Contents include:

CHARLES HARRISON. Member of the Inner Magic Circle, London. A fine performer who is a master at devising magic dependent upon subtle ideas and misdirection. His “Marvellous Marbles” is one of the finest close-up routines it has been Lewis Ganson’s privilege to witness.

HARRY G. FRANKE of America who is well known for the clever ideas he has given to the magical fraternity through the pages of JEAN HUGARD’S excellent monthly magazine. “The Vanishing Lady” described herein is a terrific effect brought about with just three cards.

CY ENDFIELD. Well known Film Director and acknowledged to be one of the world’s finest card men. His subtle addition to the effect of tearing and restoring a treasury note has lifted it into the classical class.
