You should read It includes notable work on color changes. Probably the best effect in this volume is the "Notis Stop Trick". Lewis Ganson expertly and with care to minute details explains the famous six ring routine devised by Dai Vernon. Vernon first performed the entire routine in front of Ganson's cine camera. By studying the film in slow motion, they were able to determine the most suitable photographs to take with a still camera to illustrate the text.
Many considered the best and most beautiful routine for the Chinese Linking Rings.
You can see Vernon perform this routine in Dai Vernon in Britain This is a fascinating combination of biographical detail and carefully described magical secrets researched and recorded by Dai Vernon and Lewis Ganson.
Vernon was an intimate friend of Leipzig.
Vernon not only saw many performances given by Leipzig, but Leipzig also explained Vernon in detail how all of his tricks worked and how they are to be performed. Vernon recorded this in his notebooks from which this publication was prepared by Ganson and Vernon. It is therefore fair to say that this is as close as you will ever get to learn from Leipzig.
Leipzig was a gentelman of magic who could This is a gorgeous and careful digitization of a classic originally published by Harry Stanley in the s. All drawings have not simply been scanned and included as images but have been converted to vectorized graphics.

Max Malini was one of the most extraordinary personalities in the history of the performance of magic. In this ebook, Dai Vernon shows how successfully Malini acted the role I was lucky that I stumbled across this book very early on in my magic development. It had a huge impact on how I approached magic and how I think today about magic.
The introductory chapter "The Vernon Touch" should be mandatory reading for every magician. I would go so far as to recommend re-reading it every year. Martin Breese wrote: Search All.

At the outset, it appears that the performer is merely taking a two-to-one chance, but when, as the effect is repeated, he is constantly correct, the mystery deepens, especially as no questions are asked throughout the demonstration.
In addition, there is a novel and amusing climax to the trick which builds it up into an exceptionally strong item.
This is one of Dai Vernon's tricks which is a particular favourite with his friend Faucett Ross. The Double Lift is one of the most useful sleights in card magic. Dai Vernon reveals his own method, which allows the cards to be handled in an apparently casual and natural manner. Here is Dai Vernon's wonderful routine in which there is no over-elaboration; it has been kept simple, both in plot and handling.
The audience is in no doubt as to what has happened or is happening, although they are given no clue as to how it is accomplished. Everything appears to be free from trickery, the props are simple, the movements of the performer natural; there is no clever hand-play which could be interpreted as sleight of hand, so that, as each phase of the plot unfolds, the audience becomes more bewildered.
When finally the cups are lifted to disclose an apple, an onion and a lemon, then they are prepared to admit that they have witnessed the ultimate in magic. Surely this is the finest routine with the Cups and Balls ever evolved. It was Dai Vernon's particular wish that this chapter should be included in his book, as he was anxious that certain subtleties that Leipzig disclosed to him, and which had been omitted from previously published versions of the card stab, should be credited to the originator.
The originator left nothing to chance in his magic and included no difficult sleight of hand. His effects were obtained by subtle methods and naturalness of action, and this routine exemplifies Leipzig at his very best.
Interesting and entertaining magical effects, in which knots apparently tie and untie themselves, are popular features in many performer's acts. In this chapter Dai Vernon reveals three original knot effects. A knot is tied in the centre of a silk handkerchief. The performer strikes the knot with his extended forefinger, which causes the knot to vanish.
A new and natural-looking method for upsetting a knot.
Two silks are firmly tied together; a click is heard and the knot splits in two, causing the silks to fall apart. Dai Vernon's entirely new and original method for performing this popular and entertaining card trick, in which apparently no matter how often the performer removes three cards from six he still has six cards left. He reveals his own simplified handling of the moves by which he causes coins to appear under several articles on a table.
His climax is particularly entertaining, as coins apparently appear faster than he can pick them up and stuff them into his pockets.
After shuffling and cutting the pack, the performer removes ten cards, which he hands to a spectator with the request that any one card be thought of. Now the spectator is asked to mentally spell the name of his card.
This is done without a word being spoken, the spectator removing a card from the top of the packet and placing it on the bottom for every letter in the name of his mentally selected card. At the conclusion of the mental spell, the performer reveals the spectator's card in a startling manner.
This chapter contains several items of Dai Vernon's magic which are either not complete tricks in themselves, or, if complete, are not of sufficient descriptive length to form a chapter on their own.
A beautiful series of moves which provide an excellent climax for any dice routine. A spectator hands the performer ANY ten cards from the pack, then names any one of them. Leaving the cards in exactly the same order as they were handed to him, the performer places the top card to the bottom and the next card on the table and repeats these actions until one card remains.
It is the named card. A beautiful move which can be incorporated into any Cups and Balls routine. Originated by this fine magician, who is a great friend of Dai Vernon.
A fine routine with three cards and three match-sticks. The matches vanish, appear and multiply under the cards in the same way as the balls in a Cups and Balls routine.
An excellent item of impromptu magic. Dai Vernon reveals several all-important but little known tips for the improvement of certain sleights with cards and coins. This is the exquisite routine which was a feature of Dai Vernon's famous Harlequin Act. The performer removes a silk handkerchief from his pocket and draws it through his otherwise empty hands - a large white ball appears from the corner of the handkerchief.
After draping the handkerchief over his left hand, he places the ball on the palm and covers it with the cone. The cone and handkerchief are tossed into the air - the ball has vanished, but is found in the performer's pocket. A series of vanishes and reappearances of the ball now take place and during the process it changes colour from white to red, then back again to white. Eventually the empty cone is placed on the table and the ball is wrapped in the handkerchief - but it penetrates the centre of the handkerchief.
Again it is wrapped up securely, but this time it vanishes completely.
However, the ball, like a homing pigeon, has returned once more to its hiding place under the cone on the table. During the last months of Dr. Daley's life he evolved another of his excellent card tricks, which he demonstrated for Dai Vernon.
Dai Vernon was a very close friend of the Doctor's, and includes this trick in his book as a tribute to a great magician. This is a routine with just the four Aces - a perfect transposition of the black and red Aces.
The handling is so clean and natural in appearance that there appears to be no opportunity for trickery - a fine effect by a master magician. This was one of the favourite impromptu effects of Paul Rosini. A thimble jumps from the forefinger of the performer's right hand on to the forefinger of his left hand - then back and forth.
The performer confesses that he uses more than one thimble - and reveals five thimbles, one on each finger and one on the thumb of his right hand.
He now causes them to jump singly from his right hand on to the fingers and thumb of his left hand, and finishes by dropping each thimble singly into a glass. This is a most entertaining demonstration in which the performer offers to show the methods employed by crooked gamblers when playing Poker.
Although the spectators are shown that cards are stacked during a shuffle and see the performer deal himself four Aces, they still cannot understand why those cards should turn up in the dealer's hand. However, the performer repeats the effect, and eventually every hand is a good one - but the dealer has a Royal Flush. Dai Vernon employs subtle but simple methods to bring about his effect and has evolved a routine which holds the interest of the audience from start to finish.
Dai Vernon credits Ten Ichi and Paul Rosini with the subject matter of this chapter, but undoubtedly he has enhanced the routine with the "Vernon Touch"!
Here is the most convincing method of all for having a spectator tie the performer's thumbs together, and a really first-class routine which has been a feature of Dai Vernon's act for many years. Every detail is given, so that there will be no difficulty in understanding every move.
