Natural Magic: the Family Library, no. XXXIII

£24.99

Product description

John Murray, 1832
Brewster, Sir David
Letters addressed to Sir Walter Scott
The subjects covered by these 13 letters range from the scientific to the supernatural, from the motion of the eyes in portraits to Eskimaux ventriloquists! Many conjuring tricks are described. The variety of subjects in these letters makes for fascinating reading, and the book has been highly regarded (and priced) in both India and the States.
Hardback
352 pages
Condition: the linen covering over the hard covers has split along the spine, front and back; the spine is loose; and there is general soiling of the covers. However, the text is clear and unmarked. Possibly some restitching of the binding has taken place.
