Vaudeville Mind Reading by David J. LustigVaudeville Mind Reading
by David J. Lustig ("La Vellma")

(Revised and expanded edition)

Dunninger's "behind the scenes man," David J. Lustig, describes a whopping twenty mind reading systems, second sight acts and entertaining psychic experiments in this book — each one carefully described in detail.

Learn to be an effective psychic entertainer! The collection includes:

  • Methods of so-called Crystal Gazing
  • A Musical Silent Thought Act
  • A Crystal Gazing Act for Club Entertainers
  • Electrical, Phonetic and Silent Codes
  • The Blindfold Drive
  • The Chess Knight Tour
  • Publicity Stunts
  • Voice Culture
  • Answering Catch Questions
  • and other valuable and instructive chapters.

Includes a supplement entitled "Gambols of the Ghosts" — a complete two-hour presentation, introducing demonstrations in Mysticism, Mental Telepathy, Occultism and kindred, weird and startling Pseudo-Psychic Phenomena, winding up with a novel Crystal Gazing performance. This entertainment will meet the approval of all advanced entertainers, especially the performer who wishes to carry only a limited amount of paraphernalia.

"In my opinion it is one of the best works on mindreading that I have ever read. The material you are offering at the exceptional low price you are asking for the book is amazing."

"Vaudeville Mind Reading is a volume much needed and well handled. Lustig's volume is interesting from cover to cover."
          --H. C. Kleeman, Sphinx magazine

The revised edition of this book comes to hand graced with a new cover design, increase in pages, and increase in material. This revised edition is to be recommended even more so than the original."
          --Dr. Milton A. Bridges, Sphinx magazine review
