About this Item

First Edition. Original cloth, near fine. Dust jacket has a chip from the spine (can be replaced). Large, folio sized picture book, illustrated with photographs from Citizen Kane. Though a common book, this copy is unique in that it has a typed letter, signed "Orson" from Orson Welles tipped onto the front-free endpaper. The letter is to a fellow magician and says, "Dear Stanley, Many thanks for the birthday wishes and the welcome present of your cigar wrapper trick. As I told you before, it's a delight. Looking forward to seeing you at the Castle. Orson." The Castle referred to is The Magic Castle in Los Angeles, a members only club for magicians. The letter is dated May 11, 1976. There is offsetting on the corners of the letters from glue. Also laid in are a few ephemeral pieces. The owner, a fellow magician, obviously treasured this item. Bookseller Inventory # 003316
