36 Magic Books: Other Magic R-Z

[MK] I guess there are actual tricks in here, but its mostly fun
stories. They do explain how to cut & restore a snake and how to
annoy Letterman. A must for any P&T fan.


Rice and Van Zandt Through the Dye Tube
(1971, Silk King Studios)

[SD] Reprint of a 1943 document on use of the dye tube for vanishing,
producing, and performing color changes with silks. A basic text on
working with a dye tube for silks.


Seabrooke, Terry Around the World with a Baking Tin
(?,?)

[MK] Terry gives his routine for his burned bill and linking rings.
He also includes tips for the MC and worker. Interesting reading,
good stories, but I'm not sure I'll use anything in it.


Shute, Merlyn How-To Book of the Chop Cup
(1980, Morrissey Magic Ltd)

[SD] A monograph on the use of the Chop Cup.


Shute, Merlyn Out of Your Pocket
(?, Morrissey Magic Ltd)

[RD] More than the title suggests, this booklet gives some pointers
for choosing effects to perform professionally in a restaurant
setting, choosing a professional name, etc. Favourite trick: Sid
Lorraine's handling for the cut and restored rope.


Shute, Merlyn How-To Book of the Zombie
(1983, Morrissey Magic Ltd)

[SD] A monograph on the use of the Zombie.


Shute, Merlyn Cups, Cups, Cups
(1980, Morrissey Magic Ltd)

[SD] A monograph on the use of the Cups and Balls.


Walsh, Audley Sponge Ball Manipulations
(1940, Tannen)

[RD] A booklet of routines using mostly standard, but also some
non-standard sponge balls. Includes the "Master Routine". Some
clever moves, but the routines are very dated.


Weigle, Oscar and Dell, Alan Money Magic of Mike Bornstein, The
(1980, Magico Magazine)
Lees, Walt More Money Magic of Mike Bornstein
(198?, Magico Magazine)
Bornstein, Mike Latest Money Magic of Mike Bornstein
(1988, Bornstein)

[SD] Set of three booklets on magic with dollar bills: floating them,
folding them, tearing them, etc.


Willmarth, Phillip Ring and Rope Book (Vol One)
(1976, Willmarth)

[SD] A survey of things to do with rope and a single ring (metal or
wooden). For those who do the Linking Rings and or rope effects,
maybe you'd like putting them together for some variety. (Some folks
like to do this sort of stuff with silks and rings.)

[RD] This is a fine book, but it has more typos per page ("left hand"
instead of "right hand", etc) than any other I've seen. Once you sort
them out, some of the tricks are great. Favourite trick: Quicksilver.
