This is a scarce first edition of one of the giants of Chicago's close-up scene. A pioneer of table magic, this was the only book published on his routines. This is a true first edition.
Condition: Good, spiral binding has small crack near the base of the spine, but still sound, clear plastic covers slightly yellowed with some wear, front clear cover has a small piece missing along the top edge, back clear cover has a 3cm split with a crease. These clear covers and spiral could be replaced by a book binder if desired, but I don't think it's necessary. Text block slightly yellowed on page edges with a few minor creases, otherwise very good.
Binding: Spiral-bound book.
