I hope this is the right category to post this question. I'm interested in studying about old magic books and found a list in the Magicpedia. Here's the list:
Henry R. Evans, Bibliography of Natural Magic and Prestidigitation (1897)
H. J. Burlingame, Bibliotecha Magica contained within "Tricks in Magic, Illusions and Mental Phenomena, Vol. III" (1898)
Johann George Graesse Bibliotecha Magica et Pneumatica
A facsimile of the original edition published in Leipzig by W. Englemann, 1843, listing more than 3000 published items on magic
Ellis Stanyon, A Bibliography of Conjuring and Kindred Arts (1899)
Sidney W. Clarke and Adolphe Blind, The Bibliography of Conjuring and Kindred Deceptions (1920)
Harry Price, Short Title Catalogue of Works on Psychical Research, Spiritualism, Magic (1929)
James B. Findlay, Scottish Conjuring Bibliography (1951)
Victor Farelli, Magical Bibliographies; A Guide (1953)
Trevor H. Hall, A Bibliography of Books on Conjuring in English from 1580 to 1850 (1957)
Edgar Heyl, A Contribution to Conjuring Bibliography, English Language 1580-1850 (1963)
Heyl intended in this bibliography to record all conjuring books not described in Hall's Bilbiography of Books on Conjuring in English from 1580-1850. He resurveyed all the conjuring bibliographies available including visits to the Library of Congress, the Peabody Library and the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
Raymond Tool Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring 1581-1876 (1976)
Raymond Tool Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring Volume Two 1569-1876 (1976)
James B Alfredson and George L Daily , Bibliography of Conjuring Periodicals in English 1791-1983 (1986).
contains over 7,500 entries of Magic Periodicals in the English language
Stephen A. Fernandes, Magic Magazines of the Second Millennium: A Bibliography of English-language Conjuring Periodicals, August 1791- January 2000 (2000)
2,000 more titles of Magic Periodicals.
I have the Raymond Toole Stott books, but was wondering if someone could give me some advice on which books I should get next? Or if any of them I shouldn't get (for whatever reason, if you could advice that'd be much appreciated too) Sorry, but I'm new to all of this!
