About this Item

Three clothbound volumes in original dust jackets. Published in book form in 1944, 1946 and 1979, respectively. All three volumes are fine in vg+ to near fine dust jackets. The two older volumes have typical paper aging. The jacket on volume one is fine with no chips or tears but there is a slight fade along spine. The jacket on the second volume is fine except for a 1/4" x 1/8" tiny chip at top of spine. and the jacket on volume three is fine except for what appears to be some natural age-discoloration/fading. All three books are tight and clean with no markings or bookplates. All in all a splendid set. These reviews of conjuring books were originally published serially in newsletter form in the 1940s by the Fleming Book Company, a distributor of magic publications from the 1940s to the 1960s. Fleming reprinted the reviews in two volumes issuing them both in cloth and paper--these are the more desireable clothbound copies. A third compilation of reviews, not previously issued in book form was issued by the purchaser of the Fleming Book publishing business, the late Lloyd E. Jones, aka Magic Limited, in 1979. Collectively, these reviews are among the most scholarly of all reviews in the stage and recreational magic field, the reviewer having been both a professional conjurer and a University economics professor. The three volumes cover reviews of magic publications from 1942 through approximately 1954. Of the three volumes, the most difficult to obtain today is, oddly enough, the third volume, which apparently had a lower print run than the first two volumes. Sold as a set only.

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.
