Bargain Books/Media

Here are THREE SEPARATE LISTS of Bargain Books--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.  Generally all are in “Good” to “As New” condition--a few “ex library” copies are mixed in and when that’s the case we’ll let you know.  (We do have multiple copies of many of these titles and will always select and send the best copy available). Not all of these are 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 four or more, you get the $5.00 price, regardless of how many we can supply.)

 

The SECOND LIST is a list of VHS tapes, DVDs and a few Audiocassettes sprinkled in.  Again, all items are priced at $6.00 each OR order four or more and get them for $5.00 each.  (You get the price for however many you order--even if we can’t fill your entire order.)  All were previously owned—and thus assumed to be viewed, except where noted—i.e. “still sealed.” .

 

BONUS: You can mix titles from the paperback and VHS tape lists—order a total of four from either or both lists and get the $5.00 each price.

 

The THIRD LIST is general new and used books related to magic and allied arts--and all items are priced as individually marked.

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 us 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.

 

Feel free to forward this list to anyone else who may be interested.  Order information is at the end of the list.

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.

About

Bradbury Books & Beyond (an enterprise of Bradbury Associates,Dan and Jobeth Bradbury) has operated since 1993 as a Missouri sole proprietorship. We buy and sell new and used books and ephemera related to magic (conjuring) and its 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, CDs, tricks, props books, etc. Just e-mail us if you'd like to be added to either list.
