True Secrets of Conjuring collects for the first time some of the most influential and impossible-to-find early writings on magic theory and psychology.

The CD features essays and techniques that set the stage for modern conjuring performances, from the practical rules laid out by Robert-Houdin and Maskelyne to the natural-school teachings of the mysterious Elbiquet to the high-art principles of Louis C. Haley's "Actor-Magician Essays" from The Dramatic Art of Magic.

You'll also find an eye-opening collection of early writings on the psychology of magic, including clinical tests of Kellar and Herrmann: The Psychology of Deception (1888) by Joseph Jastrow, The Psychology of Legerdemain (1893) by Max Dessoir, The Psychology of Prestidigitation (1894) by Alfred Binet, Psychological Notes on Sleight-of-Hand Experts (1896) by Joseph Jastrow, Psychology of Some Card Tricks (1899), The Psychology of Conjuring Deceptions (1900) by Norman Triplett, The Psychology of Magic (1919) by Paul R. Rockwood, The Psychology of Deception (1920) by Hereward Carrington, The Psychology of Legerdemain (1927) by S. B. Blodgett, Deceptive Psychology (1929) by Nelson C. Hahne, and The Psychology of Conjuring by Robert Bernhard (1936).

The CD also includes several other important essays on magic theory by Robert-Houdin, Professor Hoffmann, John Mulholland, Edwin A. Sachs, Arthur Buckley, and others.

CD with over 600 pages of material, housed in a shelf-ready case with beautiful full-color cover

"I cannot even begin to tell you what a fabulous compilation of hard-to-find magic resources you have put together on the True Secrets of Conjuring CD. I have many of the texts as first editions already in my collection, but to have access to these resources on my laptop at a click of the mouse is a milestone for magic!" - Tom Meseroll

"Your True Secrets is a True Treasure! Great work!" - John Flanagan
