From there, he built up a larger act from the later lessons. Eventually, he received backing to put on a full illusion stage show -- and he built that stage show from lessons in this course.
And he never forgot the lessons on showmanship, acting, publicity, advertising He would later speak of how he took Dr Tarbell's samples and used them almost verbatim! He had one of the most successful acts to date, and his name was synonymous with entertainment in South America. Thirty-nine bucks? Each lesson is more valuable than almost every single item in the Lybrary. Tuesday 08 November, An excellent download.
Not only searchable but highly portable. I've used this version more than the volumes that came later. For anyone in magic you can't go wrong with Tarbell. Two words This is awesome.
Now, the other feature that I thought was extremely cool is the Digital Facsimile feature. Hit the digital facsimile button. Now you looking at a digital scan of the actual page. It must have been a daunting task to scan all of those pages and is certainly worthy of an honorable mention. Overall, the quality is great, the technology is well done and what can I say about the search engine except brilliant! All of that for 37 bucks, and you have quite an impressive combination at a very affordable price.
Tuesday 06 September, Most of you are familiar with The Tarbell Course in Magic and many of you, as I do, have the set of books put out comprised of the material found in the original course plus a couple other volumes put together after the death of Tarbell. For those not hip to Tarbell here is a quick history.
Back in the 's a publisher wanted Houdini to produce a course in magic that would be mailed to students in increments. As often happens Houdini didn't mind having his name associated with the project but didn't want to do the work himself. The gentlemen behind the project then asked Harland Tarbell, a magician and artist, if he would produce the magic course for them.
Harlan did as requested, Houdini was out of the picture, and the course was released as the Tarbell Course. The methods of advertizing and how the course was ran is very interesting in itself.
The benefit of the Tarbell Course was the student would receive their work for the week and progress through the courses. The quality of the art and instructions as well as the routines themselves were very high and this is evidenced today by many request for information being followed with "It's in Tarbell". If you were to really get down to business and want to learn magic the Tarbell Course is, and I doubt anyone with knowledge will disagree, a must for the collection of any serious magician.
I've read the complete set a couple times and cannot count how often I've turned to them for information. Tarbell wrote his course over a period of years and he had contribution from everyone from Houdini to Dai Vernon. In the later volumes written by Harry Loryne and NOT in the ebook version as you'll note later, which is no biggie even has a routine by a young Davino, later to become David Copperfield.
The course covers the obvious such as sleight of hand, cards, coins, rope, egg magic, chemical magic, silks, escapes, mentalism, and also has a good number of illusions that are often the foundation of those you see on stage today. You will find some of the material dated, some out and out unperformable routine wise with todays sensativities.
That is not a bad thing because if you have some creativity, and you should, you can take and should take the routines and make them fit your performance style and character. The course also includes some excellent essays on magic history and presentation, some of the best I've read.
I think I've made it clear that I think Tarbell is a fantastic resource for the magician and I prize my set. Now let us look at the eBook version. This is my first experience with eBooks, brought to you by lybrary. That is a good thing because they are giving new life to books that deserve to be read and used and in a format that is perfect for magic.
I say perfect because these books, for the most part, are segmented and rather than reading line a novel you go to a certain item and review it and look at the illustrations.
The Tarbell Course on eBook is based on the original correspondence course and not the books. The books are laid out a bit differently but the eBook is just as you would have received it back in when you were a magi in training. You get to look at the original text, meaning the bad font and all that, or the cleaner modern font version. All with Tarbells excellent illustrations.
I've never done the eBook thing before but after 10 minutes of hacking around the computer I got the ebook up and running. The course can be accessed in order as mailed back in da day or by title as broken down into catagory. There are some parts from the original 60 lessons that you will not find anywhere in the eight book volumes.
The 60 lessons are laid out with a lot of thought. In one sentence a unique book sitting on the peak of the pile of magic literature. Table of contents.
