In connection with my bibliographical work on Robert Albos publications, Id be oh so grateful if any of you who purchased Bobs reprint (yes, reprint) of Volume V (aka Still Further Classic Magic with Apparatus) would contact me. Or maybe you know somebody with a copy of the reprint who wouldnt mind helping me with some book details. Bob reprinted Volume V shortly after the first printing sold out in 1984/1985.
Why am I asking? Because Im in the midst of concluding the bibliographical documentation of Bobs works and now need to spread my queries beyond local fellow collectors, all of whom have copies of the first printing. I believe the first and second printings look nearly identical, but want to be sure by confirming that with second printing owners who have the paperwork proof that they bought a second printing. I know that Byron Walker sold a number of copies of the reprint, but it is likely that Albo sold the rest directly to the purchasers. He probably contacted these second printing owners by letter.
Many thanks in advance,
