half the deserved praise, I present to you the Charles T. Jordan Series of Magical Effects.

However, the project ended abruptly after issue 6 and 39 published tricks.
