The Conjuring Record, advertised as "America's Live Journal of hlagic, Ventriloquism, Juggling and the Allied Arts", was published "every once-in-so-often" by V. K. Allison out of Bronxville, New York.

It was published from March, 1913 until May, 1915 with Vol. 3 No. 3.

The first few issues were free then went to 2 cents per issue (25 cents per year) starting with Vol 1. No. 3.

Beginning with Vol 1, No 7, it declared itself the official organ of the National Conjurers' Association. It later resigned as their official organ in Vol. 2, No. 3 (May 1914) because they did not want readers to imply that it was controlled by the N. C. A. They still carried the "N.C.A Notes" column.

A complete file consists of 27 issues.[1]

It was announced at the suspension, due to the health of Allison, that those holding subscriptions would automatically be enrolled for their balance as subscribers to Impromptu Trixter. Unfortunately, it only lasted one issue.[2]
