Christopher, it might be of help in selling them if you told us if there are any indications on the back of the title page as to what printings these are. The later printings by D.Robbins have very muddy photos, while the earlier printings have clear photos.

Yes, thank you... They are both Published by Robbins. The photos look pretty clear to me, but I've never seen the other editions with which to compare...

I think the early Robbins editions are better than the later ones, but I'm not certain. I do know that there are definitely editions where the photos are all muddy and have a moire pattern on them because they weren't rescreened properly.

I believe the editions I have were published in 1976 and 1979. Are these the first edition reprints? The photos look quite clear to me. The books themselves are in excellent condition. I will offer them here for a reduced price of 45.00 for Magical World of Slydini and 35.00 for The Best of Slydini... and More. Free media mail shipping in the US, priority mail and international mail available at cost. Paypal only please.
Thank you,

The original editions of both sets of books were published by Tannen Magic. When D.Robbins reprinted them, often there was no information on the copyright page to indicate a reprint.

The prices you're offering them at are incredibly reasonable.
