Large Format Sale Books/Booklets:

This is a list of either paper-bound, perfect bound, saddle stapled, or side or corner stapled softbound books, booklets, and manuscripts—plus a small sampling of instruction sheets (sometimes with the gimmicks, fekes, etc.), assorted ephemera, and an occasional magazine or clip with a relevant article related to magic.  This is also the “resting place” (until you buy them) of many complete or partial  volumes of popular magic magazines—GENII, NEW TOPS, MAGIC, MAGIGRAM, etc.—and all at the same bargain price.  All items are 4to (approximately 10-12” tall) and generally all are in “fairly good” to “as new” condition—a few “ex library” copies are mixed in and when that’s the case we’ll let you know and/or describe specific defects.  (We do have multiple copies of some of these titles and will always select and send the best copy available).  All items are priced at $6.00 each OR order four to nine and get them for $5.00 each OR, for the best deal, order 10 or more and get them at only $4.00 each.  (You get the price for however many you order–even if we can’t fill your entire order.) All items listed are offered subject to prior sale.
