Harlan Tarbell was the preeminent magician and magic teacher from the 1920s to his death in 1960. He taught classes all over North America, touching the lives of countless magicians - professional, amateur, and beginner. There is no one in any magic club who has not at some time or other learned from the legacy of Dr. Harlan Tarbell. There are many who lay the credit for their entire professions to the "Tarbell Course", the 7-volume storehouse of magical knowledge, painstakingly illustrated in great detail, with text so crystal clear in simple English that students were doing the tricks almost as they read about them. Dr. Tarbell had two great natural talents that fit perfectly with his acquired talent of magic -- he drew like an artist and wrote with amazing clarity.

Note regarding The Chinese Tape Through Neck, Volume 6, Lesson 81, page 324:
Mai-ling, daughter of DeYip Loo, reports that the Chinese magician whom Tarbell mistakenly refers to as "Louie De Nipp" on page 327, was her father, DeYip Loo. Loo had seen the effect performed by a young boy in Japan, where Loo was stationed after World War II. Loo figured it out, and years later showed it to Tarbell at a meeting of the Chicago Magician's Roundtable at the Drake Hotel. Tarbell immediately wrote down the effect and drew the sketches used in illustrating the article, naming it "Chinese Tape Through Neck." Tarbell's version, published in 1954, is a silken tape version of Japanese magician Ishida Tenkai 's "Rope Decapitation" which was published in the August 1938 issue of The Sphinx.
