Back in the early 1990s I signed a contract with Harvey Rosenthal to do a book on his coin magic, paid him a $3000 advance against royalties, and videotaped over 100 items on just under 10 hours of tape.
Without the time to complete this project, I will now sell it. You will receive 5 DVDs containing all the material (over 100 items of coin magic), plus a list of the contents of each DVD.
You will receive the original contract, which you will have to agree to honor in a new contract (details on the royalty will be discussed in private with someone who makes a serious offer).
The book is neither written nor illustrated/photographed. You are receiving the raw material from which to write it. You will have to contact Mr. Rosenthal regarding posing for photographs.
Mr. Rosenthal has additional coin material that we did not get to film, and he may make that available to you. He has also varied a few of the items in the intervening years, and may make this new material available as well (all of this would be between whomever purchases the rights to the book and him).
My asking price is a mere $3000--this is exactly what I paid Harvey as an advance against royalties (in other words, he doesn't receive any further royalties until he has received over $3000 worth). I will charge nothing for the many hours of work I did in making the videotapes.
NOTE: The videotapes are strictly of the homemade variety and are not suitable for any use other than to be watched in order to write the material. The videos may not be sold or released in any form and this will be part of the contract.
