Great deal on these books Spydur. But CLOSE-UP CARD MAGIC? Spydur m'man, I LOVE getting rid of books. But this one? Never. Hang onto it. And as far as a PA system goes, my advice would be to call places who sell them and tell them exactly what your working conditions and needs are. I would NOT recommend anything from Radio Shack, and I certainly wouldn't recommend anything from a magic supplier. Do the right thing.
P.S. I'd hang onto that APOCALYPSE books as well. But if you have PERSONAL COLLECTION...Sell!

Is there anyway to buy items individually?

If I were you, I would hold on to Close Up Card Magic and Encyclopedia of Card Tricks.

You are getting rid of alot of decent books but you should seriously consider keepng the 2 mentioned. There is a life time full of card magic in both of them.

Good luck with the sale !!

Thanks for the advice, but I have the books that I am holding on to: Erdnase, Hoffzinser, Carney, Hollingworth,Williamson. Those are the books that I like the most.

Again if anyone is interested in purchasing them as a LOT please let me know before tonight.

Thank you.

I'd happily pay twice the $10.00 (each) for DesTROYers and Impossibilia but I can't justify paying the extra $130.00 for a bunch of books I already have.

YOu might contact the folks at H & R Books:

about selling them a group.

A friend of mine sells Anchor sound systems. These are professional grade and built for heavy duty travel and use. Let me know if you want to contact him about buying one.
