What's on the ten DVDs that come in the Ultimate Thayer set?

We shot 20 hours of new video footage of Thayer pieces which are shown and described (not performed). The footage is edited down to ten hours along with historical films of Floyd Thayer, his Brookledge home and many friends and fellow magicians who visited and performed there. The old footage is newly narrated.

Hi Phil
I have been trying to send you a PM for the last few days. I have it posted here, in your inbox, I hope you have a chance to read it before the deadline today.
The Website you have listed seems to not be up for the last week or so, either.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks,
Mike

Magic Mike and others,

If you mail your order for the Ultimate Thayer today, December 15, we will honor the $400 (including shipping!) special price. Please mail to me or to Dr. Bob Albo at one of the addresses above. Thank you.

I was not aware that the Ultimate Thayer site had been down at all. I've received emails from it almost daily. Sorry that happened to you. I love Canadians!

The site's up now.

I just want to say that even though you have missed the 15 Dec sale price deadline..."Total price after December 15, 2009 will be $450 plus $10 shipping"...this tome is well worth the full price...! I have seen the photographs that will be in the finished product. If you are like I,then you have been burned enough buying magic and magic books before publication...but save your money now to purchase when the book is on the street if you want to wait...I wouldn't wait too long.... Phil ET AL have done a great job with this tribute to Thayer Magic.

Both Bob Albo and I will be at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. We'll have bound proofs of Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the Ultimate Thayer books that are at the printer now.

Hope to see you!
