Hugard's Magic Monthly was one of the greatest magazines on magic ever published because it was edited by one of magic's most knowledgeable men.

More than 1,560 individual tricks and sleights, plus hundreds of tips, ideas and reviews, and historical news items appeared in its 245 issues. A total of 2,524 pages!
