Encylopedia of Card Magic? Book

Talk about what is being written in other magic publications.

Back in the '70s I remember taking a book from the library (I don't remember if I returned it or not) that I remember being called THE ENCYLOPEDIA OF CARD MAGIC, but I've never been able to track down a copy since.

The book was white and quite thick, as I remember, and each effect was accompanied by black and white photographs, not drawings. I had a description for Cards Thru Newspaper, but I don't remember much more of the content.

Does anyone know the book I'm referring to? is it still available?

Are you sure you are not thinking of The Complete Illustrated Book of Card Magic (1969) by Walter Gibson? It's a big book with photos.

Thanks Bill! I'm pretty sure that the one I mean. It's been a long time ago and the memory fails. I found a picture of it on Amazon, and it seems to be the one I remember; big and white. Going to have to try to track down a copy for old time sake.
