Hot on the heals of Hoffmann's Modern Magic this book was published in 1888 by L. Upcott Gill of London. Illustrated throughout, it is an interesting example of a Hoffmann imitation. This includes a pasted catalogue of other books from the firm. Very scarce first edition.


Condition: Fair for age, wear and creasing throughout, some foxing, book catalogue to rear has rusted staples which have left pages loose, paper pasted on spine. Overall a fair copy given its age.
