My quick check just now of the Magic Inc. website shows the following:
"Malini Egg Bag Ala Charlie Miller -- Price $30.00"
"A Malini Egg Bag is like no other egg bag in the world. It's small, made of heavy black silk crepe, and we defy anybody to explain how it's made. You will defy anyone to explain how it works---Charlie provided a clever routine, which together with the ingenious construction of the bag makes for breathtaking magic!The Effect? A little black silk bag and an egg are displayed. The egg, put into the bag, vanishes, so that the spectators, feeling inside the bag, know that it's gone. They hold the performer's wrists to prevent dirty work, but the egg appears back in the bag. And so on, with variations never before possible with an egg bag. Definitely a trick for the discriminating magician. Great pros like Fred Kaps, Ken Brooke, Jay Marshall and dozens of others featured this trick regularly in their acts. The special bag and instruction booklet are included. Custom latex egg sold separately for $15.00 each. Ken Brooke & Friends on the Malini Egg Bag--Manuscript--add $5.00.
"Ken Brooke & Friends on Malini Egg Bag -- Price $7.50"
"The Malini Egg Bag is a beautiful prop sold by Magic Inc., after Charlie Miller designed the bag. Professionals around the world use this item and regard it as one of their finer tricks. Ken Brooke, who knows a good trick when he sees one, went further with his bag, working out new ideas and routines, talking it over with top close-up people overseas, and as a result they produced this book. Then Pete Biro made rough sketches and notes that he in turn gave to Sid Lorraine. Sid did the marvelous illustrations that take you thru every word of the Manuscript. The Malini Egg Bag is a great trick - Ken Brooke's ideas embellish and adorn it to make it even greater. The Ken Brooke Book-$5.00 The Malini Egg Bag, with Charlie Miller routines, eggs, etc.-$20.00."
Note the discrepancies: Is the Malini Egg Bag from Magic Inc. $20.00 or $30.00?
Is the Brooke Malini book $5.00, or $7.50, or $5.00 only when purchased with the Malini Egg Bag? Does an egg come with the Egg Bag? Is the advertised Custom Latex egg at $15.00 a replacement egg if you have lost yours, or is it different from the egg(s) (presumably) supplied with the Malini Egg Bag?
Any any rate, Magic Inc. in Chicago has Malini Egg Bags in black silk crepe for either $20 or $30.00, with the Charlie Miller routine included, and the Ken Brook book for either $5.00 or $7.50...
