Greetings,

I would like to find and purchase a source that has Roger Slywester's move published in it?

Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Any video of the move?
I believe its Roger Sylvester

"# A display/stretch was Roger Sylvester's in Hierophant No. 3, march 1970, page 122, The Professor Incubus. "

Actually, it's "Sylwester", and the above reference is correct. I believe one can still find The Hierophant in a series of perfect bond books. This one is in the 2nd book, which contains numbers 3 and 4.

I was only able to find it by typing "sylvester", and the Genii Link says Sylvester. Are you saying that he used Sylwester? Which might be a German translation?

It is Sylwester, and Roger is a fellow Lutheran Pastor. We met when we were both in Eugene. Wonderfully nice guy, and a giving heart.

Is this also published in "Three Ropes and a Baby"?

It is detailed in my book "Give a Magician Enough Rope." It is a great display, move... the best.

I don't understand the "three ropes and a baby" part of your question, Richard Sanders is not that old.

I don't get it, if it was a joke, as I am in a very long meeting... I had heard the Sanders teaches it in the back of the book, with credit to Roger. But just confirming that.

but here is the link:

Are you saying that Richard Sanders gives credit to Mr Sylwester as the inspiration for "three ropes and a baby"?

No, I am asking (and this is what I heard, so asking for confirmation)....

In the back of the booklet, "Three Ropes and a Baby," Richard teaches this move, giving credit to Sylwester.

So just asking if someone has it if this is indeed the case.

Hi RevJohn,

The first publication of this handling was in the Hierophant.

Bruce Cervon used it. James Lewis used it. Pete Biro used it. I used it.

It is a wonderful handling.

Enjoy the search!

Regards,

Paul Green

Stopped by the Magic Apple in Studio city when I was visiting the castle, and they had a copy of Pete's book for sale.

Great stuff of course!

Finally got around to learning this display from Pete's book.

What a nice move!! It looks so good in Roger's hands.

Thanks for including it here, Pete!

As far as video/DVD resources, it can be found on James Lewis Million Dollar Magic or my In the Trenches DVD.

I talked to James Lewis and he has no plans to make any more of his videos, so go for Paul Green's... tons of great working stuff there.

Of the three descriptions I've seen, the one on the James Lewis video is by far the best looking and most clearly described. As I remember it, he displays the three ropes hanging very naturally between the hands, with the short rope at the top and the long rope at the bottom. Both the Richard Sanders and the Pete Brio descriptions have the ropes crossed over each over in the display. The description in the "Three Ropes and a Baby" manuscript has a misprint or two, making it difficult to see how to do the stretch. The description in Pete Biro's book has the ropes sort of twisted between the hands (the long rope is on the top in one hand, the bottom in the other). But it's been a long time since I've seen the James Lewis version, and I may not be remembering it exactly right.
