The earlier Thayer catalogs are VERY COLLECTIBLE and HARD TO FIND.In fact, we could not find another Vol.4 No. 9 currently available for sale.This one is in used condition for sure, but still very readable!The catalog looks orange in the product photo- it is really more of a tan color.
Thayer Magic Company was founded by Floyd G. Thayer in 1907 and made magical apparatus into the 1930's. The Thayer slogan was "Quality Magic", thus the title of this catalog.In 1942, the William Larsen Sr. purchased Floyd Thayer’s Magic Company, but continued to do business under the Thayer name until 1950.
This catalog details 87 pages of the many magical delights that were available from the legendary Thayer Magic Company.The illustrations are wonderful, and the enticing descriptions are fun to read.
Many magicians collect old magic catalogs as a reference.What better way to learn about the classic or long-forgotten illusions!
Also includes a Shipment Notification.Apparently, the former owner of this catalog had tried to purchase an item from Thayer that was out of stock.The notification sent to him by the company is included!
