'''Edward Bagshawe''' (1902-1940) was a professional dealer during the 1920s in London, England. He edited the magic magazines [[Magical Monthly (Bagshawe)| Magical Monthly]] (1923-1926), [[Talks on Trix]] (1926 - 1927), and [[Edward Bagshawe's Magical Journal]] (1927-1932).
  
He invented the [[Optica Deck]]. He is also being credited with the paper modification of the Out-to-Lunch principle (1) 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)
