|For Magicians Only
by Charles Waller
Once in a lifetime, there comes a book--a volume that will stand in magical history as a lasting monument, and tribute to the Magic Art. This, according to Floyd Thayer, is such a book.
Part 1 is devoted to the purpose and presentation of magic in all its phases--comprising the complete analysis of Magic from the beginning to the end: What Magic Is, Apparatus & Sleights, Dress, Environment, Plot, Silence, Speech, Dramatic, Humorous, Music, Settings, Program Material, Introductions, The Magic Sketch, etc. etc.
Part 2 deals with an abundance of remarkable examples of patter, adaptable to standard effects in magic.
Part 3 is comprised of many new and original effects--a veritable paradise of original mystical mysteries under the following titles, with full explanatory illustrations:
Some of the effects were later marketed separately by Thayer. This is a testament to the quality of the author's creations.
The original print edition was limited to 1000 copies and was sold out shortly after release. Now, in this newly revised and corrected digital edition, you, too can own a copy of this masterpiece of magic.
PDF format. Updated and corrected reprint of the 1923 F. G. Thayer first edition. Includes three new chapters, important edits and additional features. Completely reset in crystal clear type. 163 pages. ($8 US)
