Our last sets of Terri Rogers’s professional’s book test – The Master Key are now at their original price of £100. The Master Key is provided with books and instructions you need for a stunning effect on audiences large or small. A copy of instructions for Val Andrews Unfaked Book Test – which works with any book is now. included with every order. So you can now perform at least five effects with the same pack.


The Magic of Fred Robinson is a large beautifully produced book – which is why it is priced at £50. As a special offer a copy of Fred Robinson’s Live DVD ‘Snap Crackle and Pop will be included with each order.

In the 1980s Martin Breese pioneered recordings of the great and famous people in the magic world. These were known as Magicassettes and have magicians explaining their routines or chatting about the history of magic. We have David Berglas explaining the Berglas Effect and Robert Harbin telling his life story. Eventually, of course, the cassettes were made digital and sold on CDs. Now the full collection of 80 recordings is only available to download on

Stanyon, Ellis (ed)

Magic Magazine Bound 1901 to 1920

Stanyon 0

Bound early copies of Magic magazine. NOT a complete run, but there are 70 issues with 1909 and 1910 complete. This appears to be a working copy of a magician contemporary at the time - with additional items and references written and pasted in. Frustratingly I can't tell if this is the collection of one of the greats. Boards are cracked and stained. Front and rear ends full of notes and indexes. Most of the actual copies in  good condition. Poor Hardcover
