Also! I'm a dope for not putting this here as well.

I'm looking for recommendations on books about the history of stage magic.

More details here: http://community.livejournal.com/bookish/1815492.html

Quick read that probably isn't what you're looking for: Jim Ottaviani's Levitation: Physics And Psychology In The Service Of Deception, about the invention of the levitation trick in the early 20th century.

Jim's work is all science-based non-fiction and fantastic. Jim himself is, presumably, science-based (carbon-based, at the very least) and also fantastic.
