Abracadabra! This vintage kids' magic book will now appear in your mailbox --Poof!

Actually, there are few formalities...

This is a lovely hardback of The Great Merlini's (AKA Clayton Rawson) The Golden Book of Magic: Amazing Tricks for Young Magicians, illustrated by William Dugan.

From the back: "...crystal clear instructions are illustrated with many pictures in color and easy-to-follow diagrams. Included are feats of magic with ropes and knots, matches, strings, money, handkerchiefs, and cards." Even includes mindreading tricks!

Book is in good+ condition with mildly bumped corners. No markings of signatures. Only flaw: bits of the cover's clear laminate is peeling. Brilliant color pages and great period art.
