Genial Improbabilities - Ken de Courcy

WAS £7.99 £7.95

Product description

An explanation of magic tricks by the magician Ken de Courcy. With several illustrations, the author thoroughly details a series of techniques, enabling the reader to replicate the magic within. Ken de Courcy toured internationally and wrote over sixty booklets about magic. Also, the use of Eastern cultural practices as a fetish of the magic industry is notable within the book.

This book is in good condition considering its age. The cover and spine are intact yet somewhat faded, although the colour remains bright. All the pages appear to be present and the illustrations are clear, yet several pages are stamped with ownership. The binding is loose, however the cover and pages remain aligned.
