A collection of more than one hundred routines, suggestions, tips, presentations, gags, and ideas for the "Vanishing Milk Pitcher"


This book is a veritable encyclopedia of Milk Pitcher Magic. The ingenious author, with his clever ideas and presentations, has given the prosaic pitcher the versatility of a thumb tip.

Few writers of contemporary conjuring have added as much to the repertoires of today's wizards as has Henry Fetsch. His Rope Epic was a runaway best-seller in the nation's magic shops. His Miniature Card Magic is, even now, in its third edition.

Since his first piece in Seven Circles, many years ago, he has been a consistent contributor to the magic magazines. His tricks have been featured in The Jinx, The Conjurors, Genii, The Sphinx, The Linking Ring, Tops, and the Phoenix.

You may find magic by Fetsch in Tarbell 4, Thompson's My Best, Nelson's Miracles of Mentalism, Annemann's Practical Mental Effects and Ireland's new Yearbook.

"Hen" was awarded an I. B. M. silver medal for originality and he captured a "Sphinx" award for—you guessed it—magic with milk pitchers.

When he was twelve, it was my pleasure to introduce Henry Fetsch at his first public show. He was a little reticent then, and Phil Thomas bad to give him a shove from the doorway. After that he just had to perform.

Once again I'm happy to introduce my old friend. This time he needs no push from the doorway, nor will the reader need any prodding once he finishes the first page.
