Vernon's Private Note Book

Postby Guest » December 19th, 2002, 9:04 pm

Strictly a 'collectable' item, not enough detail to perform most of the material. A little booklet, 4 inches by about 6, black cardboard covers,abouty 15 enamel pages in Vernon's handwriting, closing with 4 hand-printed pages of "Leipzig's Act" ('small table,chair one each side, enters wearing Tuxedo; "Ladies and Gentlemen, I will show you a few simple novelties, using no apparatus what-so-ever, only my hands." Preceding 2 pages,are Mora's Act, Balls in the Net, "Ladies and Gentlemen: I am going to show you on of the finest examples of pure sleight of hand you have ever seen. (not so "Silent" Mora)..." Malinis's Act (Florida Hotel), he simply lists 7 effects involved; a Full Dice Routine' a list of 11 (his favorites?), under teh title" Hofzinser Effects" Re- printed in 1987, probably out of print.

Marty, this was the bonus that came with the deluxe edition of volume one of "The Vernon Chronicles." I immediately noticed, upon seeing it, that the publisher had printed it with the pages IN THE WRONG ORDER!

"I immediately noticed, upon seeing it, that the publisher had printed it with the pages IN THE WRONG ORDER!"

Does that make it more collectible? :-)

Peter,
What a clever insight! I don't know. I KNOW it would with numismatists or philatelists but as a conjuring collectible, d.k. But thanks. I can at least think along those lines.
