(c. 1986) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Sixth of the Dr. Albo Books in a strictly limited edition.

Details: This is one of the largest volumes (416 pages) of the Classic Magic series of which 76 pages are in full color. Chapter one begins with flower magic including the famous Okito Redmon Square Circle flower production and various spring Botanias. “Fastest Flower Vanish” by Marshall vanishes the flowers and decorative pot instantly and without cover.

“Silks and Flags” is next describes a number of standard classics as well as some more obscure tricks. “Drum Head Tube”, “Silk Pedestal”, “Genie Tube”, “Handkerchief (Jap) Box”, “Silk Cabby”, and the “Fall Away Box” are just a few of standard classic that are covered. Also included is the “Mignon Production” by Okito and number of other effects made famous through the fine FG Thayer company such as “Cut and Restored Necktie” box and the “Oriental Tubes of Mystery.”

Chapter 3 covers “Bottles” and covers the standards made famous by P&L, Abbott’s, Thayer and many others. The Haenchen “Wine Box” is a die box variation with a cleverly built glass, bottle, and box to achieve the effect. “Bewildering Bottles” by Himber is a passe passe bottles variation with several unexpected twists. “Lamps and Radios” includes various vanishes and productions of lamps and radios which includes different types and methods. “Guns and Rifles” covers various effects including firearms used to vanish silks or make items appear. “Shooting through a Woman”

Chapter 6 on “Covers, Tubes and Vases” includes some utility covers that make items appear, change, or vanish in quick order. “Transposition of Balls” uses spring balls and gimmicked covers to achieve the magic. “Ball Tube” involves the use of a clever gimmick to facilitate the vanish of a single ball from the bottom of a clear tube. This section also covers a variety of special vases including the “Coffee Vase”, “Liquid to Silks”, and “Glass of Liquid to Wine Glass.” “Rings” is the subject of chapter 7. “Ring on Wand” is a UF Grant invention which utilizes a gimmicked cabinet to allow the ring to appear on the wand. A number of other similar effects using different principles including Schlunegger’s “Rod, Ring, and Cabinet.”

Chapter 8, “Production Items”, covers magical items to be used in conjunction with another effect such as a production box. Bird cages that expand, Clocks that nest, flags, and lamps are just a few of type that are covered. Chapter 9 is an extensive 70 page chapter on “Livestock” apparatus although many of the contraptions would work equally well on types of loads. Many classics are covered here including many manufactured and made famous by Thayer’s artistic finishes. “Night Club Dove Production”, “Haunted Chinese Bird Chest Transposition”, and “L & W Production Box” are just a few of these. Even more contemporary apparatus is covered such as Riedel’s “Mandarin Production Box” and the “Rabbit Box” by Townhouse.

‘Final Addition” is a collection of miscellaneous effects that could have appeared in previous volumes under a more descriptive category but were likely discovered too late in the game. “Baffo Box” is a ring in orange trick made by Thayer. “Appearing Block” is a cleverly made with some distinct improvements over the basic shell method. “Triple Cage Canister” is where 3 separate bird cages are produced from an apparently empty canister. “Marvellous Picture Frame” is the appearance of borrowed watches, ring, and plate which is followed by visible plate restoration. “Triple Die Box” is a variation on the classic by Will Goldston. This section ends with a historical discussion on gimmicked coins. Next follows one of the most extensive color sections of all the volumes which is nearly double that of Volume 5.
