At a convention recently I bought several packages of notes I supose by Milo and roger on different illusions on getting them home and looking at them they seem to be pages from there personal files?
they are partly types/printed and partly hand written with hand drawings (many crudly done)
Some are marked "Milo's copy" others things like"Updated copy october 22nd 1997.... use this copy dicard all others" also there are many Postcards with milo, roger and duck and several actual photo's

the detailed notes include

the living robot
Zig zag without a cabinet
Asrah duck
visibly walking through a mirror
dragon ball (this has a note on one page saying Dear stephen this page is just a note for you and not for publication I just thought you might like to know how I got the title for this illusion

famous lota bowl closing to act
revolving head vannish with b@w photo
head on the tray of fruit with actual photo's from greece and a newspaper clip from a Stuttgart newspaper
1987

new versin of above (rogers last invention)1997
Our most famous trick
shooting a magician from a cannon (milo copy)
Insatantanious vannish of an elephant
Dracula
bride of Dracula
Frankenstien
Phantom of the opera
side show
the nervous balloon
the mummys tomb
the invunerable camel
the magic acrobats
the flying rug
the floating elephant
the inca horror
sun moon and star
the dragon princess
torture spikes of morroco

I bought these not really knowing what I was buying I just thought OK milo and roger many illusions cant go wrong at £5.00 though now I have them I am thinking that perhaps I have some thing of much more historical value?

can anyone help shed any light as to what they might be
thanks
