Pallbearers Review By Karl Fulves 3-book Set Premiere Magic Source 1st Edition:
L&L Publishing printed this first-edition set of ten volumes in three books, THE PALLBEARERS REVIEW, in 1993. The author, Karl Fulves, makes full use of his extensive network of relationships in the world of magic, and of course avails himself of Joseph K. Schmidt's expert illustrations. The contributors to his books have become a Who's Who in the genre, and the last frame of the gallery provides a shot of many of them; a partial list also follows this description.
These books are clean and sound with moderate evidence of reading. I note a ding to the spinehead of the first and third volumes which do not affect the integrity of the books. Mercifully, I see no marking or provenance. Some cursory shopping indicates that comparable sets have fetched over $300 in recent sales--Enjoy!
I'll box and ship these for $5.95 and I combine lots for a dollar more after the initial shipping fee. Insurance can be made available.
Karl Fulves took overThe New Phoenixmagazine from Don Tanner. He published three more issues and then at issue 400 in October 1965 stated "The bird will be fondly laid to rest." He then started a new magazine calledThe Pallbearers Reviewwhich continued until 1975.
He also started 1967 until 1976.
In 1970, Joseph K. Schmidt submitted Fulves a coin flourish complete withillustrations. Thecontributionwas published in Volume 5, Issue #10 ofPallbearers. Fulves was very impressed with Schmidt's artistic abilities and, coincidentally, was looking for an artist to illustrate some of the lengthier routines. He asked Schmidt to illustrate an effect called Canterbury Cups and Schmidt agreed. Fulves and Schmidt's relationship grew. Fulves was the first person to refer to Schmidt as an "artist". Schmidt has illustrated over Fulves, including Swindle Sheet, Cheat Sheet, Rigmarole, and Verbatim.
Shortly after concluding Pallbearers and Epilogue he announced the birth of a new periodical,The ChroniclesLimited to 36 issues, The Chronicles took from 1978 to 1988 to complete, and during those ten years, some of the finest close-up magic of the period was explained in its pages.
Fulves published many more periodicals over the years including CHARLATAN, UNDERWORLD accompanied by FINE PRINT, INTERLOCUTOR, and MIDNIGHT MAGIC MONTHLY (13 issues, a complete file of which is virtually unobtainable).
