ENCYCLOPEDIA OF IMPROMPTU MAGIC

MARTIN GARDNER

SECOND PRINTING 1985

RARE AND OUT OF PRINT

(NOTE: COVER OF BOOK SPELLS "IMPROMTU" AND THE SPINE SPELLS "IMPROMPTU". I'VE SEEN A COPY OF THIS BOOK FOR SALE WITH EXACTLY THE SAME ERROR ON THE FRONT SO POSSIBLY A FAULT WITH SECOND EDITION COPIES).

Hello and welcome to my page. I'm going to be listing a number of magic books over the coming weeks and months which belonged to my late father who passed 11 years ago this year, so now we feel is the right time to give them a new home to someone who will appreciate them as much as he did. Many are rare and highly collectable because not only was he a highly talented and admired close up Magician for over 50 years and well known in various circles, he also collected magic and various other books. Most are vintage and out of print. He also invented magic tricks one being the famous "Pivot Color Change" and had his work published in The Gen. Due to other commitments it may take time to list them as there are dozens in his collection, but if you have anything specific you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.


Postage


For UK purchases all books will be well packaged and shipped by Royal Mail 1st or 2nd Class Signed For depending on your preference so both options will require a signature (although during the current pandemic the postman/woman should ask you to identify your name and sign on your behalf to comply with social distancing rules). For some of the more valuable books I will send by Royal Mail Guaranteed Delivery which can be tracked online and will also require a signature. I will aim to dispatch your package as soon as possible but no later than 2 working days after receipt of payment.


For overseas purchases all books will be well packaged and shipped by Royal Mail International. (Please note items posted to countries outside the EU may be subject to customs charges for which the buyer is responsible - see postage section for delivery fees overseas - any request to devalue the book on the customs form will be declined and the sale cancelled).  I aim to dispatch your package as soon as possible but no later than 2 working days after receipt of payment.


Payment


Paypal accepted only and payment within 24 hours of auction end please or the sale will be cancelled and the book relisted.


The books are from a smoke free environment, well wrapped in water resistant packaging and even though they have been stored on shelves for over a decade and not touched (except to inspect for the sale) some may have some shelf wear but I will do my best to describe the condition of each one as best as I can so please read thoroughly before bidding or purchasing.


PLEASE NOTE DUE TO THE CONFIDENTIAL NATURE OF THE MAGIC BOOKS RETURNS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.


ALSO DUE TO THE LOCKDOWN SITUATION IN THE UK THERE MAY BE A DELAY IN DELIVERY TIMES OUT OF MY CONTROL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING DURING THIS DIFFICULT PERIOD.


(I will also be listing personal items not related to magic).


Thank you for your interest!
