BRADBURY BOOKS – ABOUT US

Bradbury Books has operated since 1993 as a Missouri sole proprietorship. We buy and sell new and used books and ephemera related to magic (conjuring), circus, carnivals and the allied arts and entertainments. Among our specialties are books and ephemera related to magic history, biography and bibliography.

We are a home-based mail-order business in Kansas City, MO and do not operate a store front or show room. In addition to maintaining this site, we issue electronic update lists approximately once a month. We also distribute a weekly "reverse auction" (the prices go down each week) which contains new and used videos, DVDs, tricks, props books, etc. Just e-mail us if you'd like to be added to either list. The shop to the left isn't really ours, but all too often we feel like that's how much inventory we have, so do help us by taking a look below. We look forward to hearing from you.

Reverse Auction

Greetings! Here is the Reverse Auction coming to you Monday evening, June 29, 2020. We have some great books, a few collectible and some less often seen items—and of course lots of bargain buys on the lower part of the list where all prices have been reduced again—some to as low as $5.00 or even  less on “package” purchases. If you see something of interest, verify availability with an email query to us and we will respond with the total cost including shipping at standard rates (or priority, if requested). Zip codes are helpful and if outside the U.S., please include where you want it shipped. We always respond to all queries in the order in which they are received—even when it takes us a while to get back to you due to other work or family commitments.

As always, we "GUARANTEE YOUR PURCHASE”—if you want to return an item for any reason, we offer a full refund of the purchase price.  Payment options and other details are at the end of the listing. Here’s this week’s list:

Bargain Books/Media

What follows are THREE SEPARATE LISTS--the first one is a list of paperback book titles--both regular size (12mo & 8vo) and large size (4to) paperbacks and every now and then a hardbound book, DVD, audio, video cassette, or even a prop or trick in the mix.  Generally all are in “Good” to “As New” condition—a few of the books are “ex library” and when that’s the case we’ll let you know.  (We do have multiple copies of many of these items and will always select and send the best copy available). Not all of the books are technically magic books, but all have been acquired along with magic collections I’ve purchased—so there may or may not be a magic connection. All items on this list are priced at $6.00 each OR order four or more and they go for $5.00 each.  (If you order fouror more, you get the $5.00 price, regardless of how many we can supply.)

As always, please email your wants to confirm availability and to receive shipping and payment options.  Due to the volume of responses we usually receive after putting out a list like this, it sometimes takes 24-48 hours to get back to you, but we do reply to all queries and reserve items in the order in which they are received.  All items are listed as available subject to prior sale.

***************START OF LIST NO. 3 - MAINLY SMALL FORMAT BOOKS OR BOOKLETS*********************

This is a list of small format softbound books–these are smaller sized (8vo–i.e. less than 10” tall–or smaller) perfect bound, saddle stapled or side stapled booklets in wraps.  Also included are catalogssome,  ephemera and occasional small packet or other tricks. All are generally in “good” (which means average used book condition) to “as new” condition—some may have former owners names, stickers, small markings, etc., but condition is otherwise typically good and we have multiple copies of many, so we will always send the best copy available. (If there are major defects, we will let you know.)  This list is priced at $6.00 each–OR order four to nine titles and you get them for $5.00 each–OR FOR THE BEST BARGAIN, order 10 or more (regardless of how many we can provide) and pay only $4.00 each. FYI, items that appear in BOLD are among some of the newest items added to the list.

Here’s what we have available now—more will be coming soon.

Magic Magazines

This section contains magazines and periodicals related to magic (conjuring)--plus allied arts and a few strays. The numbers (Mxxxx or Mxxxxx) and the descriptions are from the two landmark bibliographies of conjuring periodicals published in the twentieth century: James B. Alfredson and George L. Daily's A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF CONJURING PERIODICALS IN ENGLISH: 1791 - 1983. (York, PA, Magicana for Collectors, 1986); and a companion and continuation of that work, Father Stephen A. Fernandes' MAGIC MAGAZINES OF THE SECOND MILLENNIUM: A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF ENGLISH-LANGUAGE CONJURING PERIODICALS, AUGUST 1791 - 1 JANUARY 2000. (Hyannis, MA, Fr. Stephen A. Fernandes, 2000). On the infrequent occasions when a new conjuring periodical is found and listed, whether it is within the scope of these two publications or it commenced publication after 01/01/00, it will be be preceded by an "N" and follow the five-digit numbering system used by Fernandes. Any periodical titles which fall outside the scope of these two bibliographies, but which are included in this list as a matter of convenience (and because I have issues for sale) will be be preceeded by an "O" and likewise parrot the five-digit numbering system used by Fernandes. The "Nxxxx", "Nxxxxx" and "Oxxxxx" entries are merely included as a matter of convenience for alphabetizing within this listing and are not intended to approach the scholarship of mssrs. Alfredson, Daily and Fernandes.
