Teral Garrett Perpetual Lists -- Question for the Old-Timers and Collectors

Discuss the historical aspects of magic, including memories, or favorite stories.

Postby magicam » 12/10/12 06:30 PM

Over the years, Teral Garrett, a Kentucky magic dealer, issued his perpetual lists, which were mimeographed on both sides of 8 x 11 paper (frequently on colored paper), and consecutively paged. Usually, he issued 4 to 8 pages in a mailing.

I know he issued at least 333 pages of these lists. Did he issue more?

Any help here?

Don't know about that, but just quoted him in the DeLand book.

The latest pages I can find referenced are "Pages 328-331" in 1968, if that helps.

The Checklist of Conjuring Catalogs by Burton Sperber, has six entries of the perpetual list.
Aug.15, 1964, 303 pgs.
Dec. 1, 1964, 304 pgs.
Sept.30, 1966 321 pgs.
Nov. 25, 1966 325 pgs.
March 25, 1968 329 pages
an issue with ND 314 pgs.
The issue with no date follows the March 25th date in the Sperber catalog.
