I've got a friend who has a large collection of magic books from her grandfather. I've got copies of Greater Magic and Modern Magic. Any other essential old magic books that I should look out for?

You might take a look at the lists in this Theory 11 discussion:

You might also take a look at the bibliographies in some of the better magic books in your own collection. Henry Hay's _The Amateur Magician's Handbook_ has an annotated bibliography. For example, he makes this comment about Edward Maurice's _Showmanship and Presentation_:

A pamphlet packed very tight with important information on stagecraft (not tricks). It would be easier to absorb if it were not quite so concentrated. Hardly a wasted line.
