JoyalStack Price Guide
to used magic books

Putting a price on a magic book is far from being an exact science. Apart from the the book's content and its author, many factors must be considered: the edition, the condition of the book, the publication date, how many copies were printed, if it's still available or out of print, if an upcoming reprint was recently announced, the presence or lack of a dust jacket, if it's a signed copy, etc. You might also have some subjective criteria: perhaps you received the book as a gift, it was your first magic book, it reminds of a favorite lecture you attended, etc.

It goes without saying that evaluating a magic library is a time consuming process. Although we are dealing with magic books, there is no magic way to arrive easily at an exact value.

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).

Shipping charges are calculated according to the parcel's weight.

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.
