Dr. Daley's Jacobs Ladder

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Hey guys,

I've been trying to research an effect by Dr. Daley called "Jacobs Ladder". In the book "Magic From the Soul", Rene Lavand states on p. 74 that the 2nd phase of his presentation "The Story of Victorio Pardu" is this "Jacobs Ladder" by Dr. Daley.

I also saw it listed in the contents of a magazine on Lybrary.com but for the life of me can't recall which magazine and searching that site has proven fruitless thus far.

I do not have "Mysteries of My Life" so I don't know if it's referenced in there as well.

Any insights would be welcome ,

Sincerely,
Dave
