Anything from Mr. Dai Vernon is more than worth the money. The knowledge you will get in return will more than quadruple the price of the book. Anything from Dai Vernon is a great investment to add to your collection.

If you have the Inner Secrets books (now published by L & L in one Volume) or the Dai Vernon Book of Magic, then you should know that this book will be worth your time and money. If not, I suggest you pick those up first.

My Card Magic is based on what I learned from the books and other sources about Dai Vernon's magic.

I personally spent two weeks with pofessor together with Larry Jennings when they lectured in Japan. I was so lucky I worked as their interpreter.

In my mind, Dai Vernon is my teacher of Magic. After I retire from recent work, I want to gather all Vernon's materials and compile a book on Dai Vernon's Magic.

It is my dream.

I feel, with a sigh, that time has past as I find this kind of question often. Please don't forget that today's magic is standing on the efforts of masters like Dai Vernon.

Hideosan,

this brings something up in mind..
I only had the pleasue once to spend an evening in entire privacy with Dai Vernon way back in 1964.

But that is not what I had in mind to talk about.

Many many years back one thing did strike me..and that was when Dai Vernon (probably for the very first time) was in Europe or at least Germany, the year was 1954.

I was a kid at that time but saw his apperance on TV,as well as Fred Kaps stageappearance for the very first time..

DV. did his cards to pocket and his 6 ring routine as well as the interlocked production of cards, at least that was what they showed on the tele..

Some of the people having attending Triberg in 1954, I later got friends with and got interesting chats with..one of them was a guy unknown to most, but nevertheless a great thinker re magic and a great close-up magician.. Carlhorst Meier from Nürnberg/Germany.

We meet at several conventions -he had always a deck of cards in his hands, and always borrowed my cigars to smoke Smile - and when he visited my hometown (Stuttgart) he always adviced me and I came to his hotel and we talked and did magic, as well as I visited his home when being in Nürnberg..

At that convention in Triberg, he worked on stage doing a cigarette act, and looking at this later, it was a lot of body turns, aso. but nicely done.

What did strike me, that not only he, but a couple of other, actually *all* having just had a session and being together with DV had improoved their magic considerably and actually could be counted as some of the best in what they did, especially of course, close-up.

He (DV) somehow did influence all of them greatly by his thinkng and by making his thinking available just through *chatting* and a few demonstrations..

Regarding your protject to put *all* of DVs work collected together in one (that is not possible) but in a few *collected* works, I'm afraid, it would almost be impossible, due to getting copyright from the various owner of the copyright of the various books.
You most certainly would have to spend the rest of your life to get through a such work, nevertheless, I'd like to quote one of my favourite sayings from Albert Goshman:

*We all live in a world of dreams, that's what makes living worthwhile*..

Quotet out of memory..
Good luck and I really wish and would support what you have in mind..
Learn a few things well.....this life is not long enough to do everything.....

( Words of wisdom from Albert Goshman ...it paid off for him - it might
as well for YOU!!!- My own magic is styled after that motto... Smile )

Hello Werner-san,

Thank you for the nice story about your experience with regard to Dai Vernon. So it was then Leweis Ganson authored Vernon Book. I know he influenced European magicians. (He also influenced Japanese magicians very much).

I will wait til 2042 when all Vernon material becomes public domain. I will be 99 yeas old. Until then, I will gather and write as much as possible. My father is now 101 years old and I am very healthy like my father. So it is a possible dream.

Smile Hehehe.. it's always good to have plans..

DV did, he at least wanted to pass the 100 mark and he almost did...
Starting in time with that project of yours, does give it a chance..
Get some kids and they'll at least then finish your work on this..
Still, a good plan and worth to support..
Learn a few things well.....this life is not long enough to do everything.....

I have all four volumes of this series and I feel that volume 1 is the best. I think that it has the best card effects in the series, and a couple of outstanding coin effects.
