Lot of Seven Books by Various Dudes of Prestidigitorial Bent

Postby JHostler » November 23rd, 2019, 9:03 pm

OK… one man’s trash yadayadayada. But I’m far too lazy to sell this stuff piece-by-piece. So here’s the deal: consider all of these books “used.” They’ve been read. That said, they’re in more-than-respectable shape and would sit well in an equally respectable (or even disreputable) magician’s library. The first $79 gets them all, POSTAGE PAID anywhere in the continental US. Of course, that means “media mail” – but you get what you pay for:

New Modern Coin Magic by J.B. Bobo
Magic Inc. Revised Edition, 1976 printing
520-page hardcover with dust jacket
Very good condition with a ¾” tear in dust jacket

Another Book by Karrell Fox
Looks like a first edition (Supreme Magic), 1979
320-page hardcover with ust jacket
Very good condition

All of Leech by Al Leech
Magic Inc. hardcover with spiral binding (!); basically a bunch of Leech’s books punched and bound
One tine missing from spine, otherwise pretty good condition.

Duffie’s Card Compulsions by Peter Duffie
First edition (1995)
269-page hardcover with dust jacket
Pretty much “like new”

Ascanio’s World of Knives by Jose de la Torre
Second edition (1975)
95-page spiral-bound softcover
Very good condition

The Expert at the Card Table by Maurice Ravel(?)
Charles T. Powner 1975 edition
Softcover, 205 pages
Very good condition

Bands of Gold by Ben Harris
Probably first and only edition (1987)
24-page softcover
Very good condition
