Greatest magic books ever written

Hi,

Does anyone know what issue of Genii included a list of the greatest magic books of all time and had various lists by other magicians? I think it was around 10 years ago.

Thank you.

Hi Jimmie,

I guess there was a mix-up. I responded to the email you sent me with a $50 bid and asked if it was a one time bid. I never heard back from you for some reason. Sorry to have missed out. Let me know if the winner doesn't follow thru.

Re: Belly Stripper deck

Hi,

Here is an update. I have been told by several fellow magicians that this deck may have been created for a trick by George Sands. He may have produced several of these decks after being taught the technique by John Scarne. Any thoughts?
