High Bidder McPHEE

Trost Collection. 1976, hard bound, 207 pages, full with illustrations and photos. Contents are divided into four categories and states:

*Memorabilia-The writings of the great magicians of the past, telling in their own words their feelings, their opinions, the “news behind the news”, of the time. Here are the posters and the playbills, the programmes, and lots of the hoopla and ballyhoo that made magic what it is.

*Tricks-Here you will find tricks that were performed some thirty years ago and more and you may be surprised to learn that many are being performed still! They're all here: Card Tricks, Coin Tricks, Silk Effects...

*Stage Illusions-Not just the “effect” but a complete revelation of how the illusions were worked, how they were prepared and even some of the “patter” that was used as misdirection.

*Posters Plus-Rare shots of the early magicians as far back as the 1880's, authentic pictures of Indian fakirs charming the deadly cobra and the beautiful. Previously unpublished stone lithograph posters.

Light foxing to endpapers and page edges. Condition very good.
