The other day I found a free Guy Jarrett stage illusions e-book from Google.
And you know what, this is a highly sought-after rare book of illusions.
For those of you who are into stage illusion acts, then you should know the notorious illusion builder Guy Jarrett.
Jarrett is known for constructing illusions for T. Nelson Downs aka “The King of Koins”, Howard Thurston, leading Broadway shows, sideshows and the Chicago world’s fairs.
Apparently he was very difficult to work with and you would find that he was downright arrogant too.
Jarrett invented the first “Thin Model” of the “Sawing Illusion, “Siamese Cabinet, “Bangkok Bungalow” and the “Jarrett Pedestal”.
Jarrett Magic and Stagecraft, Technical 1936
Do you know he had this 106-page long-forgotten book titled “Jarrett Magic and Stagecraft, Technical” way back in 1936?
The cover of this archaic looking book is bound with blue color cloth.
It was stamped with the silver lettering ‘JARRETT‘.
He tried selling to other magicians at his times for $5 each.
Guy Jarrett even advertised in major magic magazines.
But sadly, there response was poor and he destroyed the remaining copies.
In fact, he gave away copies to magicians he liked.
He even gave one to Henry Ford.
This book is not the hard-cover 1981 edition, “The Complete Jarrett” by Jim Steinmeyer.
In fact, you can find all the original content from “Jarrett Magic and Stagecraft, Technical” in this book.
They are reproduced in facsimile, with informative comments, and annotations, with hundreds of photos and drawings.
You can find amazing stage illusions with illustrations and photographs together with detailed explanations.
This book is now rare and much sought after by the professional magicians to add to their collections.
At the point of writing, I found that this rare used first edition book is selling at a whopping $4,500 over at Denny & Lee Magic Studio.
But do you know you can get this rare magic book for FREE online?
It is not from a torrent file.
