About this Item

Near fine book with darkening (but not brittle) paper in a vg- scarce dj with some dust soiling and some relatively mild staining here and there. Also with a 1" closed tear along top of front panel, 1/2" closed tear at top of rear panel, and two shallow chips on rear panel, one each at top and bottom edges, with perhaps both together equaling the area of a U.S. half dollar. Jackets on this oblong book are often missing or in heavily tattered condition. This one is a welcome exception. Striking cover illustration of an East Indian mystic with a cobra rising out of a bowl. The book has the look and feel of being a compilation of material originally published in pulp magazines, kind of like similar material Gibson compiled for Joseph Dunninger. Early sections cover a fair amount of historical material which merges into material on spiritualism exposes and exposes of stage magicians and finally settling into a section of simple tricks for amateur magicians. Nicely illustrated with many full page drawings. 159 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 005017

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
