Project: Magic Inventors

The Learned Pig Project Magic Collection is a series of old public domain magic books produced on CD-ROM media in pdf file format that allows magicians to read, search and print. The biggest drawback is that the 3 CDs don't have a label that identifies what is on which CD. To make it easier for myself to know which CD I wanted, I compliled the following indices from each of the currently available CDs in the collection. I will be expanding on this by linking this list of book titles to the separate table of contents for each book. Note: Some of the titles are also available on-line from The Learned Pig Web Site.
