BRADBURY BOOKS – ABOUT US

Bradbury Books has been in operation since 1993. 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 website, we issue  a weekly "reverse auction" containing new and used books, DVDs, tricks, ephemera, etc. We call it a reverse auction because the prices go down by approximately 10% each week an item remains on the list. While there are occasional rare, seldom seen or even highly collectible books that show up on our weekly list, it is primarily a good source for those new to magic and/or working professionals or hobbyists still actively building their collections to fill holes and further develop their collections. The source for nearly all of our books and materials are from retiring magicians or those wanting to scale back on their collections, but keep the materials within the magic community--thus the reasonable pricing. By the way, 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 and/or ordering from one of our emailed lists.

We also send out periodic sale lists featuring books priced as low as $4.00 or $5.00 based on the number purchased. These lists cover all sorts of topics related to magic and allied arts--including books, magazines, advertising ephemera, instructon sheets, etc. To be added to our weekly Reverse Auction or less frequent Sale lists just e-mail us and we will be happy to add your name. We generally quote and ship via U.S.P.S. media mail (although we are also happy to quote and provide priority mail shiping if you prefer). We accept personal checks or PayPal as forms of payment.  Complete details on ordering and payment information is available at the end of the list. We look forward to hearing from you.

A word about shipping: We typically ship smaller packages (under a couple of inches thick) in bubble padded envelopes and use double-bubble on the ends and edges and/or often use cardboard reinforcement on ends and edges inside a padded envelope—although we have seldom had problems, it seems that more issues are being reported. So, we will start using boxes for individual books or packets of materials that are more than 2.5 – 3 inches thick depending on weight. This is a little more expensive, but we value your business and want to try to ensure that your materials are received in the same shape they were in when left our store. If you have consistent problems with rough treatment by your local sorting center or carrier, let us know and we will make special efforts to give you secure packaging. If the delivery time is an issue of concern for you, we are always happy to quote and send via “Priority Mail” at the going rate for that service.

 

If you are not receiving this weekly "reverse auction" directly, but would like to do so, just drop us a note in that regard and we will take care of it.  Likewise, should you like to stop receiving it, again just drop us a note,

 

Thanks for your interest!

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 four or 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.

[Houdini, Harry] “MAGIC edited by Houdini” (Newspaper Clipping Photocopies) Here is a set of photocopies of 24 clippings from The Daily Times-Star clipped and collected between November 1924 and February 1925. The “magic” consists of essentially puzzles, optical illusions, and simple tricks—and whether or not Houdini really had any editorial responsibility for what was selected, or just allowed his name to be used for the enterprise, is an open question. These are photocopies but may be of some interest to the complete Houdini collector. All are in a plastic report folder; darkened along one edge.

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.

Please query first to confirm availability and reserve one or more items. Due to the volume of responses we usually receive (and because our site is maintained manually), it is sometimes outdated and it takes us as long as 12-48 hours (depending on our travel schedule) to get back to you, but we do reply to all queries and reserve items in the order in which they are received. We will reply by email and confirm availability, the total cost with shipping (please let us know the zip code or country code where you are located), and your payment options. All items are listed as available subject to prior sale.

Ordering: Payment including shipping and handling can be made with personal check or you can pay via PayPal if you prefer. You can use most credit cards from the PayPal site. Missouri customers must add 8.35% sales tax.

Order by list number, item number, author and short title to avoid confusion. We do accept telephone/email "reserves" on items. Purchase price must arrive within 7 days or we will release the item to the next buyer. When calling/faxing your reserves, just leave it on our machine if we are unavailable. If you are checking on availability of an item or have other questions, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Shipping: The minimum shipping charge is $4.00 on any U.S. order. Add $1.00 extra for each additional book up to a maximum of $15.00. For unusually large orders, overseas shipping, or large magazine orders, we will advise of rate. All items are shipped via U.S. mail or U.P.S. as most practical. Allow 3-4 weeks for receipt.

Return privileges: Any item which does not match our description of condition may be returned within 14 days and we will refund full purchase price (less shipping charges). We want you to be pleased with our service and we value your future business.
