Tarbell wrote at least a dozen other books: a few short booklets on magic, many separately marketed tricks, and lots of small books published by the Dennison Company of Chicago on Chalk Talk.

Somewhere I have a piece of videotape of Tarbell

doing his seeing with his fingertips act It was a

real slow booring act but that was a long time

ago ( 1930's )" How are you going to keep them

down on the farm ?".....Mike
