If Robbins were ever to release a Tarbell Volume 9 or 10 what would you hope to see in it?

Given that some of the material in Vol 8 was flimsy compared to the others (and really, how do you top the protean work done by our friend Harry for Vol. 7?), would there even be a market for Vol. 9? Would magicians give up pet effects for inclusion in the volume as was done in the past?

Harry .. if you read this post, when you did Vol 7. were you given a template to follow? Or was it pretty much free-hand?

I for one would love to see such a new compilation -- providing they were able to secure the right editor.

what does everyone else think?

Not sure why any new compilation of tricks would have to have the Tarbell name, unless it was thought it might be a selling point. 

Apart from Harry's volume (probably the best for close uppers) all the other material came from the original course pamphlets, and not in the same order. Volume 8 was some of the original stuff which had been left out of the earlier bound volumes, so no wonder it wasn't up to parr. 

Would magicians give up their pet effects for another volume? Probably not lol, they hope to sell them with a DVD.

Of course, another old book of supposed 'pet effects' was J.G. Thompson's "My Best" which is another Robbins have the rights to and can be picked up pretty cheaply.

Those who merely want the Tarbell Course for reference purposes should note Vol 7. is NOT included in the pdf versions of the course.

Yeah.. I was just thinking out loud. I have always loved books compiled of various effects from various magicians themed in some manner. The Tarbell books were unique in that they touched on cards, coins, mentalistism, silks, ropes, illusions ... the whole “magical magilla.”

There’s not a lot out there today that does that.

Having said that, there is so much “forgotten” material out there.. who needs the “new” stuff? Reread Apocolypse or The Phoenix or Magick or The Jinx or .... you know what I mean.....


Maybe I just answered my own question!
