Published by William Goldston Ltd, London. 1921, although no date shown on book. First and only edition of this book by Harry Houdini, with the mounted dedication to Harry Kellar on the verso of frontis.
This is a smart example of a fairly rare book. There is some general rubbing and soiling to the boards, edges and spine, as is common with this book. There is also some wear to the spine ends. There are a few marks to the front and rear boards, but overall it is in Good condition. Inside, there is the occasional mark or age spot to a few pages, but generally they are clean and smart.
In all, this is a nice first edition of a rare book by Houdini, written to all budding magicians and it would be a lovely book to give to any magic lover or a nice addition to a rare books collection.
