By David Robbins. 80 large pages of over 100 easy to do tricks for parlor and stage, that anyone can perform with simple inexpensive props. There are tricks with cards, ropes, cigarettes, coins, as well as clever mind reading effects, and more. This book contains a complete course of instruction in ventriloquism and an important chapter on showmanship.  Truly the greatest value ever offered.

 

The tricks in this book represent a selection of the best tricks from each issue of Magic Is Fun.  Magic is Fun was a bi-monthly "Independent Magazine for the Amateur Magician", published by D. Robbins & Company in New York, that published only 7 issues between March 1946 and December 1947.  The first issue (of 100,000 copies) paid tribute to Houdini and had contributions by Paul Benov, Al Davids, Alan Stuart, Jerry Smith, Guy Deforest, Robert Orben and Robert A. Nelson. It also contained a piece on Al Flosso.
