This is a book the rarely, if ever, comes up for sale. The title of the book is “For Your Eyes Only” by The Mighty Quinn Magician, aka, Steve Quinn. The book is semi-autobiographical and covers the business and experience side of performing escapes and magic. The book has a lock and chain to keep it from being read by prying eyes. It is spiral bound and had a very limited print run. From what I have learned about the book, there are only about 25 or so made. It has about 75 unnumbered pages with many photos and illustrations. The condition is fine. This hard to find book is of interest to the performing escape artist or magician. It is also of interest to the advanced magic bibliophile. It would make a very nice addition to your magic
