Thayer's Magical Bulletin
First issueJanuary, 1914
Final issueMay, 1925

Thayer's Magical Bulletin was a Magic Periodical by Floyd Thayer and Louis Christianer in Los Angeles, California that ran from Vol. 1, No. 1, January 1914 thru Vol. 12, No. 7, May 1925.

The magazine was issued as a "house organ of the Magic Shop of the West" and was originally sent free of charge. It was also for a time, the official organ of the Pacific Coast Society of Magicians (Vol. 01 No. 03 until Vol 2. No. 3).

Volumes I and II only had six issues only. Volumes III on had twelve issues.

Some twenty-three years later, William W. Larsen, Sr., then owner of Thayer's, revived the Magical Bulletin for two more issues: Vol. 13, No. 1 (June, 1948) and Vol. 13, No. 2 (Fall, 1948).

Notes: Volume three, number seven (July, 1915) is wrongly numbered eight.[1]
