The Magic Wand

Edited by GEORGE ARMSTRONG No. 254. (Vol. 46, Part 2) Now on sale

MATHEMATICS, MAGIC AND MYSTERY by MARTIN GARDNER gives you five first-rate tricks with cards, common objects, dice, numbers, etc., all based upon a mathematical principle—including a clever vest-turning stunt.

PARTY FOR PAMELLA by JACK GITTINGS con tinues the outstanding series for the children's entertainer, dealing this time with SILK PRODUCTIONS, together with suggested presentations for standard props, patter, tips, routines, etc.

MY MAGIC by BRIDGER LEWIS gives you the terrific B.L. EGGS FROM HAT ROUTINE. Whether yeu are a born comedian or a naturally straight performer you'll not be able to avoid getting laugh upon laugh if you use this item. It's ideally suited to adult or children's shows. Also a very novel item in THE TAPED BOX in which borrowed objects mysteriously get into a closed and taped box.


describes his beautiful FLYING SALT routine, and you do not need to buy expensive props for this one. For good measure A NEW CARD TRANSPOSITION causes a signed card to vanish from a sealed envelope and return to the pack reversed. And there is a useful article by E.V. also, on FALSE COUNTING.

THE QUEEN OF THE RIBBON CAGE by CLETTIS V. MUSSON will be for you if you have ambitions to be an illusionist. This stage filling illusion can be made for less than £5, is colourful, baffling and entertaining.

THE NAME IS MINE by PAYO is a really different type of Dead Name Test, ideally suited to the Seance Room or the Intimate Show.

KOYNINI'S SEVENTEEN by TONI KOYNINI is a feature card routine for the mentalist. Two spectators pocket a number of cards each. One spectator selects a card from the pack, and one returns his packet of cards to the pack. All with the performer's back turned. The performer then names the selected card, finds the card by the sense of touch, names the number of cards in a spectator's pocket, and says which spectator it is, and tells the other spectator how many cards he originally held but returned to the pack!

A SILK PRODUCTION by TRAVERS COOPER is just what the title implies, but it is beautifully routined and is an example of perfect magic.

THE WESTON PINKIE REVERSE by MARK WESTON is for card enthusiasts. A card is reversed in the pack single handed. This new sleight will have many uses in card magic.

SUPER MEMORY IN CLOSE-UP by ARTHUR W. ROOTS is a simple but effective method for presenting the Giant Memory Feat as a close-up or bar stunt. ROUND THE DEPOTS by PETER McDONALD gives you a Hat Production routine for the children's entertainer, packed with laughter and surprises, but using only standard props which you probably already have. (You'll need an Evaporated Milk Jug, an ordinary Funnel and a load of silks!)

TRICKS AND SLEIGHTS by TOM SELLERS describes a fine prediction. Three spectators name a number, colour and book title. These are noted and tossed into a box. A card, which the performer has previously written on, is then removed from another box and given to a spectator for checking. It lists all the items just named! Easy to make and do! Also a TOP CHANGE stunt for the card enthusiast, and a CARD PREDICTION using a slate in a new and novel way. And as much more fine material again, which we have not the space to list here. A total of 35 tricks and routines, plus miscellaneous articles. We are sorry, but No. 253 in now OUT OF PRINT. Rush you order for No. 254 before this, too, follows suit.

Price: 7/6, Postage 7d. For this Giant (8£ x 11 in.) Book.
