Please guys do any of you have a copy of Genii Volume 18 No. 1 1953. I tried to get hold of a single copy but alas --no. I am looking for a copy of the article on page 16 by Jay Palmer. It is on Magic Pitchers or the Magic Kettle Many thanks Allen Tipton UK

That's a nice article too :)

Jay Palmer in the article states he had a previous article 'From Keg to Kettle,' published in the December (1951) issue of THE SPHINX

And were you aware the Palmer's article was published in five sections that went through March of 1954?

I am now Joe. Someone sent me all the articles. Brilliant, Have not bought the digital version because I have so many Geniis I doubt if I would scan through it, now, at this age!
Also I still am not happy reading text on Screen. I have been brought up the last 75 years to use a real book.
The Sphinx with 'From Keg To Kettle' I have in my collection of Sphinx magazines

I LOVE reading Genii on paper, but the best thing about Ask Alexander (free with Genii subscription) is how it allows me to FIND stuff in Genii that would be otherwise unfindable.

After finding it, there are plenty of options for reading: it can be read onscreen, printed out, or (for the last 15 years) I can pull the paper issue off my shelf.

I'm really looking forward to the upcoming new sharing and usability features!

The online Genii is an invaluable resource. Whenever I can't remember where I put down the article I was reading a couple of months ago, I can always locate it online. it is a lifesaver for the dedicated disorganized, like me.
