Foreword

THE “Sympathetic Silks” is in Magic a classic Effect which has been popular in the programmes of some of our leading Magicians.

Those who have been fortunate enough to see Edward Proudlock perform his original version of“ The Sympathetic Silks” have witnessed a Magical Symphony in Silk, an Effect with six large one-yard-square Silks of varying duplicated colours that, in a fashion which conveys real mystery, knot and unknot themselves; one lot at a distance and seemingly securely tied, or mysteriously minus their knots—free or tied one in sympathy with the other.

Edward Proudlock’s Sympathetic Silks are a joy to behold, no less to the Magician than to the uninitiated beholder. Anyone who could include Edward Proudlock’s version and working in his act or programme could indeed regard himself as extremely fortunate, and without question the Effect would be regarded by any class of audience as Real Magic.

That Edward Proudlock has now been persuaded by that other good friend of ours, Edward Bagshawe, to give to his Brother Magicians the full secrets, details and working of “The Sympathetic Silks” as presented by him, is not only a gesture of infinite fraternalness but gives to every reader, so that Magic is the richer and that he may make the fullest use of it, one of the finest Effects in the whole of Magic.

Thanks, many thanks, Edward Proudlock and Edward Bagshawe too.

BRUNEL WHITE.
