A Note Regarding the Upcoming Copperfield Museum Book

Postby Richard Kaufman » September 8th, 2021, 8:54 pm

Re "David Copperfield's History of Magic": Even though it's cheaper at amazon, the Barnes & Noble "Excluse B&N Edition" will have an additional chapter not available elsewhere:

Already ordered.

What’s a wee bit confusing is they are both advertised with the same page count.
I’m sure it’s just an oversight.

Will the hardcover through Barnes & Noble be considered the "Exclusive B&N Edition" with the additional chapter?

You can order either edition on the Barnes & Noble website. Make sure to pick the one that is listed as "Exclusive B&N Edition."

Unfortunately, B&N doesn't ship to the UK at the moment (for "Covid reasons"). Not only that, but I've also just received an email from Amazon saying that my pre-ordered copy will not be available until November 30... :(

So, different options for ordering the book include:

Expanded edition - only available in the US.

Signed edition - only available in the US.

Great strategy.

I thought the conversation was very enjoyable and fun.
I don't have David's autograph, so I went for the signed (bookplate) edition. (Ships Oct 27) Thanks for posting this!

A book is nice, but it's no substitute for seeing the objects in person. Here's hoping that Copperfield opens up his Museum in the not-too-distant future to more than the few "lucky visitors" he now selects. How about following the Magic Castle model and allowing Genii subscribers to visit the Museum once a year?

There is currently no framework for organizing tours. They just come together. And the groups are extremely small. No way to do it for Genii subscribers.

As stated, I'm aware of the current situation where there are only non-formal tours for a small number of lucky visitors. My point is that I hope Copperfield prioritizes turning what is now the largest and most important private collection of magic history into the International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts, truly living up to the name he gave it.

I would hope the proceeds of this book go entirely to realizing that goal.
