Our Magic

I located an old copy of this book--"Our Magic" by Maskelyne & Devant
Copyright 1911
Hard copy--dark blue with gold lettering for title, etc.
Rabbit in top hat on cover
Has some water damage but pages ok and binding all tight

Does anyone have any idea of current value?
Thanks,

Re: Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky J

There was an interesting moment where Dave claims he didn't want to stop on that card "Claims it was forced" Ricky went further and then immediately handed the cards for Dave to shuffle.

This was different from "Fousome" in that regard.
