The Wizard, An Illustrated Monthly Journal For Conjurers, Concert Artistes, and all Entertainers was a Magic Periodical by P. T. Selbit from London that ran from September 1905 until August 1910.

On May, 1906 issues, it stated it was the Official Organ of the The Magic Circle.

When Selbit's professional career started taking too much of his time, he handed the magazine over to George Munro who renamed it The Magic Wand.

In April, 1947, George Armstrong resumed publication of The Wizard.[1]


Five volumes, 60 issues.
