The book is definitely lousy.''William Larsen Senior 'It is one of the greatest books on illusions ever to be published.' 'David Bamberg (Fu Manchu) Magic Inc. proudly annouces: Jarrett In a new, enlarged edition by Jim Steinmeyer. Magic's most prized, legendary book is available once again. Guy Jarrett's 1936 book delighted some and infuriated others, but there was no doubt that it was the work of a genius. Jarrett was the confidant and illusion designer for Thurston, Kellar, and almost all the great magicians of the early 1900's. His book was filled with his incredible creations, his insider's view of history, and some 'point blank' opinions. Magicians winced, laughed, and marveled over the magic, which has never been matched. And today, although Jarrett Magic is a mysterious collector's item, it still sparkles and stings unlike any other book. In this new edition, even more complete than the original, Jim Steinmeyer has provided insightful commentary, new drawings and photos, and the full story of Guy Jarrett and his unusual effort to produce his book. The original Thin Model Sawing in Halves, the Selbit and Goldin Sawings, Vanishing Autos, Levitation, Vanishing Elephants, 21 Person Production, The Thurston Show...From hokum sideshows to the most sumptuous Broadway dramas, Jarrett included the stories behind over 50 illusions and stage effects...and even some card tricks. All the Jarrett history and ingenuity, plus dozens of stories as only Guy could tell them. 187 pages, 8 1/2x11 inches, top quality printing and hardbound with silver stamped linen cover, this is a beautiful book for your library and a classic of magic. There is no other book like it! Guy included a warning with his original book. We feel obliged to do the same. Jarrett's text is sprinkled with profanities and he played rough with many legends of magic. We have not deleted any of it, so don't say we didn't warn you!
