PDF – Still Further Classic Magic with Apparatus (the Classic Magic series, vol. 5) 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—the series continues!

This is a book not only for collectors, but scholars and performers too. Boasting comprehensive written explanations and clear illustrations throughout, Still Further Classic Magic with Apparatus sees Dr. Robert J. Albo explore some of the finest close-up, parlor and stage magic that audiences have ever enjoyed.

Magic effects with liquid are somewhat neglected by modern practitioners, but are among the most enchanting that can be performed. Still Further Classic Magic with Apparatus begins with a lengthy examination of these astonishing routines, and encompasses everything from fishbowl productions to the Patriotic Liquids, the Barrel of Plenty and the Vanishing Glass of Water. Detailed explanations of effects with clocks and watches—likewise now seen somewhat less often—follow, guiding the reader through productions, vanishes and transpositions. After chapters on magic with candles and miscellaneous props, boasting routines including the Floating Candle, the Okito Rice Bowls, and a Giant Card Rise, Dr. Albo turns his attention to spiritualistic effects, in a chapter that encompasses the Floating Table, the Rapping Hand, the Talking Skull, and discussions of billet knives, the Spirit Slates and much more. Bringing the book’s trick explanations to a close is a section devoted to the parlor magic of Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser. Still Further Classic Magic with Apparatus concludes with a contribution from F. William Kuethe, Jr., who offers a fascinating, and amply illustrated, study of magicians’ tokens and coins, and a color section showing props from various magicians’ collections.
