Bargain Books/Media

Here 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.  All items are listed as available subject to prior sale.
