The Unpublished Notebook of Adrian Plate
This handwritten compendium was never published and contains over 400 forgotten effects and routines of all kinds by some of magic's greatest names: Houdini, Harry Kellar, Alexander Herrmann, Buatier de Kolta, Chung Ling Soo, Servais Le Roy, Ten Ichi, Charles Morritt, Felicien Trewey, Robert Heller, Verbeck, Charles Bertram, and others. There are even some handwritten notes by Houdini himself!
Plate was one of the top card performers of his time and preserved the latest flourishes, sleights, and routines in the copious writings you'll find here.
Performers of all genres will find amazing material among these hundreds of effects: mentalism, manipulation, coin work, illusions, stage effects, and more!
The pages have been digitally edited for optimum reading of these reproductions of Plate's handwritten explanations, many illustrated with his own line drawings.
All effects are accessible through a complete index of this CD of PDFs.
"A fascinating record of magic in the opening years of the twentieth century, written by a man knowledgeable, well connected, and with a healthy creative streak of his own. His notes are seasoned with bits of information that will help students of magic's history fill gaps and trace the evolution of ideas."
- Stephen Minch

It had scratches and would not play when I got it. The replacement was the same way. I sent them both back. Now penguin won't answer my call or emails to give me my money back.
