Despite its immediate association to a type of reference book, the word “thesaurus” specifically refers to a treasury or storehouse. Roger’s Thesaurus by Roger Crosthwaite and Justin Higham is a storehouse of awesome card magic. This massive book collects together sleights along with routines of every kind and type, from the informal to the impromptu, the philosophy and psychology of magic, as well as anecdotes and a host of credits and references. Subtitled “A Modern Treatise of the Art of Card Magic,” Roger’s Thesaurus is a rich storehouse, indeed.
So, who is Roger Crosthwaite? First and foremost, he’s a clergyman with very impressive educational credentials (he studied psychology at Durham and theology at Cambridge before his ordination into the Church of England in 1965). At the same time, however, he was demonstrating his equally impressive skills with a pack of cards, contributing a series of articles on card magic to Harry Stanley’s The Gen magazine. He also won the British Magical Society Close-Up Competition in 1964 and the Magic Circle Close-Up Competition in 1980.
Besides Roger’s own contributions to his book, Roger’s Thesaurus contains top-notch card material from some of the world's best magicians, including Jack Avis, Gordon Bruce, Peter Duffie, Cy Endfield, Trevor Lewis, Simon Lovell, Edward Marlo, Chris Power, Roy Walton, Herb Zarrow and many others. There are 75 tricks and over 90 original sleights and subtleties in Roger’s Thesaurus, meticulously described and clearly illustrated with nearly 260 illustrations and more than 30 photographs.
This is card magic of the highest caliber. As Jack Avis said in his introduction, “Read this book with deep interest in the knowledge that within its pages you will find not only new effects but a careful attention to their technical detail and the psychology that lies behind them."
Roger’s Thesaurus is regularly $19.95, but for a limited time, you can add this terrific compilation of amazing card magic to your digital library right now for just $9.95.
