Great Illusions of Magic
by Byron G. Wels

For the first time ... an illusion book with PROFESSIONAL draftsman?s plans!

The cost for these plans, 9 purchased separately, would be about $500, if you could buy them! As an extra bonus for you, we?ve secured permission from Colonel Alcorn to include the Thin Model Sawing a Woman in Half! This alone is worth the cost of the entire book, but you still got such great classics as ?Lady from the Light,? ?Aga Levitation,? ?Murder in the Telephone Booth,? ?The Chest of Chu-Chin -Chow,? ?Jack Gwynne?s Box Tray and Screen,? ?The Zenith Water Fountain Act,? ?Fire and Water Illusion,? ?The Brooks Trunk,? and many, many others. TWO HARDBOUND VOLUMES!

You get TWO big volumes, a 320 page book of text, full of specifications, building tips, historical information. The other is a book of professional draftsman?s plans with fully detailed and dimensioned drawings.? A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR In bringing out this book, Tannen's Magic has made a major contribution to the art of magic. Many of the plans contained there in would have been lost forever and preserved only in the minds of those who saw these great illusions as they were worked by magicians of the past.

Publishing this book ensures that now the plans will never be lost The more copies there are -the more people who have them - the safer they will be for posterity.
