The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy. ONLY $20.00!
ONLY 250 NUMBERED COPIES AVAILABLE.
Now, for the first time in almost a century, one of magic’s most controversial books is available again. The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy by David P. Abbott has been reissued in a new, handsome and affordable edition.
Joseffy (Joseph P. Freud, 1873-1946) was one of most eccentric, clever and colorful characters in the history of modern magic. His original inventions and methods confounded his contemporaries and his performances mystified everyone who witnessed them.
Abbott’s booklet was originally published in 1908 and immediately caused a stir among conjurors. They could not believe the descriptions of Joseffy’s wondrous effects. Now you can be judge if the contents of this magical classic are fact or fiction. The Rising Cards, The Enigmatic Cube, The Congress of Nations, and of course, Balsamo, the Living Skull, are just a few of Joseffy’s creations meticulously described in this unabridged edition.
Original copies of Abbott’s booklet are very hard to obtain. When a copy becomes available it usually sells for over a hundred dollars. Now you can add a copy of the original 25-page text, complete with 15 photographs, to your library. This new, limited edition also contains a rare, four-page program of Joseffy, as well as a facsimile of a 1925 S.A.M program that the master magician appeared on. A striking cover featuring Joseffy holding Balsamo rounds out this strictly limited edition.
Own a copy of The Marvelous Creations of Joseffy for only $20.00! (plus $4.00 U.S. Priority Mail-UNITED STATES CUSTOMERS ONLY-NO EXCEPTIONS). Remember ONLY 250 NUMBERED COPIES have been printed.
