Description

The incomparable Hugard’s Magic Monthly has more magic per page than almost any other periodical ever published.

Fred Braue said, “On the whole I think there is more good material in Hugard’s than all the remaining magazines put together”.
Edited by Jean Hugard, Hugard’s Magic Monthly was “Devoted solely to the interests of magic and magicians” from 1943 to 1964 and featured the most interesting information on the magic scene during that period. Hugard wrote, “My object in publishing this sheet is to set forth fully, clearly and conscientiously the best things in magic so that if my readers absorb the instructions and carry them out in practice they will acquire a repertoire of good magic that will last a lifetime”. He succeeded admirably!
Hugard’s boasts 245 issues, more than 1,560 individual tricks and sleights, and 2500 pages in 21 volumes. Quite a lot of material.
