Hello:

Isn't it in the Kaufman publication "100"? --I forget, but will look tonight.

Also, wasn't it also known as Davenport's "English Glass Penetration"? - which, by-the-way, UF Grant was authorized to release, and which appears on Grant's color magic demonstration video from the 1940's.

The instructions aren't in the "One Hundred" book (but there is a photo of Peter performing it).


I don't know what publications would have the working details for you.

I don't know what the effect is, but Warlock performs some sort of glass penetration on this video, per the description.

I believe it was/is a marketed item, so it might not be explained in print.

Fabrice:

I've sent you an e-mail..

Yes--the "Davenport" and the "Peter Warlock Glass Penetration" are one and the same.

Peter Warlock created it in the late 1930's, and it was marketed by Davenport's as the "P.W. Glass Penetration Mystery".

As I also stated, U.F. Grant acquired the rights, and sold it as the "English Glass Penetration".

I've already sent you the instructions.

Abbott's might have had a model too?

Hi, found this older thread and am also looking for the publication where Warlock's glass penetration is published. I bought 100 by Warlock on eBay, and it's not in there.

Can anyone point me to the correct book?
