In 1968, Al Koran's Professional Presentations was published by Harry Stanley in London. This highly sought after book has now been reprinted by Martin Breese. Here it all is. The Gold Medallion, Ring on Stick, Birthday Card Trick, Book Test, Torn & Restored Cigarette Paper, Black Magic, Encore Card Stab, Doodles, Princess Card Trick Plus, Nap Hand Deal, Double Thought, Card Prediction, Sure Fire Force, The Flying Ring (today known as Ring Flight), The Pendulum Tells, Double Deal, and the Note Under the Cup. Enough great magic in this one book alone to perform an entire show. A classic!!

A Letter from Hugh Miller
What a delight. Nearly an hour ago I opened the packet containing the copies of Professional Presentations. I slid one out, and I've only now put it down to e-mail you.
If only Al could have laid eyes on this sheer elevation of the book. The very feel of it is sumptuous. For a magic book, the layout is as clean and inviting as any I've seen, with the illustrations (superb, by the way) elegantly placed to make everything crystal clear. I've re-read most of the text already and I tell you sincerely, if I were a magician holding this edition and skimming the material for the first time, I'd get the old tingly tip-off that I was handling gold. A fine production, Martin, and although you've been through a few circles of hell with the printers and binders, I hope you're glad you pressed on with the project.
I'm grateful for the copies, and I'll treasure them. Many, many thanks.
All good wishes,
