1969 1st edition, Dover paperback. Very Good condition, crisp, tight, unmarked, untorn. Some minor wear on edges,a nd minor discoloration.
One of the greatest books ever written to help magicians make their magic memorable, entertaining and meaningful. The book was never published in hardback, only paperback from the beginning. I bought my copy of Magic and Showmanship in 1973, and already the cover had been changed, with a brighter purplish cover. Same photos of hands doing sleights, but a different cover from this aqua toned look of the First Edition.
Finding a first edition of this book is extremely difficult, and finding one in decent condition like this one is even harder. If you want your library to contain VERY important books, then the first edition of Magic and Showmanship by Henning Nelms. Here's your chance to get it.
