Maskelyne, Nevil [with] Devant, David. Our Magic.
London: Routledge, .
First edition. Large 8vo. 487pp. Publisher’s lavishly decorated terra cotta cloth titled in gilt and embellished in black, white, blue and red (with some polychromatic elements which I had oddly never noticed before). Minor edgewear and scuffing, but a very good, clean, copy indeed. Internally clean and fresh. Packed to the brim with illustrations and photographs of all forms of stagecraft, trickery, legerdemain and conjuring, plus some excellent facial hair. An in depth examination of the art from two men who, at the time, were undoubtedly the most famous magicians in the country.
