They were the work of passion, these three volumes, and they were beautiful. They revealed the finest of magic sifted from a lifetime of experience. They were unique. Typewritten by the recipient of the A.M.A. Literary Fellowship and author of over 26 books of magic. Filled with hand drawn watercolor artwork and illustrations, and bound in library covers. Seen by only a select few and destined to stay that way. There was only one copy of each.
