Yes, Lifesavers is out of print. As for other books, I'm not aware of any lists of out of print or to be reprinted books.

I believe I recently spotted this up for sale at dananddave.com along with a few other classics. They seem to be offering more nowadays.

With the reprint does this mean the Lifesavers first edition is worth the same amount as the reprint?

Depends on whether you're just after the information or want to own a first edition.

Curt,

I have the first edition, just wanted to know if the first edition increased in price? don't know why but it always makes me feel better when I can pick up a trick or two from a book and use it and have the book increase in price...am I the only one that feels this way? maybe. but it makes me feel good.

My guess is that the first edition decreased slightly in price. Some copies were selling for as much as $100 before the reprint, but I'd imagine there's not as much demand now that another 500 units became available.

If second hand copies were selling for $100 - my guess would be that the first edition has decreased significantly in value. In magic, the main influence on the price of a book is simply - are there copies available? If new copies of a book are availalable from dealers then a second hand copy is worth less than the price of a new copy - it doesn't tend to make any difference whether it's a first edition or not.

For modern day magic books, it's extremely rare for a "first edition" to be worth significantly more than any other edition of the same book. The only exceptions would be books like Pure Effect, where the first edition contained routines that were not in the later editions.

Conclusion : stop 'investing' in magic books if your intentions is to sell them later on when it's in demand / out of print...
The authors nowadays will just reprint it when they realise there is a demand, unlike the past where books have been out of print for years and years, and everyone is paying $100 for those books.

Thanks for the input guys. Kadz, I don't really invest money in magic books to sell later, I've never sold a magic book before, and probably won't unless I'm in a tight squeeze. Like I mentioned earlier, it just makes me feel good when I see something I bought for a few bucks has increased in price.
