Review

The Bammo Ten Card Deal Dossier is a masterful work of scholarship. Farmer’s arrangement, even when it is forced to diverge from the overall plan, is coherent and logical.

Mike Close reviews the Bammo Ten Card Deal Dossier. To Bob Farmer: “You tip more sound information in a throw-away sentence than most guys do in a two-hour DVD.”

“… Bob Farmer has collected the best of them, perhaps almost all of them, together in this volume. You are spoiled for choice in this 400-page encyclopedia..." - David Britland

How Gamblers Win is a classic of early cheating literature. On first publication in 1865, the author’s name was given as Gerritt M. Evans, and was republished in 1868 in a slightly expanded edition and Evans’ name was removed from the title page.

Stewart James in Print and The James File are two of the largest magic books ever published (the James File is actually two volumes, but I consider it a single work). They comprise over 2700 pages and over 1000 tricks.

Stewart James was an incredible magic creator. Tricks like Miraskill, Further Than That, Sefalaljia, the Love-sick Tennis Ball, and Jamesway Poker Deal indicated a mind that did not work like most others.

If you are one of the vanishing breed of magicians that likes to read, you should immediately mortgage your house, rent a truck with a dolly, drive down to your local magic shop, and haul both Stewart James in Print and The James File to your house.
