Hey guys, listen I'm compiling as much info as possible on the origins of all kind of magic and mentalism and more

if anyone can point me in the right direction id be very appreciative,

I'm trying to set up a site with a full history of magic, magic theory on the human mind, misdirection and performance

so any help would be appreciated the end product will be something very beneficial for all in magic

Can you elaborate on that,

Milbourne Christopher was an avid Magical Historian. I would check into his books.

Hey Dionsiseire,

Can you find me a nice copy of Seamus Burke's From the Earth to a Star: My Incredible Life? It was published in Dublin and copies surface there.

As to your question, the way you phrased the scope of your project, you are undertaking a HUGE task. You might want to look at a few websites (links below) to see what's out there.

Good luck with your project.

Clay
