Albo 08 – Classic Magic Supplement by Robert J. Albo

(c. 1986,1989) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

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

Details: The supplement volumes vary from all the rest of set in that it is a bind in which inserts were to be inserted. There we only the following inserts ever produced: “The Okito Timeline”, “ Forcing Books and Book Tests”, and the “F.G. Thayer” supplement. Each is fairly short ranging from 12-20 pages and including black and white photographs.

It seems that Albo gave up on the 3 hole binder inserts quickly, in favor of, 2 separately bound softcover supplements. There is a maroon colored cover volume called simply “Magic Supplement” on the outside cover. This book is 108 pages and has errata pages for all the preceding volumes. There is also the “Conradi Program” section which describes the 15 minute water and fire bowls act. There are also a number of magic apparatus entries not previously included in other volumes such as alarm clock vanish and reproduction, Holmes production tube, and many others. There is also 16 pages of full color photographs. Total pages are 108.

There was also produced a gray covered supplement “Classic Magic Supplement II” which is 167 pages. This edition cover the “Blue Phantom”, “Doc Nixon Checker Cabinet”, “Thayer Flower Production”, “Holmes Production Clocks”, and includes a modest 8 page color section.
