This is a true first edition of one of the best references for mental magic ever written. Compiled by John J. Crimmins Jnr. shortly after Annemann's death, it consists of 193 effects, mostly taken from Annemann's magazine The Jinx. Alongside effects by Annemann, there are contributions from Dai Vernon, Paul Curry, Peter Warlock and others. This is a true first edition which was not issued with a dust jacket.
Condition: Good, some marks to covers and spine, slight fading and wear to spine, some yellowing to endpapers and page edges. A very nice copy of an important book.
