The Magic Story

£14.99

Product description

This edition of 'The Magic Story' is undated, but is a sixth, revised and illustrated early edition, printed at some time after 1914. It is a motivational book in two parts. The first part shows how the magic story was discovered by a luckless artist, named Sturtevant, who told it to others and they seemed to prosper from his storytelling. The second part is the actual story found by Sturtevant. It has become a classic tale of perseverance and prosperity for readers who can benefit from its timeless lessons. The book has maroon boards and leatherette spine binding. The cover has a few small marks, corners and spine ends have slight scuffing wear; the bottom of the text block is unevenly cut, with some rough edges. There are 9 yellow tinted illustrations, including the frontispiece, and each page of text has a golden yellow book and candle motif similar to the one shown on the book cover. The author believes that he has written a recipe for 'success', which, if followed, cannot fail, and readers can achieve greater personal fulfillment.
