This volume is the outcome of a letter to the publishers from a prominent magical dealer, who said:
"If the Magical Public as a whole could once actually see your publications and thus be brought to an instant realization of their novelty of contents, their elaborate illustration and the fact that their sale is restricted to magicians only, I feel certain that you would at once receive an order from almost every person interested in the subject of Magic."
In order to test the foregoing assertion, the publishers have prepared the present booklet as a means of placing in the hands of magical readers within the shortest space of time, full descriptions of the features and contents of these publications, in order that the reader may draw his own conclusions of the value of these publications, or of their interest to him. To make it unnecessary for the reader to rely upon their advertised descriptions, the publishers have also placed before him in this volume a few extracts of these volumes in order that the books may stand upon their own merit, and the reader be the judge beforehand as to which will be of interest to him.
Regardless of the fact that this booklet is distributed under conditions and at a price which is considerably less than the cost of production, every effort has been made to give the reader full value in the matter of quantity-in fact, we know of no book sold at five or ten times the price which has five or ten times the amount of contents.
We feel that this book should not be regarded strictly as an advertisement, for the contents of the book is complete in itself. And whatever descriptive matter is included is entirely additional and included at the expense of the publishers. However, if it is preferred to regard the booklet in the light of advertising, surely no fairer advertising could be devised than one of which the object is to assist the recipient to make a wise selection.
We trust that the reader will find herein full value in the way of magical material and at the same time gain some acquaintance with the nature and contents of our regular publications and the manner of their production; and their distribution through magical depots exclusively.
