Does anyone know why Bruce Elliott's book "Classic Secrets of Magic" has never been reprinted?

It's been reprinted any number of times! It is easy to find from any dealer of used magic books and it won't cost you much at all.

This is an excellent book. Along with THE AMATEUR MAGICIAN'S HANDBOOK, I consider this to be one of the better neopyhte's books. It is filled with some great routines.

You cannot go wrong having it in you library.

Perhaps you have been thrown off by the fact that it was reprinted under a new title: "Great Secrets of the Master Magicians."

My Collier Books version was reprinted in 1975 and has a list price of $1.50, which I personally consider the greatest bargain in the history of magic. I bought mine used for, I think, $6 from H&R Magic Books, and it's still just about the best bargain in magic even at that lofty price.

Just wanted to chime in here to say that I, too, LOVE my four Bruce Elliot books!
