One last try... $42 shipped.

The book normally sells for $60 plus shipping. With paypal and shipping costs this is as low as I can go.

...to sweeten the deal...


No more price drops, but if you purchase TODAY I will throw in your choice of one of the following DVDs:

1. Jim Steinmeyer's "Palingenesia" (brilliantly performed by Neil Patrick Harris)
- OR -
2. L&L Publishing Presents The Greatest Collection of Magic Performances Ever Assembled on DVD - Volume 2


*** I am making the same offer in another post, so it is "first come, first served" on the availability of the bonus DVDs.

Evan, for approximately $10 more (to cover postage in the US), we'll send the purchaser of Volume 1, Volumes 2 and 3 for a complete set. So, whoever buys Volume 1 from you can get 2 and 3 for the cost of postage. You, of course, will have to let me know who the purchaser is, and then they can contact us if they want to complete the set for the cost of postage.
