The Essential Stewart James By Stewart James and Allan Slaight


Canadian Stewart
James was the most prolific inventor of magic in the
twentieth century. Where most magicians invent a
handful of magic routines during the course of their
life, Stewart James created over one thousand. His
prodigious output has been recorded in two mammoth
publications totalling over 2,700 pages. James' vast
body of work has now been distilled to 50 of his
"greatest tricks," The Essential Stewart James. Allan
Slaight, co-editor of Stewart James In Print and
author of The James File, asked dozens of Stewart
James' aficionados including Max Maven, Michael Weber,
Bob Farmer, Stephen Minch, Bill Goodwin, Gordon Bean,
David Ben, Roy Walton, Charles Reynolds, Gabe Fajuri,
Steve Beam, and Peter Duffie among others, to whittle
over 1,000 of James’ creations down to their fifty
favorite, in other words, the essential Stewart James.
For those who own the earlier Stewart James tomes
(Stewart James In Print: The First Fifty Years and The
James File) but are intimated by the size and scope of
the material, this book is for you! The Essential
Stewart James serves as a tourist guide through the
land of James. For those who are encountering this
wily Canadian wizard for the first time, this book
serves as a primer to the brilliance of the man, his
methods and his magic. 199 pages, hardbound. $35.00
