doublebilltube.jpg Double Bill Tube [Peerless]
$79.95
The Double Bill Tube is without a doubt one of the most extraordinary magical props you will ever hope to use. When properly presented, no other close-up miracle can compare. This effect was invented by a very good friend of mine, the late Walter Gibson (Magician, Creator of the 'Shadow', ghostwriter for Houdini, Blackstone and Thurston, and one of the most creative minds in magic). A brass tube with a screw cap is shown empty, threaded closed, and sealed with a sticker affixed to the cap. The sealed tube is then left in Full View. The sealed container is now place within a second, larger tube, which is capped and also sealed with a sticker. This doubly sealed unit is held by a spectator. A previously borrowed dollar bill, with it's serial number noted and having been marked, is caused to vanish! The spectator holding the nested, sealed tubes is instructed to break the seals and remove the contents. The Identical Marked Bill is found within the second sealed tube!! Our deepest thanks to Walter Gibson and to Carl Brema, who made some of Walter's dreams into Magical realities. We hope that those purchasing this effect will agree that the Brema tradion is still alive...quality brass construction by Viking Mfg.

profmagicforamateurssm.jpg Professional Magic For Amateurs [Walter B. Gibson]
$9.95
This book is for the amateur magician who wants to learn (and start performing) well-known card tricks that professionals use. Fifty easy, yet effective tricks are presented, offering a well-rounded repertoire on which the beginner can draw while developing further interests and skills.

"To explain how magic is done is one thing," Mr. Gibson says in his introduction, "to tell how to do it quite another." In this volume you will be taken through every stage of each trick-an overview, how the tricks appear to the audience, the mechanism behind the trick and finally the presentation details that allow you to perform the trick in a completely professional manner. By carefully following the few simple yet essential tips, the tricks will soon be yours.

Emphasis is on tricks that can be performed informally with a small group of friends. There are card tricks of both the set-up and impromptu kind, there are tricks with string, handkerchiefs, tumblers and other simple apparatus. And, there are examples of mental magic where the purpose is "to deceive the mind rather than the eye." A final section on well-known stage illusions shows how the same performance principles are carried to magic on a higher level. With this book the beginner will be able to perform professional tricks within hours, while even the more advanced magician will find new tricks and new ways of doing old ones. The author draws upon a lifetime in professional magic for his tricks. Not only is Mr. Gibson well-known as one of the best writers about magic, he was also long associated with Houdini, the Thurstons, and other great magicians of the past! Paperbound, 223 5 3/8" by 8 1/2" pages, 63 illustrations.

Walter B. Gibson and The Shadow [Thomas J. Shimeld ]
$44.95
Foreword by Robert W. Gibson! "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? . . . The Shadow knows!" And who knew The Shadow better than his creator, Walter B. Gibson. Relatively few people have heard of Gibson, but many more are familiar with The Shadow having listened to the program on the Blue Coal Radio Program in the 1930s and read the Street & Smith Shadow Novels.

Walter B. Gibsonís life and career come out from behind The Shadow in this biography. It covers his youth in Philadelphia, his development as a writer and magician, his wives, including the third, (Litzka, who was a harpist and magician in her own right), his time living in Maine and upstate New York, and his later years and death.

In addition to being credited with creating The Shadow (he used the pseudonym Maxwell Grant), Gibson wrote 187 books, contributed 668 articles to periodicals, created 283 stories for The Shadow Magazine, wrote 48 separate syndicated feature columns, reported the adventures of The Shadow and Blackstone the magician in 394 comic books and newspaper strips, and helped develop 147 radio scripts and many other works under numerous pseudonyms. Gibson has invented many widely used magic tricks and traveled with and befriended Harry Houdini, Howard Thurston, Harry Blackstone, Sr., and Joseph Dunninger.
