Shank Shuffle by Ed Marlo. Blue covers, spiral bound.
I don't own it but I'm curious. Any thoughts, Bill?

Any updates?

I apologize. I forgot all about these books.

The Shank Shuffle is still in print. You can get it from Magic, Inc. $24.95

Don't Bet on It is out of print, but Gambling, Inc. still has a few copies left at $15.00

Hi Bill,

Thank you.

I was told that the Gambling Inc. edition is the much shorter version of “Don’t Bet On It,” with lean information and sub-standard writing. It is, essentially, a rushed booklet version.

The one I referred to is over 120 pages.

That's interesting. I don't have either one of them. Still, it might be obtainable. I'll check with Andy Greget.

Which volume of the Ramsay Classics?

The Garcia book goes for about $250 - $450.

The Tom Palmer book goes for whatever the traffic will bear.

I recently received the complete set of Ed Marlo's Riffle Shuffle System. This is a 5 manuscript set that includes. "Riffle Shuffle System," "Patented Riffle Shuffle," and "Riffle Shuffle Finale."

They are 2nd edition and they are signed and numbered by Marlo himself. They are also in mint condition.

I was wondering how much they are worth as a complete set. I have search the net over and over again and I just can't find anything on this rare set.

Hoping you can help

That's a hard one to pin down. You might be able to find out something from Andy Greget.

His contact information is on Google. I know this is "Magicians Helping Magicians," but there is a point where help becomes spoon feeding. I checked with a google search before I posted that.

The first listing when you google Andy Greget is an article by Jamy Ian Swiss that has Andy's contact information.

The Indus Valley culture doesn't do computers either, but you can find a lot about them on google. Smile

I believe that information for Andy is not current, Bill.

Maybe so.

He always lists with information wherever he goes, though. His cell phone would be current.

Hello Bill,

I was wondering if you could tell me how much "Whaley's Encyclopedic Dictionary of Magic" would be worth.

It is the hard bound, green binder, one volume addition. First Edition, First Printing January 1989. There is no marks and all the pages are in crisp unbent condition. The binder has no marks or bends on the surface, corners or edges. The book has only been open about four or five times. I call this excellent condition but you be the judge.

As you probable already know, there were only 500 copies printed and only 50 of them were hard bound. But they were numbered in the order of reservation. Even though I have a hard bound addition my book is numbered #256.

Thanks in advance on any thing you can find out.

That's another tough one. Since there have been further editions, including one that is available as an e-book, and these have included some rather heavy error corrections, it would be very difficult to put a price on them.

I think that at one point, there was some talk of making these almost interactive, that is, if you found an error, you could e-mail it to Bart, and he would correct them on a periodic basis.

Things like this almost take on a life of their own. They require updating.

Maureen Christopher did this with the her late husband's Illustrated History of Magic, but she didn't correct any of the errors in the original book. She just added on some material to cover the magicians who had become famous since the original book was printed in 1973.

I'll be up East this weekend, and I'll check on it for you.

Well, I missed the boat on this one! Before the economic downturn these were bringing $800 - $1000 retail. Figure that the buying price would be about 1/3 to 1/2 that.

Nowadays, with the economy in the toilet, it's anybody's guess
