Topic: Would you vote for an Essential Dai Vernon reprint?

For all the money it would cost you to buy all of the books separately, I think it is time for another reprint of this tome. The after-market prices of individual books are absolutely ridiculous. On Amazon, I could buy the Inner Secrets Trilogy for the small amount (not really!) of $199. Isn't that a great deal? Plus, auctions on eBay also end up well over $100 dollars just for the trilogy. So obviously, there is still a HUGE demand for Vernon material. This, I would think, makes it worth reprinting from a publisher's viewpoint. Comment below what you think. Maybe we could get enough momentum going to get L&L's attention. I vote yes for the Essential Dai Vernon by Lewis Ganson reprint.

Yes absolutely. I sent an email to L&L about this topic a while ago but never got a response. I wish they would sell the rights to another publisher who would reprint it if they donít want to.

I would not hold my breath. L&L is not likely to do it and the book is unwieldy to deal with because it is so huge. It actually does not do that well in the resale market.

I was just looking for a copy of this book online and there are literally no options within a reasonable price range. I wonder with everything that's happened with L&L this year if it makes a reprint of these books more/less likely?

It may be worth contacting Murphy's, who now own L&L.

I suspect less likely, as far as I'm aware Murphy's don't do a lot of book publishing? But, it would be irresponsible of them to let such works become unavailable.

One other thought. A lot of the L&L books were also available as .pdfs. This book, or its constituent titles, may be as well. Murphy's certainly does support downloads.
