A few words from Martin Joyal

I have been selling used magic books since 1994. During these 27 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.

It’s now time for me to move to something else.

Not long ago, I started working on a new project which requires time and space. I am gradually making this transition by going through my inventory and making huge sales from time to time. Who knows, you might find hidden gems!

I thank you all for your patronage and I wish you the best.


If you previously bought from us for more than $100, then you deserve a special treatment. From now on you are considered a V.I.P. and you can buy selected books at the VIP Price (with savings up to 30%). When ordering, you wil be charged the regular price and we will send you an instant refund (equal to Regular price minus VIP price).

To keep charges as low as possible, orders are shipped via the surface postal service (small orders in bubble envelopes, large orders in carton boxes).

New rates of the postal service forced us to modify our shipping charges. Low and heavy weight parcels now cost less to ship. Unfortunately, medium weight parcels took the hit. To better serve our customers, we took half the augmentation on our shoulders.
