Publication Dates

Discuss the historical aspects of magic, including memories, or favorite stories.

Is there a resource on the web that might provide publication dates for those older magic books that do not carry a copyright notice or date of publication within their pages?

I am trying to complete some info in my library's database and this came up again when I acquired another of Harry Stanley's volumes (this one is Baker's Bonanza by Hugh Miller) that lists no publication date.

Jacky, yes I am a regular visitor to your site, it is a wonderful resource.

Philippe, many thanks for the information. I regret that I do not own a copy of A Baker's Dozen. Yet.

Thank you gentlemen for the help.

Jerry:

If you are interested in publication dates for the older historical books on magic, you might want to keep an eye on my series of books, The Historians' Guide to Conjuring (Redux).

You can go to the following GF link to get more information: http://geniimagazine.com/forum/cgi-bin/ ... 4;t=002679

Good luck with dating those books!
