I’ve often appreciated the extra effort that Jim Sherman’s National Magic Company put into their instruction sheets, the N.M.C. Presentation Routines, as they were called. They are consistently formatted, with tips, ideas, and details, and much better than many magic dealers and manufacturers.
So imagine my surprise when I found these three volumes of well over 300 N.M.C. effects fully described with their full, original, instruction sheets. Unlike Glenn Gravatt’s impressive Thayer Quality Magic Instruction Sheets these volumes are not traditionally printed books, they are instead created from the actual instruction sheets and bound. I have no idea how many of these were sold or even whether they were created by keen enthusiasts I’m just pleased they were done.
The three volumes cover over 300 effects created and/or sold by N.M.C. c. 1928-1950 (N.M.C. was sold c. 1963 and I’m not sure how many new effects were added during the 50’s and 60’s, but this seems like a pretty complete file.)
There is a lot of magic in these bad boys 🙂
