PDF – Classic Magic Supplement (Classic Magic series, vol. 8) by Robert J. Albo



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

Effect explanations, prop illustrations and fascinating stories—the Classic Magic series continues.

If it’s tricks you’re after, Dr. Robert J. Albo’s Classic Magic Supplement will offer you plenty. These pages feature amply illustrated explanations of Robert-Houdin’s magical portfolio, Okito’s square-circle tubes, Chung Ling Soo’s production cylinder and more. If you’re seeking color photographs of magnificent individual props and entire collections, look no further. This isn’t just one publication, however—it’s eight separate PDFs. Among them you’ll find Eric C. Lewis’s chronological study of Theo Bamberg’s career (“The Okito Timeline”), a look at the life and work of Floyd Thayer, and a fascinating essay on the Book Test by F. William Kuethe, Jr.  Accompanying the three volumes Dr. Albo published together under the Classic Magic Supplement title, we have included his illustrated standalone booklets Magic; Okito; Magic Collecting; Zauber Klingl, a study of the great Austrian prop manufacturer; and The Magic Apparatus Collection of Robert J. Albo, M.D.
