The Magic Wand was a British Magic Periodical that ran for 47 years from Vol. 1, No. 1 (September 1910) to Vol. 46, No. 256 (December 1957). It was equivalent to the US published Sphinx in terms of influence, longevity and timeframe.

Vol. 9, No. 4, 1920

The Magic Wand was a actually continuation of P. T. Selbit's magazine The Wizard, which was renamed when it was handed over to George Munro.

It started out as a monthly, suspended for a time during World War I, was transformed into a quarterly in 1921 after George Johnson had taken over, and finally became an undated "four-part book" until the last issue which bore the number 256.

Professor Hoffmann made regular contributions and The Annals of Conjuring by Sydney W. Clarke was first serialized here.
