Special and Named Printed Collections


This is a collection of over 300 books, pamphlets and periodicals by Scottish magicians or about magic as practised in Scotland. It was assembled over the course of a lifetime by Jim Cuthbert, a practising magician, member of the Paisley Magic Circle and former President of the Scottish Association of Magic Societies. Most of the items in the collection were published after 1900, though there are some books on conjuring from the 1830s and 1840s published in Glasgow. Other subjects covered include card and rope tricks, wizardry, sorcery and spin-offs from magic shows on television.
