Qty: 1   



1978, FIRST EDITION, of Horace Bennett's book of routines you can do standing.  Published by Jerry Mentzer.     

Spiral bound.  84 pages

Back in the late 1970's, the massive influence of Slydini led to all kinds of routines that required the magician to be seated while performing.   And of course, lots of books full of those seated routines.   They were full of great magic, but the seated magician became so prevalent that Horace Bennett decided to title his book "On Your Feet" -- so that it was clear this book had routines that did not require you to sit down!

Although there are a couple of club/stage stand-up items, most of the items in the book are best when done close-up.  But because they are done "on your feet", they are very practical for strolling magic and table hopping.

Some of my favorites:    a fun borrowed ring off wand, where the spectator's ring ends up linking with the performers ring; a take on the sliding knot effect; a really good handling of the Jardin Ellis ring; and Bennett's interesting routines for both Sponge Balls and the classic coin assembly.

see photo of the Table of Contents and sample pages to get an idea of what good stuff you will find within this excellent, under-rated book.

CONDITION NOTES:    previously owned, but in very good condition, -- all pages are clean, tight and unmarked.  Spiral binding is intact, no cracks or breaks.   Cover and corners have some edge wear.
