Hi friends:

I need to look for sources to read about Edward Victorñs magic and life.

I know there is a book by Rae Hammond, but I need more.

Anyone could help me?

All the best magic,

The Rae Hammond book is called "The Magic of Edward Victor's Hands" and is very good. There is also a trilogy called "Magic of the Hands." Because of the similarity in the titles, these are often confused as the same books, but they are not. The trilogy can, I believe, still be purchased as three separate softbound volumes, or all three in one hardback published, if memory serves, by Richard Kaufman. IMO, the tilogy has a lot more bang for the buck than the Hammond book, although I still think the Hammond book is very good.

Virtually any major magic dealer should be able to get you the books.

Thanks Scott for the reply. Instead of these books, is there anything else out there?

All the best magic,

I know that there's a Dover reprint called "Classic Card Tricks", which I believe has the card items from the "magic of the hands" trilogy.

Anything... everything.

Next year I have a magic meeting envolving different aspects of magic. One of them is the biography and effects of a classic magician. The selected to next year is Edward Victor, so I would like to help the person who cordinated the work about Victor, as far as I can with as much information I could collect.

Thanks in advance.

All the best magic,

Then don't forget to learn Edward Victor's 'Eleven Cards Trick'. I think it was his signature trick. It's in the Hammond book.
