For a few dollars you now have access to the magic secrets hidden in their pages. Actually, the real cost is half the paid price since most books, when you decide to part of them, can be sold at half the price you paid for them. And sometimes, when a book becomes out-of-print, it can be sold at a higher price.
Used magic books travel from magician to magician and give access to information at a lower cost. As an example, two-third of my libray are used books and their values represent only the third of all the money spent.
Out-of-print books are sometimes too expensive to be printed again. This is mostly true for old books, such as the ones produced fifty years ago or more. This is where the e-book becomes handy. It allows the reader to access information that otherwise would be too expensive to acquire, or even impossible to get.
A book also ages easily. Books written 400 years ago are still readable. And the ones produced today will still be readable 400 years from now!
I have been selling used magic books since 1994. During these 28 years, I was in contact with great customers, some of which with whom I had warm communications. It has always been a pleasure to supply books to those looking for them.
Itâ€™s now time for me to turn the page.
Our book inventory was moved to Bradbury Books, Kansas City, Missouri. The owner, Dan, has been selling new and used magic books since 1993, and offers a tremendous service to magicians.
Each week or so, his popular reverse auction goes on. New titles are added on a regular basis.
I thank you all for your patronage and I wish you the best.Martin
