Want List

I'm looking for these magazines to complete my collection:

  • Magic Manuscript - Volume 11 Issue 3 - November / December 1989 - Cover - The Tenyo Team
  • Magic Manuscript - Volume 12 Issue 2 - September / October 1990 - Cover - Women in Magic Pt. 1

Did you know?

  • The Ring in Nest of Boxes dates back to 1751?
  • The Rising Card Effect first appeared in print in 1626?
  • The Sympathetic Silks trick was invented by Edward Victor?
  • Spring Flowers were invented by Buatier de Kolta?
  • The Vent Talking Hand was first performed in 1796?
  • A Cigarette Act was first presented in Paris by the Spanish magician, Franz-Klint, in 1916?
  • With the exception of a short description of the Pass and the Force by Guyot in 1769, Henri Decremps (1746-1826) was the first writer in any language to explain the basic card sleights?
  • The Sliding Die Box was invented by Alex Davis, an Englishman, who first performed it in the U.S.A. about 1886. The Rights were sold to Otto Mauer, a New York Dealer, who advertised it in 1897?
  • Bill Stickland published a method a Balloon Penetration?
  • The 20th Century Silks effect was first performed by David Devant, and his method later explained in Hoffmann's ' Later Magic' (1904)?
  • The Wild Card was invented by Peter Kane of Manchester, and shown by him months before it was ' invented' and marketed in the U.S.A.?
  • David Devant invented the Dyed Handkerchief Through Paper Tube and first presented the trick in 1893?
  • A Vanishing Cane made of spring steel, was described in the July 1899 issue of Mahatma?
  • Selbit was first to perform the Magic Bricks?
  • Buatier de Kolla was the first to produce flowers from a Cone, and Billiard Balls at the fingertips using a half shell?
  • the shell stack of coins was in the 4 Anatomie of Legerdemain 1634?
  • the carbon or impression card was first described in the March 1920 'Magic Wand"?
  • David Devant invented the Dyed Handkerchiefs and first presented the trick in 1893?
  • That although James Wobensmith is generally credited with the 4 one band adaptation of the Afghan Bands, credit really belongs to Ted Beal, who was first to do the trick with one band and published it in Naldrett's "More Collected Magic" in 1921.
  • The single colour-change handkerchief using a flesh-coloured tube with tape divider was first mentioned in 'Later Magic" (1904) and credited by Hoffmann to Ellis Stanyon. But in Robertson Keene's "More Novel Notes and Notions" (1907), the inventor is named as James Carl (James Wakefield) and it is quite possible he had used it for some considerable time before parsing it on to Keene.
