PDF – Additional Classic Magic with Apparatus (Classic Magic series, vol. 9) by Robert J. Albo



Conjuring Arts and the Albo family proudly and exclusively offer Dr. Albo’s “Classic Magic” collection in PDF format!

The definitive guide to the greatest prop-based magic ever created—expanded!

After publishing the first eight great volumes of his mighty Classic Magic series, Dr. Robert J. Albo could have easily concluded that there was little more to say about prop-based conjuring. Time, however, brought never-before-seen items to his attention, and they form much of the focus of this book.

In the first chapter, Dr. Albo enlists no less an authority than Magic Christian to help him explore Austrian magic. A study of Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser is followed by an enlightening look at Austrian prop makers, the Klingl family chief among them. Then comes a host of explanations, all fully illustrated, of props and effects including the Card Star, the Rose Mirror and the Card in the Frame. In chapter two, Dr. Albo and Piet Hart offer thorough explanations of Dutch magic. A number of Okito’s pet effects are detailed, with the Bamberg Egg Bag, the Fall-Apart Bird Vanish and the Okito Card Rise well worth the attention of any modern performer. The lengthy third and final chapter, “Now and Then,” offers a wealth of props and routines, from Coins in the Glass to the Obedient Ball and the Inexhaustible Bottle, that have long-established roots, but still earn gasps and applause from audiences the world over. A full-color section showing a range of props, many produced by or for Okito, rounds out this delightful volume.

319 pages. Fully searchable text with extensive illustrations.
