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

Details: While this book does serve as an index to the first 7 volumes of the series, it also has quite a bit new content as well. It starts with a section on the Magic of Jon Martin which includes, some articles as well as some in depth coverage of the rapping hand. “Parasols and Canes” is the next section, which discusses favorites mutilated parasol and the dancing cane. “Micro Magic” is a discussion on various small creations from masters such as Eddy Taytelbaum. “Dizzy Domino’s”, ”The Mummy”, “Figures of Foo”, and “Taytelbomb” are just a few of them. The chapter on illusions focuses mostly of stage size apparatus of Thayer and a few other makers. “Odd and Ends” is another grab bag of tricks which includes Haenchen’s “Haunted Hut of Madagaskia”, Peerless Block Mystery, Brema Rice Bowls and more. The color section has 32 pages including magician letterheads and the apparatus and illusions feature in the preceding sections.
