Nice. I have a hardcopy of Erdnase, but it's nice to have a copy on my computer.

Thank you. I have and read the hard copy over 40 years ago but this makes it very convenient to read it over and over again.

Pretty sure it's going to be The Modern Conjurer by C. Lang Neil. A British First Edition (identifiable by the misspelling of Neil as Niel on the spine) can be seen at the bottom of the stack of books for their summer line-up on their site, and I've also heard that this was Miller's favourite book. It's also been heralded as containing one of the two best descriptions of the pass, the other of course being Erdnase. Also, it's one of the earliest texts to use photographs instead of illustrations.

Looking forward to it.

Hi Jeff,
That's a pretty good guess and you will definitely be able to download that book one week this summer but not next week!
Here's another, but more arcane, clue.

25 years ago Karl Fulves said this about next week's free book.

"The [next week's book] classic, combined with the Charles Jordan output, could
well be acknowledged as the key early 20th Century texts foreshadowing
the shape of things to come."

Now what do you think?

I'll a wild stab at it: Either Hoffman or one of Edward Victor's books.

Dear Civins,
Please let us know what the error is so we can fix it.
So far over 600 have downloaded this week's book this afternoon so we know it's working for some but we definitely want to make sure everybody who wants it can get it.

I had no trouble with the download.

Thank you so much for these. I've got them on my tablet for handy reading on my train rides into London for meetings of The Magic Circle.

My hardback copy of Hatton & Plate cost me $40!

Superb all the way.

And I'll be looking over the list of other available e-books so I can spend some dough and support CARC.

The files we used to print the Erdnase bible were used to make the PDF for that book. Hatton and Plate was done using OCR of the printed book from 1910 and the output format is a text over image PDF which is a somewhat different format. This format allows us to keep the old book feel while making the text crisp and file size somewhat smaller than if we were using all images. What Kindle are you having trouble with? Does Kindle support text over image PDFs? Unfortunately we don't have any Kindles at CA to test on. We will try our very best to solve this for/with you.
