All volumes had Limited Edition status and depending on the volume, the number published varied with the greatest limitation being on Volume 5. Several of the volumes are signed by Dr. Albo. Not only does the series fully embrace conjuring apparatus but a host of other collectibles as well such as magic tokens, books, posters, magic sets and more. If you are new to collecting let this be a spring board for a pleasant journey as nowhere else will you find the vast amount of information contained within.

All volumes have clear acetate covers with exception of the first which is no great problem to replace. This also includes a box slip case which holds all volumes and has gilt stamping on front cover. When originally shipped many of these were split open at the back top and bottom edges and this one no exception but once on shelf of course is not seen. Front cloth inside tab to lift cover up to gain access to volumes has been reinforced with red cloth tape. All of the volumes 1 through 8 are cloth bound with gilt stamping and I can assure you that ownership of these books will have you looking them over time and time again as the amount of material contained within is voluminous.
