He invented the Optica Deck. He is also being credited with the paper modification of the Out-to-Lunch principle used with "The Recurring Name" contained in Twenty Magical Novelties (1930) but Max Maven has found early sources. To wit (as write Sir Jon): "However, in 1994 I tracked down the existence of a prior source, Tom Bowyer's "A Message From Nowhere" in the April 1928 Linking Ring. And, in 1995, I found yet an earlier credit: William Larsen Sr., "Finger Prints" in the July 1923 Sphinx." (Reprint from The Collected Wisdom of Magic Talk)

Bagshawe edited the magic magazine Magical Monthly from 1923 - 1926.

After his suicide his business was absorbed by Davenport's.
