SELLING THE TOUGH STUFF 48 pages STAPLE BOUND book 2003 1st edition, Magical Tools publ.
You may not know about Wesley James, though Vernon, Jennings, Cervon, Minch, Garcia and many other close-up magic luminaries know his work and revere it. I discovered Wesley James through his coin items in Kaufman's CoinMagic book, and later found out just how prolific and smart a creator James was when I read Enchantments, his 500 page book published by Hermetic Press.
This 48 page book is actually a set of "Lecture notes", though is is much more detailed than most lecture notes. It reads like a book, not like a list of reminders of things you should remember from a lecture. (James is also revered for the high quality and thoughtfulness of his lectures)
Mostly advanced card stuff but also a couple of coin and close-up (non-card) items. His Yantra card suspension is my favorite item from the book, but also he has a great needle on and off thread, which is super clever.
Look at the photos of table of contents and/or page shots to get an idea of style and format. Important study for any serious close-up and card workers.
Book was $25-$30 when issued 17 years ago. Now almost impossible to find. This one is like new, not previously owned, from new-old dealer inventory.
