I am selling a copy of my 2006 book, The Mechanics of Marvels.
Only 250 copies were printed (224 signed and numbered copies + 26 copies lettered A-Z). The edition sold out quickly and today the book is hard to find. This is the copy lettered "E". The book is in MINT condition, but the front end-paper is blank (a bindery mistake). Other than that, the book is pristine.
The book contains James C. Wobensmith's seminal work MAGIC PATENTS. In addition to Wobensmith's complete list of patents, I included 170 new patents-over 500 patents in all.
This 480 page, hardcover book (8-1/2" x 11") contains the complete drawings and text for 100 patents. A Foreword by Jim Steinmeyer is also included. Stage illusions, small apparatus and miscellaneous magic patents by some of magic's greatest thinkers are represented.
PRICE - $400 (includes priority postage in the US). Sorry, US shipping only. PAYMENT BY PAYPAL ONLY.
