CONJURERS' MONTHLY SET - RARE VARIATION

Please do not confuse this set with the other set listed below. This set is a rare variation. The original run of this set, of which this is one, has the author’s name, volumes and publisher’s names printed in red. The one being offered here has those items printed in gold lettering. This variation lie undetected for almost 20 years, until I came across it. I even talked to the publisher and he never heard about the variation and he knows his magic books. Please take a look at the regular set  below to get a better idea of the set. You can really see the difference by looking at the red foil cover and compare it to the foil on the spine.

The set was a limited edition of just 500 sets. I would surmise that there are probably only 5 of these variant sets extant. What most likely happened is that the printer ran-out of red foil and substituted the gold foil for a few sets to finish the job. That’s just my theory.

If you have an advanced Houdini or magic library, this set might be for you. If you like to own the different variations of Houdini or magic books, this is it.

Conjurers’ Monthly Magazine by Harry Houdini. This is a limited edition with two  volume boxed set . Volume One contains issues September 1906 to August 1907. Volume Two contains issues September 1907 to August 1908. This First Edition printing was limited to just 500 copies. The condition is like-new, it is still shrink-wrapped since 1991. Please click on the book for more images. Of interest to any magic historian or Houdini collector. This set should be in all advanced magic collections.
