Magic and allied arts sale books - as low as $5.00 each

Postby Dan Bradbury » December 4th, 2017, 3:07 pm

Greetings magic book fans! Here is a list of paperback book titles--both regular size (12mo & 8vo) and large size (4to) paperbacks and every now and then a hardbound book, DVD, audio, video cassette, or even a prop or trick in the mix. Generally, all are in “Good” to “As New” condition—a few may have former owner names, stickers, etc. and we seldom note those defects—also a few of the books are “ex library” and when that’s the case we’ll let you know. (We do have multiple copies of many of these items and will always select and send the best copy available). Not all of the books are technically magic books, but all have been acquired along with magic collections I’ve purchased—so there may or may not be a magic connection. All items on this list are priced at $6.00 each OR order four or more and they go for $5.00 each. (If you order four or more, you get the $5.00 price, regardless of how many we can supply.)

These are great to fill holes in your collection, or to pass along to newbies just trying to build their working collection.

As always, please email your wants to confirm availability and to receive shipping and payment options. Due to the volume of responses we usually receive after putting out a list like this, it sometimes takes us 24-48 hours to get back to you, but we do reply to all queries and reserve items in the order in which they are received. All items are listed as available subject to prior sale. Order information is at the end of the list.
