About aims to provide a simple, honest book shop for people interested in conjuring and the history of magic. The selection varies from practical classic texts though to collectible antiquarian books. 

As a collector and magic history writer myself I'm aware of the shortcomings of buying magic books online. As a result, this shop runs with the customer at its core. Photographs and descriptions are accurate and clear. Every order, regardless of value, is packaged to ensure safe transit. All books listed in stock are physically in stock with us, we don't sell stock we don't have. is operated by me, Philip David Treece. I'm a conservator by trade and interested in the social history of performance magic. I run the magic history blog which carries articles related to magicians, props, jokes and novelties. 


I hope you find something of interest here. If you'd like to be updated on new releases please sign up to the newsletter using the bar at the bottom of the page. If you have any questions you can contact me directly via the contact page.

All the best,
