Hey Gang,

It looks like Amazon is selling "MAGIC: 1400s-1950s- by Mike Caveney, Ricky Jay, and Jim Steinmeyer" for only $48 with free shipping. If I remember correctly, I think I paid $200 for mine- and love it.


Your pal,

TRICK OF THE YEAR: Industrial Revelation, BOOK OF THE YEAR: The Approach, The AIP Bottle, and my new book Scenic 52, can all be found over here:

Jamie, I believe this is the smaller version that came out after the larger version went oop. You probably bought the original, larger version. Actually, they were available on Amazon for $125 back when. So glad I got mine then. Beautiful book. I understand this version is very nice, too.

Thanks for the heads up Jamie. Just ordered a copy with two day free shipping with Amazon Prime. Don't feel too bad about the price drop. This edition is some what smaller in size and page count than the one you paid $200 for. They trimmed the page count from 650 to 544 and eliminated some photos. Interestingly, the book is printed in English, German, and French like those old Marconick books. It weighs 14 pounds and has 750 photos instead of 900!!

I received this book for Christmas last year, and it is fantastic. Highly recommended to any student of magic. Thanks for sharing, Jamie!

This has to be one of the best bargains in Magic. Get one for yourself and one to stash. AND free Prime shipping on this 14 pounder!
