Details: They were the work of passion, these three volumes, and they were beautiful. They revealed the finest of magic sifted from a lifetime of experience. They were unique. Typewritten by the recipient of the A.M.A. Literary Fellowship and author of over 26 books of magic. Filled with hand drawn watercolor artwork and illustrations, and bound in library covers. Seen by only a select few and destined to stay that way. There was only one copy of each.

Things have changed. Although still impossible to publish by conventional means due to the high cost, the books are published on CD-ROM. We have faithfully retained the original texture and feel of the originals and added an interactive interface that allows for searching, scaling and printing from your personal computer.

The 359 pages of this CD-ROM book contains 97 effects for Close-up – Stage – Mentalism – Children, etc. Taken from written instructions and books, to watched performances and word of mouth instruction. Here are the cherished ideas of Annemann, Stanley Collins, Paul Curry, Cy Endfield, Robert Harbin, R.W. Hull, Stewart James, Jordan, Milton Kort, Ed Marlo, Clayton Rawson, Harlan Tarbell, Edward Victor and many more.
