Description

"The Great Houdini", 1971 Scholastic book, by Beryl Williams and Samuel Epstein

Check out this wonderful old book on the Great Houdini! It's a biography of one of the best escape artists of our time. The authors interviewed magicians who met Houdini to get the information for the book, and is the true story of his life. Book is in good condition with no writing or torn pages. The covers are good with just slight age discoloring and scuffing. There is a small piece of the corner of the back cover that is torn. The front cover is torn from the spine about an inch at the top, but the spine is intact and the pages are tight in book. It has 275 pages and several illustrations throughout.

•••••
Shipped USPS First-Class Parcel in padded envelope - includes tracking. See our Policies for more.

• In an effort to keep shipping costs low for our buyers, Item shipping cost does NOT include insurance.

• If you wish to INCLUDE insurance on an item, please contact us prior to sale and we'll include at additional USPS cost. This will add approx. $2.00 per book. We encourage buyers to add Insurance to help protect against the rare USPS damage and give some loss protection.
