This highly unusual magic book combines a fairy tale with a conjuring performance. The intention of Hoffmann was that the story would be told with the tricks accompanying it. The book was not reprinted and is now very hard to find. It has beautiful illustrations from H. L. Shindler.


Condition: Fair, bookcloth has wear and has partially split on the hinges, wear to top and bottom of spine, some warping to boards, some water damage visible on boards, endpapers  and first and last ten pages and all page edges (see photographs), some foxing and marking to pages. Overall a fair and well-bound copy.
