Percy Naldrett continues the “Collected Magic” series with a wide range of superb effects and contributions from a number of very clever magical thinkers. This volume begins with a baffling Ring and Rope effect from Rupert Woodhouse Pitman, complete with charming patter about the notorious Cockney jail-breaker Jack Sheppard. In an indication of how diverse the material in this collection is, the next item comes from France’s Luc Mégret, who offers a series of productions that see ribbons, spring flowers and confetti emerge from a paper fan. Fifteen further effects follow, including a stage levitation of a ribbon-spread packet of cards, a visible disappearance and reappearance of a silk handkerchief, and a Stop effect that packs small, plays big, and makes clever use of a back palm. While some of the props mentioned in More Collected Magic may now be somewhat outdated — attempts to borrow top hats from modern audience members are likely to be unsuccessful — anyone seeking clear explanations of lesser-known but inspiring magic from professional performers’ repertoires will enjoy this book.
