Also Scarne on Magic Tricks--great collection of easy magic with everyday objects--no cards!

I think the Semi-Automatic Card Tricks series by Steve Beam is under-rated--no one ever talks about those books here. There are some incredible gems "hidden" in those books, and the patter lines alone are worth their weight in gold.

Fetcher - The Magic of Eddie Fetcher

Secrets of an Escomotuer by Harry Riser(sp?)

Both are great books that people pass over and can be had at a very reasonable price. So, take advantage this fact and add 2 wonderful books to your collection.

All of the Rufus Steele books are overlooked and underrated, but "The Last Word on Cards" especially so.

The Card Magic of Nick Trost is my very favorite card book, however I do not think it is uderrated. Everything ever wrtten about that book is positive(as it should be). As I said "My Favorite Card Book"

When you think about the emphasis being place on DVDs these days, it seems pretty much like all books are being under rated.
